The Philippine Embassy in Kuwait on Friday appealed to all Filipinos who are undocumented and facing absconding cases to go back home by availing the Kuwait government’s ongoing amnesty program.
In a statement, Philippine Consul General to Kuwait Mohd. Noordin Pendosinan Lomondoy said the month-long amnesty, which started on April 1, was announced by the government in an effort to control the spread of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

“I hope that Filipinos with expired residence visas and absconding cases will take advantage of the amnesty program of the Kuwaiti government, similar to how more than 5,000 of our kababayan availed themselves of amnesty in 2018,” Lomondot said.
Chargé d’Affaires, a.i. and Vice Consul Charleson Hermosura said that Filipinos granted with amnesty will be allowed to leave Kuwait without paying any penalty or fine, and will be given the chance to return to Kuwait anytime.
“I wish to commend the government of Kuwait, particularly the Ministry of Interior or the MOI, for coming up with a well thought out amnesty program wherein the amnesty grantees will be given temporary shelter, with food and medical provisions, and one-way Kuwait Airways tickets to the Philippines—all at the Kuwaiti government’s expense,” Hermosura said.
Undocumented Filipinos and those with absconding cases are encouraged to go to the following processing centers of the MOI from 1 to 5 April 2020, between 8:00 AM and 2:00 PM: Farwaniya Primary School For Girls for female amnesty applicants, and the neighboring Al Muthanna Primary School For Boys for male amnesty applicants.
