Plan to replace expats Civil ID card with residence card

Ministry of Interior has developed a comprehensive plan for a project to replace Civil ID card for expats with a special magnetic card. The Civil ID card will be limited to Kuwaiti citizens only.

The special magnetic card for the expats in Kuwait will contain all his/her data which will be used in all state ministries and agencies to deal with it formally and thus end use of Civil ID card.

According to report, a comprehensive study has been done in this regard as many countries in the world issue their residents such cards called Resident Cards which include all data.

The Residence Cards which will be issued by the residency affairs will be linked to the residents presence in the country and when he leaves Kuwait permanently it will be cancelled immediately and will be invalid outside Kuwait as it will not have the same features of Civil ID card.
