Relations have since evolved and Kuwait repeatedly announced multimillion dollar donations for development projects in Palestine. In April 2016, the Education Ministry announced its plan to recruit hundreds of Palestinians to teach Mathematics and Science in public schools. These teachers will be hired from Palestine or locally from the Palestinian community in the country, it added.

Nevertheless, as the Education Ministry announced its decision to end the hiatus, its interior counterpart said the Palestinian passport is not enough to grant them residency permit that will allow them to stay and work in the country. The legal hurdle was cleared one month later after the ministry said it would request Palestinians to present their passports as well as their laissez-passers when they apply for the residency permits. “We need the laissez-passer because it allows us to deport the expatriate in case he breaks the laws of Kuwait,” a ministry official said.

“It is the guarantee that we need as a security department so that we do not encounter issues we faced when dealing with Palestinians carrying Syrian, Jordanian or Egyptians documents, who were not accepted back on deportation by the countries that gave them the documents.” But as Palestinians will be back in Kuwaiti classrooms, a lawmaker has called for replacing expatriate teachers with Kuwaiti nationals in a bid to reduce the number of foreigners in the country. MP Osama Al Shaheen said there was an urgent need to address the demographic imbalance and suggested that removing foreign teachers would contribute to it.

“The number of foreigners in Kuwait, according to the figures released in April is 3,064,193, and they represent 69 per cent of the total population,” he said. “The figures indicate that the country has 71,014 teachers out of which 46,079 are Kuwaiti nationals. It means that there are 24,935 Arab and foreign teachers which can be replaced by Kuwaiti men and women,” the lawmaker said at a press conference on Tuesday.
