Kuwait to stop renewing residency permits for expats over 60 years of age

Kuwait to stop renewing residency permits for expats over 60 years of age

From Monday, the Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) will begin implementing the decision to stop renewing residency permits for expats above the age of 60 who hold a secondary degree or below, Al Qabas reported.

The decision will be enforced without any exemptions as the country is keen on addressing the demographic imbalance that has resulted in non-Kuwaitis making up 70 percent of Kuwait’s population.

The source pointed out that although the decision will be strictly implemented, those who are above the age of 60 but hold a university degree will not be required to leave the country as long as they have a family, a valid work permit, or own a commercial business.

In addition, a family member can sponsor his/her parents under the family visa law.
