Kuwait: Parliament to consider tax on migrant workers' remittance transfers

"Kuwait: Parliament favours tax on expat remittances," 18 Feb 2021

A proposal to levy a tax on remittances by expatriates in Kuwait has resurfaced after a failed attempt at the country’s previous parliament.

The legislative Committee at the current Kuwaiti legislature, elected in December, has requested that a tax on transfers should be confined to those of migrant workers and that transfers involving Kuwaiti citizens should be exempted...

the Legislative Committee... said that the envisaged tax should not be the same on all transfers and should make distinction depending on the transferred sums of money.

... that the small transfers carried out by foreign domestic workers should be exempted from the proposed tax.
