Good News – No Employers Can Hold Your Passport

Companies in Kuwait will no longer be allowed to withhold employees’ passports under new labour laws being written, according to Arabic daily Al Shahed.

A draft resolution is expected to be submitted to the Minister of Social Affairs and Labor and Minister of Planning and Development Hind Al- Subaih before the end of this month, the daily said, quoting ministry sources.

The change follows similar legislation amendments in Qatar, which has experienced heightened attention on its khafala system while thousands of South Asians are working on World Cup 2022 construction projects.

Under Kuwait’s planned new law, employees still would be prohibited from leaving the country without the approval of their sponsor and written travel permit from the newly established Public Authority for Manpower (PAM).
