The Philippine Embassy announced on 15 January its guidelines for Filipinos working in the country in order to avail of the current amnesty grant of Kuwait. Philippine Consul General Atty. Raul Dado delivered the information to local Filipinos and highlighted the matter on social media sites.
Among the guidelines include the following; to renew passports and apply for travel documents if necessary or for those with expired visas, currently overstaying or with absconding cases, they should settle the usual fines with immigration offices where they reside and inform the offices that they will be availing of the amnesty so they can stay in Kuwait with their new sponsors or they may return to Philippines and return later for work and no ban will be imposed (fines are required by Kuwait law).
Consul General Dado added that the embassy is trying to negotiate to waive imposed fines, but for the meantime, fines are required. Consul General Dado also added that OFWs must see the consular section for instructions prior to payment of fines and should they have inquiries, Filipinos may visit the consular section of the embassy.
