KUWAIT CITY, Feb 18: Kuwait’s Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Defense, and Acting Minister of Interior Sheikh Fahad Al-Yousef affirmed that the decision to reopen tourist, family, and commercial visits was made in response to the trend among most Gulf countries to resume such visits. In a statement to Al-Qabas daily, the minister emphasized that comprehensive laws and regulations have been established to govern these visits.

However, he stated, “Those who abide by these regulations will be welcomed, while those who violate them will face legal repercussions and be subject to punishment by the law.” Minister Fahad Al-Yousef underscored that the Ministry of Interior has implemented various measures and strategies to ensure the proper management of all types of visits under specific conditions, with continued vigilance to enforce regulations and deter violators.

Violators, including both visitors and sponsors, will be flagged by the General Administration of Residency Affairs Investigations, and appropriate legal actions will be taken following the Foreigners’ Residence Law. Explaining the rationale behind the decision, Sheikh Fahad Al-Yousef highlighted the importance of preventing the misuse of visits and ensuring they serve their intended purpose. He noted instances where qualified individuals left the country due to the inability to live without their families, emphasizing that the decision to reopen visits aims to retain such talent and prevent their departure from the country. Moreover, Sheikh Fahad Al- Yousef emphasized the potential economic benefits of opening up to visitors, noting the expansion of airport facilities. He asserted, “There is no reason why we cannot increase the number of visitors to the country within established frameworks, laws, and specific visitation periods. Those who fail to adhere to these regulations will face consequences.”
