Kuwaiti authorities are considering to increase fees charged for some services offered by sectors of expatriates’ affairs and traffic, Al anba has reported.
The move comes due to low fees on some services being provided by the ministry and offering other services for free, according to the report.
Kuwaiti First Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Ahmed Al Nawaf will be presented with a related memorandum and he will make a decision soon.
The memorandum does not include specific fee increases, but if the principle is approved, proposals will be made later.
Asked if fees on visit visas will be increased, the well informed source did not disclose expected hikes. "This will not be an anomaly as several countries have done this,” the source said. “Consequently, it is most likely to be applied in Kuwait too,” the source added.
