Procedure for Civil ID renewal

Renewing Residence
After the initial residence has expired it can be renewed, provided the expatriate intends to continue under the same sponsor. Renewal is a fairly simple matter. Applications are made at the jawazaat in Shuwaikh and the process should be started a month before the expiry of the current residence.
Medical tests are not required on renewal. However the employee’s work permit must first be renewed with the Ministry of Social Affairs & Labour. The application for renewal must be supported by:

  • the employee’s passport and a copy of it,
  • the renewed work permit, and
  • a copy of the sponsor’s signature as required for business purposes.

Normally the sponsor or his official ‘mandoub’ will attend at the jawazaat to renew the employee’s iqama. Where the employee does so himself, he must have a letter from his sponsor authorising him to do so.

Application for Visa for New Born in Kuwait

New Born Baby
When a baby is born to expatriates in Kuwait, the parents must obtain a dependent’s iqama for the child. There is no minimum salary requirement and the father of child born in Kuwait can sponsor his infant’s residence irrespective of his salary level.
But first the parents must obtain a birth certificate for the child. The hospital where the child was born will provide a notification of the birth. This must be taken to the registry of births in the governorate in which the birth took place to obtain the official birth certificate. The hospital will provide the address. The additional documents required to obtain the birth certificate include: application form duly comp-leted, photocopies of parents’ passport and civil IDs, and authenticated marr-iage contract. The birth certificate is usu-ally ready to be picked up at the registry after about a week. The fee is KD10.
When the notification is being submitted at the registry, the parents will be asked to write down the proposed first name of the child. For expatriates who do not speak Arabic the name will be written phonetically in Arabic.
To obtain residence the baby’s name must first be added to the parent’s passport or a separate passport must be obtained for the infant. To obtain a passport for the child, different emba-ssies have different rules, but most non-Arabic embassies require a certified translation of the child’s birth certificate while some require the birth certificate to be authenticated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Kuwait.
Once a passport has been procured or the child has been added to one of its parent’s passport, the procedures for obtaining the child’s residence are the same as for any dependent. An infant born in Kuwait however is not required to undergo medical tests and fingerprinting. The documents required include the originals and copies of the father’s passport, the civil IDs of both parents, marriage certificate, work permit and letter of employment indicating salary. The application for the infant’s residence must be made within 60 days of the birth to avoid a fine of KD 200.
Where the father works in the private sector, the administrative fee for the new-born infant is KD100 in the first year for the first and second child, and KD200 in the first year for the third and subsequent children. But if the father works in the public sector, there is no charge in the first year for the first three children, while the charge for each subsequent child is KD100 in the first year. The actual residence fee is KD10 a year. Source:

    1. natry nyo po bang mag tanong sa ating embahada?
      para po sakin siguro mas maganda kung may kasulatan po kayong pinanghahawakan. kasi madaling sabihin ng sponsor nyo na takas kayo pag nahuli ulit para wala syang pananagutan sa inyo.
      dapat kinuhaan na kayo ng sponsor nyo ng civil id as soon as nong bumalik kayo sa kanya.

  18. I am working here for a couole of years. When i first came here my papers were processed under my ex husband’s family name.

    1. I am not sure about sa shuon paper kung bakit kailangan pa. Pero since nabanggit mo na kailangan dapat hingi ka ng copy ulit. wala namang problema ang paghingi ng copy. worst scenario e papakuhain ka muna ng police report para mabigyan ka ulit ng shuon paper

    1. Pagawa po kayo ng police report na nawala ung civil id nyo. ang pagkakaalam ko po ay kailangan din po eto pagnagpagawa kayo ng bagong civil id.

  37. Within howmany days I have 2collect the new civil ID from PACI box? My new civil ID is ready from last Tuesday, but I couldn’t go yet 2 collect. Is there any penalty for it? 

  38. rick. sir,madam how can i renew my civil id its al ready expire on june.19-2012  couse my new company told that need to renew it. which department can i go, and its posible sir that i pay for the pinalty.

    1. awag ka AFTER 2pm sa 1889988. since arabic yan, press 2, then 1, again press 1. pag tinangap ang request mo, well and good. but since nag-iisue sila ng bagong civil id card, baka kailangan mo ng bagong application.
      ang application form mabibili sa mga cooperative or jamiya for 250fils. fill up mo yan, pa check sa ministry clinic for blood grouping, attach copy ng passport at iqama plus 2 pics with blue background at submit mo in PERSON sa paci offices sa south surra. that takes 4 days. pag hinulog mo sa dropbox sa paci, it takes 3 weeks maximum.
      may 30 DAYS ka pa from date of iqama stamping para ma renew ang civil id.
      alternative is may english link dyan, click on card renewal, again, AFTER 2PM.
