The passport expires, the visa will be considered expired by law!

Maari ka palang magbayad ng 300 kd or makulong ng 3 months kung sakaling passport mo ay expired na tapos nakadikit parin ang visa mo duon kailangan pala bago ka mag renew ng visa make sure na hnd etoh maabotan ng expiration ng passport mo.

According to Acting Director General of Residency Affairs Department at the Interior Ministry Maj Gen Talal Maarafi The validity of expatriates’ visas in Kuwait is conditional to the validity of their passports, the visa will be considered expired by law. Falling into such a situation may result in punishments mentioned in Article 24 of the foreigners’ residency law The punishment may reach a maximum of three months in jail and a minimum fine of KD 300 -he said ”

“It has been noticed that some expatriates who renew or extend their passports after they expire fail to register the new data with the Residency Affairs Department,” Maarafi said. “This subjects them to paying fines for violating the law.” The official urged expats to abide by the law and renew their passports in time before they expire, then update their data with the Residency Affairs Department. – KUNA
