After reports that Ghanaian girls are being maltreated in Kuwait, Ghana’s Ambassador to Saudi Arabia has announced that Girls who would want to travel to Kuwait to work as maidservants will not be issued with Visas.
Speaking on Atinka FM AM Drive , Alhaji Sinare revealed that the Ghanaian government is in talks with the Kuwaiti Government to halt the issuance of ‘visa 20 ‘to Ghanaian girls who want to travel to the Gulf State to do menial jobs .
The decision was arrived at after 62 Ghanaian Girls Rescued In Kuwait were due to be repatriated this week, a move which will curb abuse of innocent girls.
Alhaji Sinare further said that it’s a shame to see people contacting illegal agencies for jobs and ending up being abused. He said government only recognizes 22 legal recruiting agencies in the country and therefore warned young girls to be cautious when choosing these agencies.
He said there will be no more visas to Kuwait for menial jobs until things are properly regularized.
