Kuwait’s Proposal Envisions Forcing Expats to Leave to Claim Indemnity

In Kuwait, a legislative plan on the population structure and several executive measures is to take place through a government-parliamentary meeting.

Apparently, the sources said the government and the National Assembly agreed that if an expat has to leave Kuwait, the expat should submit a document as a proof that he is leaving the country to receive indemnity upon termination or resignation from a job whether in a public or private sector.

With the employment of hundreds of expats, there was inflated employment in ministries which hinders employment of Kuwaiti nationals.  The plan also envisions the stopping of granting licenses for some professions under communities which had grown tremendously.
