Iqama renewal to go online

KUWAIT: The interior ministry is planning to launch online residency renewals next month, starting with expats holding article 18 residency permits, whose number is over three million.

The move allows the renewal of an expat’s residency and that of his wife, children and maids online without the need to go to residency departments.

Sources said with the support of the economic committee at the Council of Ministers, the electric link between the interior ministry, manpower authority, civil information and health ministry is complete. The new system will provide expats several online services, most notably residency renewal, while another service will be introduced later to issue visit visas for parents, spouses and children online. – Al-Qabas
