Albayan.ae, an Arabic language newspaper in UAE, while quoting a letter from the The General Directorate of Residency Affairs, states that the instructions were issued not to grant an entry visa for domestic workers to African countries that have no embassies inside the country unless the validity of the passport is not less than 3 years.

According to the newspaper, the five African countries include Djibouti, Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, Guinea, and Guinea – Bissau.

Earlier, the Kuwaiti government had suspended 14 other African countries such as Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Togo, Senegal, Malawi, Chad, Sierra Leone, Niger, Tanzania, the Gambia, Ghana, Zimbabwe and Madagascar.

The circular also notes that temporary ban has been placed on domestic workers from Cameroon, the Congo, Burundi, Eritrea and Liberia.
