Kuwait embassy in Cairo flooded with requests for Kuwait visa

The Embassy of Kuwait in Cairo admitted it receives thousands of visa requests each month from Egyptians seeking work in Kuwait. Earlier the Egyptian Directorate of Manpower and Immigration had stated that it receives over 5,000 applications each month related to visas for Kuwait, including for reviewing their contract and authenticating their certificates and other documents.

The Directorate said that it reviews the clauses in the contracts in order to protect the rights of the workers overseas, such as ensuring the wage is appropriate for the profession, the contract covers the accommodation, annual leave, and adequate medical treatment, and the sponsor would bear the costs of the flight tickets.
