“The government has not decided to deport expatriates from the country and it does not intend to do so”, says the State Minister for Cabinet Affairs Sheikh Mohammad Al-Abdullah Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah in an attempt to dissipate fears over forced deportation of expatriates from the country.

He went on to say, “The existing vibes in this regard are related to the file concerning rectification of the imbalance of population structure through organizational measures which will only affect marginal and unproductive labor force that represent the cause of this population crisis”.

Sheikh Mohammad Al-Abdullah stressed that the statements or reports over possible move to deport thousands of expatriates were not issued by the government, urging the public to acquire information from official sources instead of believing everything published on social media.

When asked whether the government has an organized strategy to reduce the number of expatriates by imposing pressure on them through increased charges and taxes, Sheikh Mohammad Al-Abdullah responded by asking, “Did you hear from any government official that the government wants to expel thousands of expatriates from Kuwait?”.

The minister explained that any decision concerning the expatriate labor force will be taken in accordance with the law as well as in consideration of humanitarian aspects. A work team will be formed to prepare a comprehensive report on how to deal with the population imbalance based on the state’s vision. Sheikh Mohammad Al-Abdullah affirmed that the government will put its foot down when the parliament decides to discuss this issue, adding that the government, when asked to present its side, will do so in a bid to cooperate and coordinate with the parliament.
