73 Stranded Indian Nurses in Kuwait to Start Work Next Week by katty : January 10, 2019, 01:24:22 PM
 A group of 73 stranded Indian nurses will start work at public hospitals and clinics in Kuwait next week.

The nurses were left unemployed for the past years under contracts signed with the Ministry of Health.

The Indian Embassy in Kuwait exerted all efforts to reach the agreement with the Ministry of Health.



The nurses have been attending training programmes and workshops for almost a month before taking their new jobs next week, Kuwait Times reported.

Out of a total of 80 nurses who were stranded in Kuwait, 73 were officially employed by the ministry of health, while the remaining seven either went back to India for good or transferred to dependent visas.

The nurses applied and got the job in India, and came to Kuwait through legal channels from Bangalore, Cochin, Delhi and Mumbai.

Once in Kuwait, the ministry questioned their documents. The group of nurses, all with nursing qualifications from India and recruited by health ministry officials, are living in government housing, but were unable to work pending verification of their certifications.

They were hired directly by health ministry representatives after they held interviews from February to April 2015.

In 2015, the ministry of health conducted interviews and exams in India and around 1,500 nurses were hired and issued temporary visas that allowed them to enter Kuwait. The 80 nurses were part of that batch.
