What is the change? Kuwaiti authorities will no longer issue residency permit stickers but instead will issue Civil ID Cards.
What does the change mean? Residents with stickers issued before March 10 may use the sticker and their passport to prove residence status. Those applying for a Civil ID Card should ensure that the first and last name on the ID matches their passport.
Analysis & Comments: While residency stickers issued before March 10 will still be usable (until their expiration) with a valid passport, employees are advised to use Civil ID cards when entering and exiting Kuwait. Expatriates who have been issued Civil ID cards must exit and re-enter Kuwait carrying both their passport and their Civil ID card.
