‘Trained domestics at low cost available very soon’ – Rates can’t be cut to KD 350
August 9, 2017, 10:05 am

An official from Al-Durra Domestic Company stated the cost of bringing in a domestic worker to Kuwait cannot be reduced to KD 350 under any circumstances due to tight competition among neighboring countries recruiting domestic workers from their countries of origin. He pointed out that the company will bear the legal and financial responsibility if the domestic worker is not handed over to the sponsor within 24 hours upon arrival.

He noted the company is working hard to offer trained domestic workers at low cost and also preparing to sign contracts with three countries before Eid Al-Adha to supply domestic workers starting from October 2017. He stated the company has since addressed the Union of Consumer Cooperative Societies to specify six offices at the cooperative societies in all six governorates to fulfill transactions.

He noted the company’s transactions will be done electronically (online) and the sponsor only have to submit the application to the website without any need to present documents in person. Meanwhile, the Ambassador of Sri Lanka to Kuwait said the launch of Al-Durra Company for Domestic Workers in the next few months will not affect the activities of other domestic offices.

He denied the cost of hiring domestic workers might be reduced to KD 350 as alleged on social media. He reiterated the cost of bringing in Sri Lankan domestic worker is subject to supply and demand.
