The cost of bringing in domestic workers from abroad is set at a maximum of KD990 dinars through offices and KD390 for domestic workers requested directly by the Kuwaiti employer, after the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI) and the Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) confirmed in a press release, Al Qabas reported.
The obligations of the recruitment office owner are specified, most notably that the recruitment office guarantees the domestic worker will work for a period of six month, during which the office will return the domestic worker to his country and provide a refund to the employer if there is an obstacle preventing the domestic worker from being employed at the home of the sponsor.
They affirmed their keenness to reduce the financial burden on citizens and expats, calling on them to report any increase in prices through the Consumer Protection Hotline of MoCI on No. 135, or by the e-mail of the workforce: Domestic.email@example.com
They stressed that “they will not hesitate to enforce the law towards those who exploit the office licenses to bring domestic workers in a way that is in violation of the active laws.”
