MoI to replace curfew waiving cards with barcodes

Sunday, March 29, 2020

The Interior Ministry announced Sunday that Wednesday will be last day for accepting the recently issued cards for moving during curfew time for eligible people, a move aimed at preventing misuse.

Instead, the ministry will use a digital barcode system to grant waivers to those meeting the conditions, it clarified in a press statement.

It stated that a barcode will be sent to mobile phones of the eligible people to use during the curfew time as of Thursday.

The ministry said the move aims to stop rigging and misuse of the permits.

On March 21, the Kuwaiti government imposed an indefinite curfew from 5:00 p.m. until 4:00 a.m. as part of the efforts to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19).

It has also warned that anyone caught breaching the curfew will be jailed for up to three years and fined KD 10,000 in pursuant to Civil Defense Law.
