More than 2,000 domestic workers were deported following their arrest in crackdowns against domestic help offices carried out in the past 10 months, an Interior Ministry official announced yesterday.

All detainees were arrested on absconding charges and violating labor regulations by seeking jobs with other employers than their original recruiter, Director General of the Residency Affairs General Department Major General Talal Maarafi said. Authorities carried out 1,387 crackdowns from January 1, 2016 to October 31, 2016, during which 2,048 maids were arrested, including 248 from Zimbabwe alone. All of the maids arrested were later deported through Kuwait International Airport, he said.
