Expatriates whose residencies expired on or after Sept 1, 2020, are not eligible to get the grace extension period given till the end of Nov 2020.

Earlier, Kuwait government had given grace period till the end of November for those who couldn't renew their residency from March till the end of August 2020 due to the closure of government offices as part of corona lockdown.
