Residency violators in Kuwait have been granted a 30-day period starting today to leave without paying fines or airfare, with the possibility of returning to the country later.

Authorities are expecting around 200,000 residency violators across the country to take advantage of this amnesty scheme. 11 centers are setup to accommodate the people who wish to take advantage of this amnesty.
