    Is the visa already here?

    not yet sheenz. if the visas are here already, they will most probably be calling for us to pay the placement fee or at least, part of it

    hi lucz, so funny that ms ****** called me and said the deployment will be in february.. just few days back they are telling end of jan.. hehehe.. and she clarified that we r under subcon and might not receive the same salary as what nurses under MOH have.. but OT and other benefits are excluded.. so you can get more than 850 (i guess).. which bothers me a lot is the working hrs.. 10 hrs a wk- 6 days a wk..
    Please be aware that in MOH hospitals there is no such thing as overtime. We dont do overtime here and no double pay for holidays, instead if you are on duty on a special holiday, you will just get an additional off (they call it balance off). I have no idea for private hospitals though. Also, havent heard of a 10-hrs duty here in MOH. Our shifting is 7am-2pm, 2pm-10pm and 10pm-7am.

    @ sir dinx ... Hello there sir... Just wanna ask, did you sign first the job offer before your medical or vice versa? Because the agency told us to have our medical first then if fit to work, next step visa processing, then the final job offer will be seen. I don't know why the agency having a hard time to present to us the job offer, the fact that we should review first the offer of the employer before we proceed to the next step, is that right sir? So that we have a choice if we will pursue our application or not... The agency told me that 850 US dollar is the basic salary, but for the other benefits like OT, night diff, etc, they don't know, she said to wait for the final offer, but we have to do our medical first...I also want to ask you, the time when you signed your job offer here in Philippines, is it only the basic salary that is indicated in the offer? And what about the other allowances like OT, area of specialty, night diff, etc , did they also included it in the offer Or in Kuwait? Thanks for your reply
    first and foremost, the agency should have your visas in there hands before they will let you do the medicals, the reason for this is your medical result might expire already and your visa is not yet available so it is jus a waste of time and money.

    We signed the job offer as soon as we were declared fit to work. During our hiring process, we were advised of the offered salary and it was the exact salary we signed in the conract, but there is no breakdown as to the basic salary, night differential and other benefits. We only came to know the breakdown when we started our formalities here in Kuwait. What the Philippine agencies advertised regarding the salary offer was what we got.

    @dinxWhen you arrived in kuwait, how many days before you started your duty? Do they conduct trainings before you start your duty proper?

    @ sir dinx, I just want to ask if it's possible that the agency will be the one who will make the job offer letter instead of the employer? Thank you..
