MoI urged to utilise amnesty scheme; intensive security check after June 17

The Ministry of Interior reminded expatriates who violated the Residency Law to utilise the ongoing amnesty period to leave the country or legalize their status. In a tweet, MoI said that the Ministry will intensify its campaign against the Residency Law violators once the deadline ends, indicating it will pursue those who violated the law and then deport them.

Earlier, Kuwait had announced amnesty period which will end on June 17th.

Violators can amend their status through legal frameworks within the deadline of June 17 in order to avoid being pursued by security personnel.

After the deadline, Ministry will intensify the search and anyone caught will be deported and will not be allowed to re-enter the country. is now on WhatsApp Channel    Follow Channel

There is a complete lack of clarity regarding the amnesty declared by the Kuwaiti government. I have been fighting an absconding case filed against me by my former employer for over a year. The delay is partly due to my incompetent lawyer and partly due to the inefficiencies of the system. How does the Kuwaiti government expect me and my family to survive in a place like Kuwait without employment? I suggest that the Ministry of Justice establish fast-track courts to handle cases and deliver judgments within 60 days, particularly in labor-related issues, as most of the affected individuals are expatriates. I have approached numerous government institutions to inquire about availing the amnesty, but I have not received much assistance. Unfortunately, because I have an ongoing case, I am unable to benefit from the amnesty, even though the case is fabricated.
