The visa cancellations were a combination of work and residency violations and people wanting to leave the country.
Despite the visa cancellations Kuwait is seeing an overall increase in the size of its labour force.
Official data shows the country’s overall labour force stood at 2,790,287 by the end of last year, an increase of 12.7 per cent on 2021.
