Sahel App can be into English version if you have an Android phone. Just go to your phone settings and in the Language please choose Australian English and it will get converted to English from Arabic. It worked for me.

I think there should be more biometric centres to enhance or enable the residents to do their fingerprints.

can check the biometric status on anyone''s installed sahel app with civil id number.

Hello, is it mandatory for kids too?

Monday, April 1, 2024

There is no option to convert to English language inside the Sahel app. However you can go to your mobile language settings and opt for English (India) and then open the app and you will see the text in English language.
I have done it and it works.

thanks for the useful article. i have been searching for this for a long time. though sahel app is not available in english, i navigated with the help of the above article and got confirmation of what i wanted (i did my biometric around 6 months ago)...

Sunday, March 31, 2024
These sahel app is of no use as appointments are rare to get. Kuwait must open more counters to update finger print / biometric for residents and families otherwise deadline of Jun''24 will not met so easily

Sunday, March 31, 2024
Why there is no English. Most of the people don''t know Arabic.
