During the amnesty period, illegal residents can leave the country without penalty or punishment. Later they can return to the country on another visa. Those who wish to remain in Kuwait can validate their residency permit by paying a fine. This decision will benefit 1.2 lakh violators. Those who have the documents can directly approach the Immigration Department to complete the process. Or if there are no documents, you have to collect the outpass from the embassies of the respective country and reach the Immigration Department.
