Kuwait is reportedly cancelling the work permits of 2,400 expatriate teachers and replace them Kuwaiti, according to a local media report.
Al Qabas newspaper quoted education authorities in Kuwait as saying that the Interior Ministry has been requested to cancel the residency permits of 1,900 non-Kuwaiti teachers. A further 500 teachers have resigned, according to the newspaper.
The expatriate teachers have reportedly been given three months to correct their status in the country and settle any dues. Their services will reportedly be discontinued by the end of the school year.
Al Qabas quoted sources as saying that the Human Resource Department at the Education Ministry is keen to finalise procedures as soon as possible.
Earlier this month, it was reported that the Kuwait Ministry of Education planned to hire 600 teachers from Jordan and Palestine for the upcoming academic year.
Undersecretary of the Ministry of Education, Osama Al Sultan, has reportedly outlined the requirements for expat teachers in the next academic year. ICA/Expat Media
