Kuwait to stop renewal of residency if any of the family member violates residency law
The Ministry of Interior is planning to conduct intensive security check to rectify the status of illegal expats in Kuwait.
Residency of any member of an expat family living in Kuwait, will not be renewed if one of them is proven to have violated the Kuwait Residency Law until the latter rectifies his status by leaving the country or legalizing his status, indicating this also applies to expatriates who entered the country on visit visa.
The Residency Affairs General Department, said same applies to citizens whose domestic workers (Article 20), clarifying that a citizen’s transactions will be blocked if the domestic worker is found to have violated the Residency Law.
This step will be taken as per the new instructions issued and applied by the Residency Affairs General Department.
