I have been working in a local Kuwaiti contracting company for the last 18 months. My question is after how many years can I seek transfer to another company in Kuwait.
Answer: If your current company brought you to Kuwait from your home country, then you have to work for them for a total of three years to be able to transfer to another company. On the other hand if you were hired locally you need to work one year for the company if you are not a university graduate; but if you are a graduate you can ask for a transfer at any point in time during your service to the company. We must point out, however, that if the type of visa you are holding is a project visa, you cannot transfer to just any other company of your choice but only to a company that would issue you a project visa.
