Any Kuwaiti except for students, businessmen and patients who remain outside the country for a period of 6 consecutive months shall be referred for investigation upon arrival to know the cause of the lengthy stay outside the country.

Sources said the earlier investigations in similar cases have revealed that a number of persons who had stayed outside the country for several months, had either joined the extremist organizations or were involved in ‘unhealthy activities’ and were subsequently referred to the State Security apparatus for investigations.
