Attention Expats! ‘No need to amend data on Civil ID with valid stickers’ – Contact embassy if ID lost

Expatriates whose passports have valid residency stickers are not required to amend their data in their civil ID, and they can travel to and from Kuwait, reports Al-Seyassah daily quoting Director General of Public Authority for Civil Information (PACI) Musaed Al-Asousi. In a press release, he explained that a valid civil ID will be deemed as evidence that the residency is valid due to which an expatriate who is not in possession of a valid civil ID and a valid passport will not be allowed to enter or exit Kuwait.

Any expatriate who loses his civil ID abroad has to contact the Embassy of Kuwait in that country in order to obtain a certificate that has details of his residency so that he can return to Kuwait. Once he reaches Kuwait, he has to visit PACI to apply for a new civil ID.
