कुवेतमा ०१ अगष्त’देखी भिजिट भिसामा आएर काम गर्न नपाईने र भिजिट भिसालाई वर्किङ भिसामा परिवर्तन गराउन पनि नसकिने

जय आले, कुवेत

अगष्त २०११ उप्रान्त, कुवेत सरकारले भिजिट भिसामा कुवेत प्रवेश गर्नेहरुलाई काम गर्न रोक लगाएको छ । साथै, व्यावसायिक तथा भिजिट भिसामा आई काम गरेको प्रमाणित भए त्यस्ता कामदारहरुलाई कडा कारबाही गरिने पनि कुवेत सरकारले जनाएको छ । स्पष्ट भन्नुपर्दा, अबदेखी कुवेतमा कुनै पनि विदेशी नागरिकहरु भिजिट भिसामा आई काम गर्न नपाउने र उनिहरुको भिजिट भिसा वर्किङ भिसामा परिवर्तन (कन्भर्ट) गराउन पनि नसकिने नयाँ प्रावधान जारी गरिएको छ ।  

यसै सन्दर्भलाई लिएर नेपाली राजदूतावास कुवेतले पनि आफ्नो बिज्ञप्तीमा कुवेत सरकारले ‘व्यावसायिक तथा भिजिट भिसामा आउने आप्रवासी कामदार वा अन्य कुनै व्यक्तिलाई काम गर्न अनुमति नदिने’ र भिजिट भिसालाई कामदार भिषामा परिवर्तन पनि गर्न नसकिने जानकारी दिंदै, नेपालदेखी धेरै कामदारहरुलाई झुक्याएर भिजिट भिसामा कुवेत ल्याईने र पछी मात्र भिसा परिवर्तन गराई काममा लगाईने तथ्यांकहरु भेटिएकाले आयन्दा त्यस्तो कार्य गरी कुनै पनि नेपालीलाई नझुक्याउन र नफसाउन आग्रह गर्दै र भविष्यमा यदी कसैलाई पनि नेपालदेखी या कुवेतमै बसेर त्यस्तो कार्यमा संलग्न रहेको पाईएमा र सो प्रमाणित भएमा कडा भन्दा कडा कार्वाही गरी कुवेतदेखी डिपोट (देशनिकाला) नै गर्न सकिने चेतावनी दिंदै, नेपाल र कुवेतका सम्पूर्ण नेपाली मेनपावर एजेन्सी एवं व्यवसायीहरुको जानकारीको लागि नेपाली राजदूतावास कुवेतले बिज्ञप्ती जारी गरेको छ । जसलाई हेर्न तलको लिंकमा क्लिक गर्नुहोला..

Ministry to start ban on visit to work visas’ transfer from Aug Over 400 ‘unperforming’ employees receive their pay

KUWAIT CITY, July 28: The Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor, in coordination with the Ministry of Interior and General Immigration Department, will start implementing the decision on banning the transfer of commercial visit visas to work permits by the beginning of August, reports Al-Seyassah daily quoting informed sources.

Sources confirmed Assistant Undersecretary for Labor Affairs Jamal Al-Dosari had a series of meetings with the Interior Ministry officials to study the consequences of the decision, which is aimed at limiting the number of marginal expatriate workers in the country.

On the other hand, Deputy Premier for Legal Affairs, Minister of Justice, Social Affairs and Labor Mohammed Al-Afasi has instructed the Legal Department to refer files of companies, which failed to update their data as part of the requirements for the implementation of the automated system, to the Public Prosecution to take the necessary legal action against them.

In a recently-concluded meeting with officials from the ministry, Automated System, Commerce Ministry and the State Audit Bureau, Al-Afasi disclosed they are currently coordinating with the General Traffic Department (GTD) to control the number of expatriate workers registered as drivers by looking into files of vehicles owned by private companies to ensure that only one driver is allocated for each vehicle.
Meanwhile, State Audit Bureau Undersecretary Mohammed Al-Roumi lauded the decision of Al-Afasi and his role in the successful implementation of the automated system, which has eased procedures in the labor departments in various governorates.

In the meantime, more than 400 employees of one administration in the Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor are paid salaries although they don’t perform any work. Surprisingly around 300 of them actually don’t even report for work, reports Alam Alyawm daily quoting reliable sources.

The same sources say these employees are from the general services administration at the social care sector. They depend on their colleagues to punch their attendance cards. The administration had earlier requested the ministry to stop appointments in the administration but no one paid heed to these requests but to the contrary instead of appointing 400 persons the ministry appointed 800.

The building cannot accommodate all employees and a demand for more desks was turned down for this reason — lack of space. Abdullah Al-Hafour, Director of the Social Care Services Administration, said the number of employees is more than the administration needs.

He added it cannot sack the employees appointed by the Civil Service Commission. He said now they try to send some employees to locations outside the offices and divide the work into three shifts.
