Ambassador of Kuwait, Nawaf Abdulaziz Al-Enezi, called on Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf at the Prime Minister’s House on Friday and informed him that the Kingdom of Kuwait is considering to lift restrictions on issuance of visas to Pakistani workers.
Kuwait had imposed a total ban on all types of visas for Pakistanis in Kuwait in May 2011 and the ban included suspending all tourism, visit and trade visas as well as visas sponsored by spouses. Such curbs were also slapped on nationals from Syria, Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan.
The ban was attributed to the “difficult security conditions in the five countries” and to “the remarkably increasing tendency of nationals from the five countries to apply for visas to bring in relatives who faced or could face arrest by local authorities,” said the Kuwaiti media reports.
Mr. Nawaf Abdulaziz Al-Enezi also informed the Prime Minister that a high powered delegation would be visiting Pakistan soon to recruit doctors, paramedics and workers, a PM office statement said.
Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf, during his visit to Kuwait on the sidelines of Asian Cooperation Dialogue (ACD) Summit, had taken up the issue of visas with His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, who had assured him of looking into the matter.
Former Prime Minister, Yusuf Raza Gilani, had also raised the issue during his visit to Kuwait.
While talking to Ambassador of Kuwait, Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf said that Pakistan and Kuwait enjoy close relations which are growing from strength to strength.
The Prime Minister praised the wisdom and sagacity of the Ameer of Kuwait and asked the Ambassador to convey his greetings and best wishes to him.
