KUWAIT CITY, Sept 30:The Ministry of Interior allowed a Danish woman of Arab origin to enter the country after clearing suspicions on the extension of the validity of her daughter’s passport.
In a press statement, the Public Relations and Security Media Department in the ministry explained that based on the video clip, which went viral on various social networking platforms, the woman uttered immoral words — an act punishable by the law.
This happened when the woman and her daughter arrived at Kuwait International Airport where she applied for tourist visa. When the immigration officers checked their documents, it was discovered that the validity of the daughter’s passport is less than six months and the extension was written by hand.
This is against the regulations on issuing a tourist visa, so the officers got suspicious and referred the daughter to the concerned authorities for questioning to ensure the handwritten passport validity is correct. The concerned authorities then referred the mother and daughter for deportation.
It was reported later that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Denmark contacted its Kuwaiti counterpart confirming the extension of the daughter’s passport, resulting in the issuance of tourist visas to the woman and her daughter.
