Assistant Undersecretary for Citizenship and Passport Affairs Major General Sheikh Mazen Al-Jarrah indicated that the Ministry of Interior is considering the possibility of issuing special civil IDs to individuals whose Kuwaiti citizenships were revoked.
In a press statement, he said the ministry is contemplating this step in order to allow these individuals to modify their legal status in the country and to ease their movements, medical treatments and studies. Major General Sheikh Mazen explained that the sector has prepared a study to determine the number of such individuals and their children who would benefit from these special civil IDs, as they currently hold expired civil IDs using which they are unable to complete their transactions in the various state institutions. In another development, a governmental source affirmed that the government has no intention to naturalize any individual except under very narrow conditions based on the higher interest of the country.
He indicated that the government is also planning to review all the laws related to naturalization of the children of Kuwaiti women and non- Kuwaiti men. The source stressed that the security system is working efficiently to maintain the stability and security of citizens and expatriates, revealing that instructions from top leadership have been received to retain top qualified security officials with ability and efficiency in field work.
He urged the executive and legislative authorities to bolster cooperation for pushing the wheel of economy and national projects in the country forward in order to improve its stability particularly under the current critical situation of the region.
