KUWAIT CITY: Ministry of Interior prevented some expatriates from leaving the country because the information recorded in their passports do not match that in the ministry’s system.
Director-General of Kuwait Airport Security Major General Walid Al-Saleh said airport security officers discovered that the data recorded in some passports of expatriates, either on the main page or in the residence page, differ from the data stored in the database of Ministry of Interior, which was why those expatriates were prevented from leaving the country.
Al-Saleh stressed that expatriates, in such cases, are required to check with the General Department for Residency Affairs to amend their data so that they can travel.
