Kuwait increases private sector holidays to 35 days

  • Kuwait News

Private sector leave in Kuwait has been increased to 35 days – from the current 30 – as part of a raft of amendments to the country’s labour laws.




According to an agreement signed by the National Assembly’s health and social affairs committee, the amendment applies to Kuwaiti nationals and expatriates alike.

Osama Al-Shaheen, a member of parliament, told the Kuwait Times that the committee also approved a draft law stipulating stiff penalties for those who raise charity funds without a license and raises penalties for those who “disparage” charitable work.

Additionally, MPs also plan to this week debate legislation mandating that foreign visitors to Kuwait have medical insurance for their stay in a bid to prevent people coming to the country for medical treatment.



A separate bill up for debate would establish a government food authority.
