Kuwait: Over-60s Expatriate Ban Reversed

Gulf News (United Arab Emirates), 8 October 2021: A Kuwaiti Government agency has reversed a ban on expatriates over 60 who do not have a university degree from renewing their work permit.

The decision was revered by the Legal Advice and Legislation Department.

It was issued by the Public Authority of Manpower in August 2020 without authorisation.

They issued a subsequent decision allowing expatriates over 60 to renew their residency permits in for 2,000 Dinars.

The Commerce Minister as Chairman of the Public Authority of Manpower will now have to issue a decision to reverse the ban.
