Emergency travel without Civil ID

Friend of mine from Philippines newly came to Kuwait on 10th Dec 2019 with 18 # work visa. At present his work permit and residency is done and envelop for Civil id just submitted. But unfortunately due to emergency issue he wants to travel to Philippines. How can he travel on an emergency without civil id.. can you please help us with a solution at the earliest…

Answer: With the new system in place, residency stickers are no longer placed in the passport and hence information about your residency status is captured in your civil ID card which you must produce together with your passport when exitting or entering Kuwait. In short you can’t exit Kuwait without your civil ID so this means you just have to be patient for your ID to be completed before you can travel and this will even depend on your company giving you the goahead to travel.
