Kuwait com­mit­ted to im­prov­ing il­le­gal res­i­dents’ con­di­tions: Of­fi­cial

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - — KUNA

The Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of Cen­tral Ap­pa­ra­tus for Il­le­gal Res­i­dents’ Af­fairs Saleh Al-Fad­ha­lah has af­firmed Kuwait’s keen­ness on im­prov­ing the liv­ing con­di­tions of il­le­gal fe­male res­i­dents in the coun­try.

Fad­ha­lah made his re­marks in a press state­ment yes­ter­day while meet­ing with Ka­mala Chan­draki­rana, Vice-Pres­i­dent of UN Work­ing Group on Dis­crim­i­na­tion Against Women, and her ac­com­pa­ny­ing del­e­ga­tion at the ap­pa­ra­tus’ head­quar­ters. Fa­cil­i­tat­ing matters and pro­vid­ing ba­sic ser­vices for women of the il­le­gal res­i­dents is part of the priv­i­leges and fa­cil­i­ta­tions in­cluded in the res­o­lu­tion (409/2011) on pro­vid­ing fa­cil­i­ta­tions for il­le­gal res­i­dents in Kuwait, he said.

He also dis­played re­cent statis­tics on the num­ber of fe­male stu­dents of that cat­e­gory en­rolled in pri­mary and higher ed­u­ca­tion, in ad­di­tion to the lat­est job op­por­tu­ni­ties pro­vided for il­le­gal fe­male res­i­dents in the state and pri­vate sec­tors in ac­cor­dance with the ap­pa­ra­tus’ em­ploy­ment pro­ce­dures launched in 2012.

The Kuwaiti law grants the cit­i­zen­ship to the wives of Kuwaiti cit­i­zens, he noted, point­ing out an­other statis­tic on the num­ber of il­le­gal fe­male res­i­dents who mar­ried Kuwaitis and re­ceived the Kuwaiti cit­i­zen­ship even­tu­ally.
