The Executive Director of Central Apparatus for Illegal Residents' Affairs Saleh Al-Fadhalah has affirmed Kuwait's keenness on improving the living conditions of illegal female residents in the country.
Al-Fadhalah made his remarks in a press statement Monday while meeting with Kamala Chandrakirana, Vice-President of UN Working Group on Discrimination Against Women, and her accompanying delegation at the apparatus' headquarters.
Facilitating matters and providing basic services for women of the illegal residents is part of the privileges and facilitations included in the resolution (409/2011) on providing facilitations for illegal residents in Kuwait, he said.
He also displayed recent statistics on the number of female students of that category enrolled in primary and higher education, in addition to the latest job opportunities provided for illegal female residents in the state and private sectors in accordance with the apparatus' employment procedures launched in 2012.
The Kuwaiti law grants the citizenship to the wives of Kuwaiti citizens, he noted, pointing out another statistic on the number of illegal female residents who married Kuwaitis and received the Kuwaiti citizenship eventually.
