Company File Closed - Can We Transfer Residence To New Company
Category: Humans Of Kuwait
I wanted to ask your advice on an issue we are facing. My father is working in a private firm, visa Article 18 for the last 2 years. He was hired locally. He wants to transfer to a new company/ new sponsor. We have come to know that the previous company’s files have been closed by Shoon (Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor), under article 72.
1. Will it be possible for him to get a release from the old company? If so, what will be the steps to be taken?
2. Can the new company/ new sponsor take up the case with the Shoon directly regarding the transfer or do we need to approach the Shoon ourselves?
3. His residence is valid for one more month. Will it be possible to get another temporary extension? If so, can it be done by the new company/ new sponsor?
