ANNEXED NOTE

1. Definitions

all charges’ includes ‘residence law violation’

The Interior Minister can issue an order to deport a foreigner in the following cases:
1. If there is a court ruling ordering the deportation of the foreigner after serving a prison sentence (legal deportation).

2. If his/her presence in the country is judged detrimental to public order and security and 3. If he/she does not have an apparent source of income (administrative deportation). The foreigner is then turned over to the Deportation Department, upon decision from the Ministry of Interior.
A deported foreigner will have his dependent family deported with him. Once the deported foreigner leaves the country, he/she is not allowed back to Kuwait, unless the Interior Minister issues amnesty or pardon.
