No Extension for Amnesty; Major Security Campaign Scheduled Post-June 17

With the amnesty deadline approaching, authorities have confirmed there will be no extension. A massive security campaign is set to launch after June 17 to apprehend all law violators.

Brigadier General Mazyad Al-Mutairi, Assistant Director General of the General Administration of Residency Affairs, stated in an interview with the local Arabic daily Al-Rai Newspaper that strict actions will be taken against residency law violators and those who shelter them. Comprehensive measures are being prepared to deport these individuals from Kuwait and ban their re-entry.

Following the amnesty deadline, extensive campaigns will be conducted across all governorates and within companies employing illegal workers. Violators will be arrested, fingerprinted, and deported. Investigations will be conducted to determine their employment history and those who sheltered them. Offenders will face a lifetime ban from re-entering Kuwait and the GCC, in accordance with security agreements.

"The time for leniency is over. Violators will be dealt with firmly and severely," Brigadier General Al-Mutairi emphasized. is now on WhatsApp Channel    Follow Channel

Mr. Yunus. This MOI and we have read your comment in this post and we are going to take action. Not!

It is a good decision by the government not to extend amnesty because violators take undue advantage. I urge MoI to visit Indian schools in Abbasia where there are teachers employed without procuring school visa as it’s an additional expense for the schools. Many teachers are house wives and last week two schools closed their primary school because there were checking going on. I want MoI and MoE to levy heavy fines on schools first then their staff for misusing freedom given by our government. It’s is a Haram these schools are doing.
