Kathmandu: Kuwait has initiated an amnesty program to facilitate the return of stranded migrant workers, particularly from Nepal. The program, running until June 17, 2024, aims to help individuals who entered Kuwait illegally or overstayed their visas to return home without facing fines.

It provides an opportunity for those who wish to continue working in Kuwait to regularize their status by paying a fine of 600 Kuwaiti dinars.

The Nepali Embassy in Kuwait is urging its citizens to take advantage of this opportunity to avoid deportation and future travel restrictions.

With over 107,000 Nepali residents in Kuwait, this initiative seeks to ensure the safe return of individuals unlawfully staying in the country without facing penalties or complications.
