March 10, 2014, 9:20 am

Minister of Social Affairs and Labor Hind Al-Sabeeh is expected to take a decision within this week on the transfer of commercial visit visas to work permits in the private sector for expatriates who entered the country after Feb 16, 2014.

On the other hand, Undersecretary Abdul-mohsin Al-Mutairi disclosed the Employees Affairs Committee held its first meeting Sunday, during which the members discussed the need to fill up vacancies in the ministry. He affirmed, ‘’The judiciary upheld the decision on the retirement of those who have been in service in the government sector for more than 30 years.”

Al-Mutairi added that in line with the directive of HH the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak to limit expenditures, the ministry decided to vacate the rented offices in Behbehani Complex in Sharq starting from the end of May. He disclosed the Labor Relations Department and the Capital Inspection Unit will be relocated to the Capital Governorate Labor Department.

He said the ministry will save KD 428,000 annually through this step, indicating that “we have started expediting the process to vacate the offices before the deadline in August to save KD 357,000 — the value of the remaining period of the contract.’’
