Amendments being drafted to Kuwait’s property laws will not grant expats permanent residency status, one of the lawmakers has clarified.
Speaking to Arab Times, Dr Rola Dashti, one of the five legislators involved in drafting the bill, explained that under the new arrangements, expats who have been living in the country for more than ten years will be able to buy their own property.
However, he added that this does not grant them additional rights as a citizen and if they lose their job and need to leave the country, they will also be required to sell the property.
Currently, only Arabs with official permits are allowed to buy property in Kuwait. The new laws will entitle all expats to buy one apartment not larger than 250 square metres.
According to the Kuwait Times, there is still considerable ground to be covered in creating a healthcare system that offers equal levels of service to both nationals and expats.
A recent article in the paper advised potential expats to be mindful that there is effectively a two-tier healthcare system for nationals and non-residents in the country.
