MP Kamel Al-Awadhi yesterday called on the Interior Ministry to suspend all residency transactions for the Indian community in retaliation to the Indian Embassy’s KD 700 deposit rule for domestic helpers. Awadhi, who has been campaigning against the Indian embassy decision, called on the interior ministry to suspend family visits for Indians living in Kuwait, but insisted that he “respected Indians”.

The row was triggered after the Indian embassy in Kuwait implemented a decision by the Indian government that every employer of Indian domestic helpers must deposit KD 700 at the embassy to ensure regular payment of salaries and fair treatment of the workers. Awadhi said that Kuwaiti authorities should not allow the Indian embassy to act as a court and let disputes be solved by the Kuwaiti judiciary.


The lawmaker, who was director of the immigration department, was commenting on an answer by the foreign ministry to his question about the Indian embassy’s behavior. He said the foreign ministry said that the question is outside its authority. Awadhi said that the embassy should take the deposit from the recruitment offices and not from Kuwaitis, describing the practice as a violation of Kuwait’s sovereignty.

Earlier Indian had imposed a bank guarantee of KD 720 for female domestic workers coming to Kuwait. Followed by this and by the request of Indian Embassy in Kuwait, Kuwait had stopped issuing domestic worker visa to Indian female domestic workers. The comments by MP Kamel Al-Awadhi yesterday triggered fresh controversy on this subject.
