For anyone who has anything to do with the immigration departments you probably won't see anything until after September 4. My company was told by our sponsor that for 2 weeks there will be nothing done for our visas processes and we should wait until after September 4 to proceed.
At least 5 days off on Eid Al-Fitr:
KUWAIT CITY, Aug 20:
The government will declare a 5-day holiday if this Ramadan is of 29 days and Eid Al-Fitr falls on Tuesday. However, the holidays will stretch to six days holiday if Ramadan is of 30 days and Eid falls on Wednesday, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily.
A source also revealed that the Ministry of Finance transferred the salaries of civil servants to various banks on Thursday Aug 18 based on the directives of the Council of Ministers to help workers fulfill their needs for Eid Al-Fitr festivities.
The directives also include an early payment of pensions for Kuwaiti retirees — beginning August 25, instead of early September, and all government workers are expected to receive their salaries before the end of this week.
At least 5-6 days off for Eid, this is the time I really miss working for Kuwaiti companies.
