Kuwaiti Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah declared a 45 day amnesty that took effect on September 1 and will end on October 15 this year. The 45 day grace period will allow the illegal expat to legalize their stay or leave the country without paying a fine.
Residents who had come to the country on a visit visa but did not have a residency permit can report to any border exit and leave the country and the ones who have lost their passports and got new ones can report to the immigration authorities with two photos to process their departure.
Foreigners with a travel ban, as a result of absence from work, are also allowed to leave the country through any exit but those with court records must report to the prosecution to settle their cases.
Foreigners with a travel ban, imposed by the investigation authorities for unsettled felony cases or offences, should meet the required terms and apply for residency during the set period or face deportation.
