PACI Kuwait stops correcting names on Civil ID

PACI Kuwait continues to provide its electronic services for the Latin name whether checking it before printing the civil ID card or after it has been corrected but will not make the corrections as it was done before.

The number of transactions for renewal of civil IDs, which began on March 10 after the ministry decided to do away with the residence sticker on the passport, has exceeded 250,000 at a rate of up to 20,000 IDs per day and the IDs were full of errors committed by the employees of the Ministry of Interior Kuwait.

They pointed out some departments had earlier succeeded in correcting the name after a request was submitted without having to wait for completion of transactions since they were notified by SMS after completion, but other departments did not follow suit causing unprecedented chaos.

Some residents complained that their names on their IDs were correct both in Arabic and English but after the renewal they were shocked to find serious mistakes and erroneous amendments which forced them to visit the immigration departments again and submit requests for correction for which they had to wait in queue for hours.
