Kuwait: Penalties to be imposed on expat sponsors of visit visa

The Ministry of Interior is planning to impose penalties on some foreign sponsors because the people they brought into the country on visit visas have not left. As a punishment, these sponsors will not be issued any kinds of visas, including family visas for a period of two years.

A source stated that these procedures are being studied by the Ministry of Interior based on instructions from the First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Lieutenant- General (Retd) Sheikh Ahmed Al-Nawaf. This came after reports were submitted to him by the Residence Affairs Sector, which disclosed that 14,653 expatriates entered on visit visas during the past three years until the first of May 2022 and did not leave.
