KUWAIT CITY, Nov 21: According to informed sources, the Ministry of Interior has not yet opened family visas for expatriates, with the exception of some categories such as doctors, as part of the ministry’s plan to reduce the number of violators of the residency law, including those who entered the country under different visa categories and ended up not leaving when these visas expired.

They explained that the Ministry of Interior, based on instructions from the First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled, is determined to end the problem of violators of the residency law through extensive security campaigns carried out by the ministry’s sectors. This is because the Residency Affairs Investigation Sector has been arresting thousands of violators of labor law in all governorates since the beginning of this year. These measures have reduced the number of violators in the country. The sources reiterated that security campaigns are ongoing throughout the country in order to arrest violators of the residency and labor laws, adding that all sectors of the Ministry of Interior are working to control marginal workers and violators of law.
