KUWAIT CITY, April 29: The Philippine Embassy in Kuwait issued an advisory on April 28, 2020 calling on all undocumented Filipinos in Kuwait who have travel bans due to unpaid bills from telecommunication companies to pay their debts at the amnesty processing centre in Farwaniya as the amnesty program for residence violators ends on April 30, 2020.
