Civil ID Corrections

Posted by shahim on 6/18/2019 8:39:29 am

dear all, good morning.
yesterday, i visited paci for correction of some details in civil id of my wife.
in the counter, the lady after making necessary corrections and taking my signature, scanned the bar code of envelope and kept the envelope with her. she has not given me any receipt and not told to call paci number to make civil id request.
now my questions are:
1) is it required to call paci to make request for new civil id or once it is ready i will get sms from paci ?
2) how can we view the details which will be printed in civil id, before paying for it; as last week only i paid one time and got erroneous id ?

with thanks and regards...

Visa transfer from 22 to 18

Posted by aneeta john on 6/17/2019 12:09:50 pm

currently, my company is transferring my visa from 22 to 18 and i have been in kuwait for more than 3 years. my company mandoop gave me some documents which has 1 or 2 official papers and both mine and husbands id documents and informed me to tell my husband to go to ministry of interior in ahmadi and apply for no objection to transfer the residence. but when he went to ahmadi governorates office with the forms prepared by my company mandoop they first asked for mandoop and then they told the current forms are wrong and a new application has to be submitted for transfer. when i informed my mandoop about this, he is telling the only husband needs to go for this and he was telling something like "beeber " and only after this step he can transfer my residency to 18.

does anyone has previous experience in transfering wives visa from 22 to 18 or does anyone know what has to be done, where to go? can someone please explain the procedure step by step.

Visit Visa Lost case

Posted by nagarajan mohan on 6/17/2019 7:50:09 am

hi, i would like to share one of my friends experience with you all or who needs on visit visa lost cases.
while entry: my friend wife gone for vacation and return back to kuwait with her father and mother in law on visit visa. ticket was booked in srilankan airlines. unfortunately they lost the visit visas at srilanka airport itself and they don’t know about that. they reached kuwait around 09.30pm and when they came close to the immigration at kuwait airport, they were searching for the visa but not found. later they called my friend and said about what happened and asking what to do? and he sent a photo of visit visa to his wife to show immigration dept. to check wether they will allow it to enter or not. and then they went to immigration officer and explained their problem, however that officer didn''t allow to enter without having original visa and suggested to go back to the origin. then i suggested to them to check with the srilankan airlines peoples saying that did they found any lost visa at srilanka or not. but they said we didn''t get any information like that from srilanka so we can''t help you and he suggested again to go to immigration officer. again they went to another lady officer who was sitting inside a room and ask for help. she strictly told her to send them back as we will not allow it to enter without having original visa. after sometime the crowd standing for immigration become less. later by god''s grace the first met immigration officer called them and secretly told them that do not tell anybody, i will stamp it and send you inside. and he stamped and allowed them to go in. however that lady officer saw them going inside, she stopped and ask for passport looked for stamp. eventhough they dont have original visa the entry was stamped already, so she can''t stop them. she also allow them inside.
