Residency permit holders outside of Kuwait who were not able to renew their documents amid the pandemic will not be allowed to return unless they obtain a new visa, an official said as reported by Kuwait Times.

Kuwait’s Residency Affairs Director said around 40,000 residency permits were not renewed.

The interior ministry had extended absence permits for expats stranded overseas because of the coronavirus but had valid residency permits.

The country is preparing a law that would amend fees related to residency and other types of visas.
