How to Get a Work Visa for Kuwait

Kuwait Work Visa

Kuwait Work Visa

If you are a foreigner and have a job ready for you in Kuwait, you need to get a work visa.
You need to know that the work visa and work permit are two different things. You must work with your employer to secure your work permit first. Full details on that process can be found here at the Kuwait Ministry. You should see a button on the page that says “Residence Visa.” Click on that button and read the page. There you will find pretty much all you need to know about getting a work and residence permit.

After you have secured the work permit, you then need to get the work entry visa at your closest embassy or consulate. A good guideline for the sorts of documents required can be found here at the Embassy of Kuwait in Washington D.C.
