KUWAIT CITY, April 2: The Ministry of Interior has urged people to book appointments in advance through the “Meta” platform on the unified government application for electronic services “Sahel” before visiting designated biometric fingerprinting centers. The Public Relations and Security Media Department of the Ministry of Interior emphasized that “no references will be received without a prior appointment.” In a press statement, the Ministry highlighted that the plan devised by the General Department of Forensic Evidence for appointment periods is sufficient for all, ensuring appointments are scheduled before the specified period ends.

Addressing concerns about overcrowding at fingerprint centers, the Ministry clarified that any incidents were promptly addressed, attributing crowding to the presence of a large number of individuals without prior appointments. The Ministry previously announced a three-month deadline, running from March 1, 2024, to June 1, 2024, for biometric fingerprints for all citizens and residents. It emphasized that failure to comply with this requirement would result in the suspension of all related transactions. Fingerprinting services are available at all border crossings, Kuwait International Airport, and designated centers across the country.
