KUWAIT CITY, March 31: The Ministry of Interior is about to initiate procedures for renewing residency for expats holding Article 19 through the General Administration of Residency Affairs. Article 19 residency permits an expat to hold residence as an investor or foreign partner in a commercial or industrial activity provided the share of the expat partner in the company is not less than 100,000 dinars according to the conditions laid by the Ministry of Commerce.
This procedure comes in the time when services of expats who are above 60 yrs of age and who hold high school diploma and below their residence are not being renewed and have to leave for their homelands except those who will be shifting their residence to family residence or self sponsorship.
The sources stated that transfer of residence Article 18 or 17 to Article 22 is subject to scrutiny by the residence department. On other hand Kuwaitis and expats praised the smooth and easy work flow at Mubarak Al Kabeer residence affairs, reports Al Anba. Only those who had prior appointments were allowed on the premises to process their transactions in a disciplined manner which takes only a few minutes to complete any transaction for companies or individuals.
