Procedure for Arabic name change if it does not match passport for civil ID issuance

Posted by cyclone465 on 4/23/2019 7:01:34 pm

i am writing this to highlight the procedure required to correct the name in the civil id if the arabic name is wrong in the system.

i went through a month of hell to figure this out and hopefully can help others avoid having to go through similar troubles.

when i applied for online renewal of civil id after renewing residency, i got a message saying arabic name does not match name on passport and to visit paci with my passport.

here''s what to do when this happens:
-dont''t go to paci first, instead you need a certificate from your embassy confirming your name on passport. get that from your embassy and head off to paci.
-in paci, they will issue you a paper and tell you to do fingerprints on it, go to the fingerprint office (locations varies based on where you live) and register your prints. they will ask you to return in one week.
-now you need to change the name from moi (jawazat/passport office) for it to be changed in the system at paci - paci will write the name that is in the system, and only moi can change that.
-before going to moi, you need to get the embassy certificate attested from ministry of foreign affairs and put 5kd stamp on it.
-in moi passport office, you will go to an officer (i went to computer section but was asked to go to officer for arabic name correction) who will ask you for the attested embassy certificate and then you will print an application for name correction. he will stamp it.
-next, go back to fingerprint office and get the the moi application stamped. they will ask to wait one week and return to moi (jawazat). once you go back they will change the name in the system and give you a print out. confirm the name in both arabic and english for any mistakes.
-finally, the paper from paci needs stamps from fingerprint office to saying there are no judgements/executions on you.
-then you take the moi print out and paci issued paper with stamps (3 or 4 stamps) and go to paci to apply for new id.

companies need employees to accomplish their projects on time.

employees want to make/earn good income to afford good life to their families.

mediators who sells visas they want to earn some think out of it in hiring each candidate from overseas. service charges has to be paid…. you can see many advertisement with note sc applicable, how could one can do this? who are these people to sell the visas of the employment?

jobseekers has to be ready with the good amount of investment for their jobs in gulf, especially in kuwait service charge of visa to be paid to the mediators who are working within the company or outside the company damaging the name and fame of the companies in kuwait…..

think about it and be alert soon you will caught!!!

requesting all manpower agencies to stop paying single penny to the mediators which they are spoiling the kuwait market for the sake of kuwaitis demanding.

requesting the authorities to take serious action on these people who sells the employment visas.
