Minister of Social Affairs and Labor, State Minister for Economic Affairs Hind Al-Sabeeh stressed that Kuwait will continue to use all legal means to fight against visa trafficking, and pointed to the 7,197 court rulings against fake companies involved in visa trafficking since 2014. She noted the total amount of fines collected from those companies exceeds KD 12 million.

On the subject of workers registered with those fake companies, Sabeeh stated that the owners were ordered to cancel their visas, and detectives were assigned to search and apprehend the workers for deportation.

In other news, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) has suspended 3,140 contracts of non-Kuwaitis in state departments since 1 July, 2018, according to CSC President Ahmad Al-Jassar. Following their suspension, the employees will be terminated as part of a plan to create more jobs for national manpower, as part of the state’s strategy to ‘Kuwaitize’ the public sector, reported Al-Jarida daily.
