Kuwait deports 10,000 residency violators

A total of 10,000 residency violators have been deported from Kuwait following raids across the country, according to Kuwait Times.

The mass deportations were done in the last three months, according to Kuwait’s Ministry of Interior. The crackdown was part of Kuwait’s moves to deal with unskilled workers and visa traders, and targeted masseurs, fishermen, farmers and scrap workers.

Authorities said that 3,000 residency violators were arrested last month alone, with 600 of those arrested working in construction and farming.

Kuwaiti authorities also cracked down on agencies illegally selling visas for more than KD2,000 (Dh23,977), stressing that the fake companies have been shut down. ICA/Expat Media
