“Over 120,000 Expatriate Offenders set to Benefit from Amnesty Ruling

“The Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Defense, and Acting Minister of Interior, Sheikh Fahad Yousef Al-Sabah, has announced a grace period from March 17, 2024, to June 17, 2024, for expatriates who have violated Kuwait’s residency law. This decision coincides with Ramadan and the new leadership of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Mishal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, showcasing Kuwait’s commitment to humanitarian efforts. During this grace period, violators can pay fines and rectify their residency status. Those unable to do so can leave the country without penalties and return through new procedures. Those facing administrative or judicial obstacles must apply to the Directorate General of Residency Affairs within the specified period.

Failure to comply within the grace period will result in legal penalties, deportation, and blacklisting. Security sources reveal that preparations have been made in all governorates to assist violators in rectifying their status. Expatriates, estimated to exceed 120,000, will benefit from this decision. Last year, 42,000 violators were deported.”
