KUWAIT CITY, Jan 7: The Public Authority for Civil Information (PACI) has denied rumors that new IDs must be issued to expatriates who still have residence stickers on their passports, reports Al-Qabas daily.

In response to the news circulating in this regard, the sources stated “the residence permit is valid as long it is printed on the passport however those who have stamped the residence after the decision was issued to do away with the sticker and have renewed the residence must have the civil ID to enable them to travel.” PACI have warned residents against applying for the civil ID which should be done within 30 days so as not to pay the fines.
