KUWAIT: Minister of Social Affairs and Labor and Planning and Development Hind Al-Subaih said owners of major companies will be allowed to apply for visas online and that this measure will end many problems resulting from crowding. Speaking during a surprise tour at the Capital labor department, Subaih said that she had given direct instructions to automate transaction applications and online applications as soon as possible.

She added that the tour was part of many others of various labor departments to probe the progress of work and listen to both employees’ and citizens’ complaints in person.

The minister added that she would ask for full lists of the number of employees working in each department so as to know understaffed ones and work on ending the shortage.
