More than a million citizens and residents have taken the biometric fingerprints since its implementation on May 12, pointing out that the new system works efficiently and smoothly, and efforts continue to facilitate its work at all border crossings, noting that this new system aims to build a security database for citizens and residents.

The sources emphasized the sustained process of fingerprinting citizens, residents, and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) nationals at dedicated centers from 8 am to 8 pm. Notably, no specific timeframe has been allocated for the completion of biometric fingerprinting, reports Al-Qabas daily.

It was disclosed that the company responsible for executing the project regularly receives security feedback from the General Department of Criminal Evidence, the entity entrusted with fingerprint administration. This iterative approach seeks to refine and optimize the fingerprinting system’s performance.

These endeavors are aligned with the Ministry’s overarching strategy, which focuses on modernizing and automating public services. The intent is to streamline processes for citizens, residents, and GCC nationals, ultimately saving time and effort while elevating operational standards and accomplishments.

The Ministry of Interior, in an official statement, underscored that the biometric fingerprint project significantly contributes to establishing a comprehensive database covering individuals aged 18 years and above who reside in Kuwait.
