The Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry on Thursday urged holders of diplomatic passports to hurry and obtain e-passports to avoid travel difficulties after the Interior Ministry announced old ones would be invalid as of July 1.
The ministry noted in a statement that holders of valid diplomatic and special passports will be allowed to enter Kuwait, as a direct destination. Kuwaitis holding regular invalid passports will have to seek help at the country’s embassies to have travel documents to return home.
Assistant Foreign Minister for Protocols Ambassador Dhari Al-Ajran said the foreign ministry notified the concerned world authorities, through the Kuwaiti diplomatic missions abroad, that the old Kuwaiti passports would be rendered invalid as of July 1.
