Large number of expatriates facing the heat while renewing their residency as the Ministry of Health cancels the contract with the health insurance company. Number of expatriates reported that they are unable to take Health Insurance before applying for residency renewal as the Health Insurance is no more available. Last week MoH had cancelled the contract with the health insurance company.

Meanwhile, today local newspaper Arab Times reported that the Interior Ministry has given instructions to directors of Residence Affairs Departments in the six governorates to grant temporary residence permit of one month only to the expatriates who apply for renewal of their residence permit.

However, expatriates with the temporary residency permit may not be able to leave the country before putting permanent residency as once they left the country with temporary residency their residency became expired and won’t be able to return back to Kuwait. Local newspaper reported that MoH is expected to signs a new contract with another health insurance company very soon.
