Hiring contractors in Kuwait can be a rollercoaster

Hiring independent contractors in the State of Kuwait can be a daunting process. You have to classify Kuwaiti contractors correctly, ensure they have a work visa from the Public Authority of Manpower if they aren’t citizens, and pay contractors in Kuwaiti Dinar (KWD). Rippling helps you expand your global team while remaining compliant with local laws.
