About Visa

Work Visas are 'Iqamas' granted to public and private sector employees.  On accepting an employment offer, the procedure to obtain Kuwait Residence Visa on a Work Visa begins.

Application Procedure:

  •  The employment offer is made and accepted  
  •   The sponsor applies for the work permit at the MSA&L (Ministry of Social Affairs & Labour)  
  •   Private sector employers obtain an NOC (No Objection Certificate) from the Criminal Investigation Department  
  •  On receipt of the work permit from the MSA&L the employer sends a copy to the employee in his country of origin.  This copy is then to be submitted to the Kuwaiti Embassy for endorsement, after which an entry visa is applied for.
  •  On arriving/returning to Kuwait the employee is obliged to undergo further medical tests which comprise a chest x-ray and blood tests for HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, Hepatitis (B&C), Typhoid and Malaria. If any person is found to be carrying any of the above diseases they are immediately deported 
  •  Fingerprinting and security clearance is mandatory for all expatriates arriving in Kuwait 
  •  Application for the residence permit is to be made at the Immigration & Passport Department in Shuwaikh. A maximum period of five years will be granted at a cost of KD10 per year
