The cost of hiring domestic workers from abroad through domestic labor recruitment offices has increased remarkably from KD750 to KD1,200.The cost of turning over domestic workers to their sponsors reached KD1,500; attributing the recent increase to the lack of knowledge of a ministerial decision obligating domestic labor recruitment offices to define the cost.One of the reasons behind the recent increase in the cost of hiring domestic workers is that a number of countries like Ethiopia and Nepal stopped sending domestic workers to Kuwait.-K.T.
