Hike Expat Car Registration Fees - MP Suggested
Category: Kuwait Local News

MP Kamel Al-Awadhi will submit a proposal suggesting solutions to resolve the traffic problem by several measures such as increasing the fees expats annually pay for renewal of car registration to match those they pay in their respective countries. Awadhi also suggested imposing special fees on vehicles exceeding the total number of members within any Kuwaiti family as well as not allowing holders of Article 20 residency to register vehicles in their names.

According to Al Rai nes paepr report, Awadhi said this package of proposals would be submitted as urgent suggestions during the coming parliamentary term in a bid to resolve the traffic problems once the new road grid is concluded. “The suggestions include having a different summer timing to redistribute the rush hours when vehicles flock to main roads,” he explained, adding that he would also suggest establishing a special taxi company whose vehicles are parked at special centers and only go out on streets on call.

Daily, quoting him, reported that the car registration fee in Lebanon is $1,000 and that in Egypt is £4,000-5,000.
