KUWAIT: “Visitors, in accordance with article 14, who still have some disputes with their sponsors or the companies that invited them, and whose cases are still being discussed at the Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor or in the local courts and who have been given one to three months worth temporary residency visas till they reach settlements are advised not to leave before the settlement,” MOI’s assistant undersecretary for citizenship and passports affairs, Major General Sheikh Faisal Nawaf Al-Sabah said.

He said the departure would lead to cancellation of the temporary residency and such people will not be allowed back into the country except on the basis of new visas. Sheikh Faisal also said that several organizational measures have been taken to straighten out and solve the problems accruing due to visa violations while, at the same time, efforts are on to protect the rights of both expats and sponsors, without any exception.
