Over 2 lakh cards ready for collection; PACI urges public to collect Civil ID card

Over 2 lakh Civil ID cards are ready for collection at PACI self service machines, which hinders the issuance of new cards. According to report, the number of cards ready for delivery in the PACI devices at its headquarters and its two branches in Al-Jahra and Al-Ahmadi is estimated at 211,000 cards whose owners did not come forward to receive them.

The sources pointed out that the accumulation of cards in the devices hinders work to speed up the issuance of new cards. Currently the authority are giving preference to citizens and residence under Article 20 and children under 5 years for issuing cards, while other cards are getting ready as per the capacity of the smart devices that are installed.

PACI, on Monday, called on citizens and residents to collect their cards, which are ready in the self-service machines, at the earliest without delay. is now on WhatsApp Channel    Follow Channel

@RC. Do you have to click anywhere on Kuwait Mobile ID app? You said you got message that civil id is ready? where and how exactly? Please explain

We do get a message on our Kuwait Mobile ID app if the civil ID is ready. I got my civil ID yesterday after 1 year. I had to update my photo. People who are waiting for more than 1 year should call PACI and check if there is any issue. In my case, I updated my latest photo and the next day I got my civil ID

Now a days, people are using their mobile ID to do their transactions. Some are even not collecting / taking physical civil Id. So, PACI should start same system as Traffic department using for DL printing. It will save on vending machine cost and time spent for printing and waiting time.

my card is "Civil ID card is still being processed" for almost 2 years. Has anyone come across the same situation and what to do to get it?

Send message on mobile to collect.
Instead of public checking every day card ready or not ready.
You collect 5kd. give some service.
