The Ministry of Interior (MoI) is in the process of putting in place a plan to arrest these violators and deport them from the country after making them pay the fines for staying illegally in the country which is a maximum of KD 600 per person.

Also, the sponsors will be forced to pay for their air fare tickets and measures also will be taken against them which the government deems necessary. A majority of the violators of the law are believed to be bulk menial labor who were brought into the country by visa traders and left to fend for themselves on the streets of Kuwait.
