No more visa sticker on passport

new visa rule

According to the news, the Ministry of Interior will start to implement the new residency regulation, which will replace the residency visa stickers on the passport by expatriates’ civil ID cards.

Expats will only need their civil id to move in and out of Kuwait. The ID, with smart card chip features all details regarding the bearer, including judicial records, date of residency expiration, etc.

The renewal and payment of the ID cards can be processed online.

No more taking of passports

This is a great step forward to prevent future employers and/or agencies to take their employees passport.

Something that’s unclear

It is not clear for me on how is this new regulation going to be implemented. Here are some of my questions:

  1. What are we going to show to the Philippine immigration officer if we are traveling to Kuwait? Our civil ID? if so,
  2. We need to fix the English translation of our names to match the names on our passport. (I know some people who’s English names are spelled wrong or their middle name has become their first name)
  3. If I don’t have my ID with me, can I show my passport, if in case I need to show it to an officer?

  3. Hello po jdc ask ko lang po,nakatravel ban po kasi ako ngayonsan ko po pwede malaman kung sino nag file sakin ng travel ban? At makakaapekto po ba to sa new work ko laloy na itratransfer po yung visa ko after two weeks?pa advice naman po

    1. Dapat po ata sa justice nyo po ito icheck para malaman kung sino at ano ang rason ng travel ban. Hindi ko po sigurado kung makakaapekto sa pagtransfer ng visa ung travel ban. sa tingin ko po depende sa kung ano ung kaso bakit may travel ban.

    2. Kabayan just saying this baka may unpaid kng bills sa postpaid sim card mo or credit sa ibang company.un lng kc pwdeng mgbgay ng travel ban syo.
