While investigating 450 companies and offices, 300 have already been investigated where it was found that these companies had no commercial activity yet 100,000 workers were registered. The visas were acquired through fictions companies and visas were sold to expats.

According to the report, many workers under these companies had already left Kuwait when the authorities initiated a strict check on them. Others are waiting for their flights to resume.

Drastic steps are being taken as these companies had issued visas to expats and none of the expats were working for them, but the release was given by the visa traders. Applying regulations the Govt will amend demographics as well as control the companies issuing visas.
