Kuwait to impose travel ban even if debt amount is less than KD5

The travel ban can be imposed on any person even if the amount in dispute is less than KD5, the Minister of Justice, Minister of State for National Assembly Affairs, Dr. Faleh Al-Azab said. The Administration of Judicial Fees has the right to impose travel ban even if the debt amount does not exceed Dh.5.

According to sources at the Ministry, the Minister of Justice has no authority over the Sentences Enforcement Department, which falls within the jurisdiction of the Supreme Judicial Council, and therefore, any order should be made in line with the Public Prosecution and the Attorney General, especially as a judicial ruling is enforceable as it is issued in the name of HH the Amir, irrespective of the amount of money involved.

The sources said that there is a department in the Ministry of Justice, called Department of Judicial Fees, which usually has the right to issue a travel ban on a person after a court ruling. Minister Al-Azab said that he has instructed the Sentences Enforcement Department and the Judicial Fees Department of the Ministry of Justice to prepare a vision to protect the dignity and freedom of nationals and expats, particularly, if the money involved does not exceed Dh.100.

The Ministry of Justice plans to open offices at land ports and call it a priority to facilitate the payment of money due to individuals or the state. During a meeting with Minister of Finance, he said the latter has offered his consent to provide this service at the land ports soon, and the service will facilitate travel of nationals and residents.
