Expats above 65 yrs issuance, renewal and transfer of work permit to be barred

  • Government

Kuwait Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) organized extensive meetings with the representatives of Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) and employers’ unions to discuss the proposed decision to bar issuance, renewal and transfer of work permit for individuals reaching 65 years old, reports Al-Seyassah daily.



Concurrently to the meeting, sources from “PAM” expected the proposal to be endorsed with some exceptions in various professions.

The sources also indicated the decision to bar recruitment of university certificate holders who are below 30 years have been postponed.

In a statement, Director of KCCI Hamad Al-Omar explained that the meeting presented the motives behind the proposal and its objectives, which aim to organize the labor market to provide opportunity for youth employment — whether citizens or expatriates, while eliminating some negative phenomena such as tacit trade connivance.

Al-Omar indicated the representatives of employers’ unions asserted the decision might be positive in some aspects.

They reaffirmed their objection to the idea of restricting employers from hiring whosoever fulfills their requirements, and disregarding their right to select or keep experts that participated in the creation and rehabilitation process.



The meeting ended with KCCI requesting the employers’ unions to send their insights and suggestions concerning the issue to KCCI, which in turn will communicate with the Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) to reach a harmonized solution that caters for the needs of private sector in the interest of the national economy.
