New proposal to reduce number of expats in the country

Five Kuwaiti lawmakers, Khalil Abul, Oudah Al-Oudah, Abdulwahab Al-Babtain, Omar Al-Tabtabaei and Ahmad Al-Fadhl, prepared a draft law to cut the number of expatriates in Kuwait in order to reach a demographic balance within five years. 

As per report, the MPs calls to establish a higher national committee for the demographic structure to be headed by the interior minister. The proposed committee will take the necessary measures to make Kuwaitis and expatriates equal in number after five years. 

However, as per report the proposal exempted the domestic helpers, contract workers who are recruited to work on specific large development projects and children of Kuwaiti women with non-Kuwaiti husbands. Currently there are over 650,000 expatriates working as domestic workers in the country. At present, out of a population of 4.4 million people, Kuwaitis make up just 30 percent, or 1.33 million. 

Also, the draft law stipulates that the size of any single foreign community should not exceed 30 percent of the total foreigners in the country. As per his calculation, the number of Indians and Egyptians cannot exceed 500,000 people, or 30 percent of the expected 1.6 million expats. Currently there are over 900,000 Indians and 600,000 Egyptian expatriates in the country.

Although the bill was submitted to the previous Parliament and tabled for discussion by the then Health Affairs Committee, it was put off for further consultations and elaboration of details to fulfill the desire of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. MP Khaleel Al-Saleh submitted the bill again followed by the government’s approval considering the system is practiced in most countries.

In a press statement, Al-Saleh affirmed that the proposed fees are necessary and the bill is an important national demand. He emphasized the bill will see light in the current Parliament, “especially since the government is convinced that it is proper and it is considered one of the steps towards reducing pressure on government hospitals and stopping wastage of medicines.”

He affirmed his proposal got approval from the government after some opposition from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs when he submitted it for discussion to the Health Affairs Committee in the previous National Assembly.

He pointed out a comprehensive health insurance policy for expatriates guarantees stopping wastage of public funds, eliminate chaos in providing treatment, activate role of the private sector and reduce pressure on government hospitals. He explained the bill obliges the sponsor of a visiting expatriate to attach a comprehensive health policy recognized by a licensed insurance company for the visitor to receive free health services throughout the period of stay in Kuwait.

Meanwhile, Chairperson of the committee MP Saad Al-Khanfoor clarified the bill was discuseed in the previous Parliament and the panel decided to put it off, indicating resubmitting it necessitates discussion with concerned parties.

Committee Rapporteur MP Khaled Al-Otaibi believes the bill will be endorsed once it is discussed in the committee taking into consideration the current critical economic situation, let alone the fact that this system is practiced in many countries.
