Kuwait to stop renewal of residency if any of the family member violates residency law

Online residency renewal from January 2019

 The interior ministry plans to begin renewing expats’ residency permits online from January 2019. According to local media report, a trial will start for renewing residencies of domestic helpers under citizens’ sponsorship from this September 2018. The interior ministry’s IT department has finalized the program that involves a form that is to be filled online, documents to be uploaded and an undertaking signed.

According to report, the link has already established with various ministries such as social affairs and labor ministry, health ministry and the forensics and residency affairs departments.

The payment will be either automatic or when printing the residence on the passport.

This project will save time and effort, as it will contribute to easing the burden on expatriates, especially since most of them are employees and have obligations.
