KUWAIT CITY, Dec 17: The number of residency violators among the Syrian community in Kuwait has reached 8,000, reports Arab Times daily. According to a security source, most of these violators had entered the country on family visit visas but have not left the country ever since. Some of them have fines of up to KD 600 registered against them.
Meanwhile, due to several cases of forged passports issued in Damascus, Syria, instructions have been issued to reject such passports at Kuwait International Airport. Airport authorities have denied entry to more than 40 individuals in the past months due to suspicions over their passports and deported them back to the countries they came from so that the issue can be solved and they can enter the country next time.
