Kuwait Extends Deadline for Illegal Expats

Interior Ministry Grants Extension to June 30

The Kuwaiti Interior Ministry has extended the deadline for illegal expatriates in the country to either leave or update their status, following directives from First Deputy Prime Minister and Defence and Interior Minister Fahad Al Yousef.

Original Deadline Extended

The original three-month visa “amnesty” was set to expire on June 17, but has now been pushed back to June 30, providing an additional two weeks for expats to take action.

Ministry’s Statement

The Interior Ministry announced the extension, stating: “According to the directives of His Excellency the First Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Defence and Minister of Interior, Sheikh Fahd Yousef Saud Al Sabah, the deadline for residency law violators has been extended to June 30, 2024.”

Reason for Extension

The extension is attributed to the upcoming Eid Al Adha holiday and the high turnout of expatriate violators of the residency law seeking to either leave the country or rectify their status.


This move allows foreigners in Kuwait without proper residency documents to depart the country without incurring fines.
