The new system, he said, aims to streamline the processing of passports.

The Syrian charge d’affaires said the embassy is actively extending the validity of current passports wherever feasible. Additionally, they are developing tailored solutions for specific cases to facilitate the community members until the new system is fully implemented.

Furthermore, he clarified that the embassy issues identification papers for newborns valid for 6 months, which are recognized and accepted by the Kuwaiti authorities. This measure ensures compliance with residency regulations for newborns until they are provided with a new passport.

In an effort to serve the community, the embassy has thus far distributed approximately 7,200 passports out of the 8,200 delayed passports and called on those concerned to visit the embassy to collect their passports.
