Kuwait to begin online renewal of expat residencies from January 2019

The Interior Ministry in Kuwait plans to begin online renewal of expat residency permits from January 2019.

As per local media reports, a trial for renewal of residencies for domestic helps who are under sponsorship of nationals, would begin on September 2018.

The IT department of the interior ministry has finalized the program which involves filling up a form online, with documents to be uploaded and an undertaking to be signed.

As per the report, the link has already been established with various ministries like social affairs and labour ministry, health ministry and forensics and residency affairs departments.

Payment would be either automatic or would have to be made when printing the residence on the passport.

This project is expected to save time and effort, as it would help by easing the burden on expats, particularly as most of them are employees and have other obligations.
