Residents can now book online to complete their bio-metric scan before travel

Citizens and residents can now book an appointment through the Ministry of Interior’s website to complete their bio-metric scan procedures if they wish to do it before traveling.

The General Department of Criminal Evidence allocated four centers across the country in Jahra, Ali Sabah Al-Salem, Farwaniya and West Mishref areas for citizen and residents to complete the bio-metric scan before their travel. These centers will be open daily for 24 hours. New centers will be opened soon at different locations, sources said.

However, all the travelers will be allowed to leave the country without completing the bio-metric procedures, as currently it is limited to arrival passengers only.

Thank you for your inputs. I have tried registering and I get a message civil ID already registered !!!! while I have not. Then I logged using the civil ID and pressed forgot password. Message came - password sent to email registered. NO EMAIL received !!! what to do??? any advise??

For those asking about being locked out or forgotten password, on the first page itself, click on Forgot password without entering your Civil ID number. It will then open a screen to reset your password..
If that doesn''t work, just send them an email at the email address provided. They answer by next day and are quite good.
In any case tho, all appointments at all 4 sites booked till 2nd June.

Its say 24 Hours but system only allows for appointments from 8.00 AM to 8 p.m.

I am a resident of Kuwait with Indian passport, I haven’t done my new biometrics. Can I travel to different country for vacation and enter Kuwait again and get my biometric done on arrival in Kuwait?
