KUWAIT CITY, Oct 29: Three months following a domestic worker’s departure from the country, sponsors will have the option to terminate the worker’s residency (under Article 20) using the “Sahel” application. This service in the app is scheduled to become available on November 5, 2023.

In cases where the sponsor does not initiate the cancellation process, the domestic worker’s residency will automatically be revoked after a period of 6 months from their departure.

This development comes as a result of direct directives from His Excellency the First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah.

To simplify the process for citizens, the Residency Affairs Sector has announced that, starting from November 5, 2023, individuals can either utilize the “Sahel” application or visit one of the Residency Affairs departments to request the cancellation of a domestic worker’s residency, without the previous mandatory 6-month waiting period.
