Looking at the direction where the government is taking its processing of work documents and residency transactions, we can see the merits and importance this change has been doing to society in general.
Other than filtering quality workers, curbing illegal recruitment, as well as cases of abuse and injustice, the digitalized method of processing transactions will offer more convenience, security, speed, and accuracy in carrying out such procedures from this point onward.
Three Engineers with Fake Work Permits Nabbed
In line with these changes, the electronic linking between the government and private entities has led to the discovery of a large number of cases of workers who were permitted entry in the country with forged degrees and qualifications, for which they were able to get jobs and residencies, as shared in a report by the Kuwait Times.
According to Head of the Engineers Society Eng Faisal Al-Atal, the prosecution was able to arrest three Indian nationals for using fake documents and work permits.
As per investigations, the three accused did not meet conditions to be issued work permits, as authorized by the engineering society’s approval. Furthermore, the foreign nationals’ work permits had been the basis for which they were granted residency permits.
Atal explained that residency investigators asked about the three Indian nationals working in the oil sector, and discovered that they had files at the society but were denied accreditation.
As of this time, investigations are still underway.
The government’s electronic screening of documents is already making positive impact in the community, which has long been troubled with immigration and residency issues.
With cases of forgery and illegal residency being discovered easily as a standard, soon enough, the government will have better control of its labour and immigration sectors, which hopefully could translate to faster economic growth and better relations between citizens and expats in the country.
