Kuwaitis will soon replace expatriates

As a complement to the scenario of replacing Kuwaitis and ending the work of expatriates, they replaced Kuwaitis with many positions and ministries in the country, and several ministries have recently begun to implement the policy and end the work of expatriates.


As the Parliamentary Legislative Committee approached the approval of the Law for the Promotion of Public Jobs in the State, submitted by five deputies and was referred to the National Assembly on the agenda of the next session.

He referred it to the relevant committee, the Human Resources Development Committee.

The proposal aims to create job opportunities for citizens in the public sector in addition to modifying the demographics that witness unbalance in the country.

The implementation of the substitution policy has already started for Kuwaitis, appointing citizens instead of expatriates in new jobs, and deporting expatriates immediately, and not allowing them to work in the private sector and transferring sponsorship to them. More than 800,000 expatriates in Kuwait are now at risk of leaving.

Where the Kuwaiti government recently reduced foreign labor in the country from 70 to 30% of the total population, according to the Law on Reducing Migrant Workers, which was approved by the Legal and Legislative Committee in the National Assembly, and thus will leave about 800 thousand Indians, where Indians represent the largest proportion of Total arrivals, as they exceed one million people, followed by Pakistan, the Philippines, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Egypt.

 Several ministries have already begun to end the services of expatriate employees working for the government, especially the Ministry of Education.
