IOM IN YOUR COUNTRY

Overview

Kuwait is host country to a vast number of overseas contract workers, where 70 % of its population is comprised of expatriates from countries in the Arab region, South and South-East Asia and Africa, who are predominately employed in the construction sector and service industry. The single largest expatriate community in Kuwait is comprised of Indians, whereas Egyptian nationals are the second largest but comprise the largest foreign Arab population. The government of Kuwait does not grant legal citizenship to foreigners except in very rare cases, which leads to temporary labour mobility being the most predominant form of migration, especially from countries in South Asia.
