Kuwait: PACI completed pending civil IDs
Director General of Public Authority for Civil Information (PACI) Musa’d Al-Asousi, announced on Sunday that 1,05,000 civil IDs of Kuwaiti nationals were issued by August 20. Civil IDs of citizens are now issued in 24 hours in case they do not have any issuing restrictions, or major references like changing of home addresses, he said.
He also added that PACI issued 26,000 IDs for domestic workers during the last weekend, to reach a total of 115,000 cards since resumption of work last July 5. The cards are distributed through PACI branches.
PACI issued 190,000 IDs for expatriates since July 5 to reach 410,000 cards, he affirmed.
“My Mobile ID” application will replace civil Id in many governmental and private sector transactions, along with authentication and electronic signature, he said.
Al-Asousi thanked all PACI workers for their relentless efforts, working for 12 hours daily to fullfill these achivements in 40 working days.
