    i am at present in kuwait . for the last 4 years. i came in 2012 in a company and i had a civil id number. and then i resigned from my company and came back in another company in another civil id number. i had a telephonic bill pending during my last visa. now when i checked the travel ban with my old civil id number, it s showing that i have a ban. but my new civil id number does not show any ban. in the MOI sit also when i enter my new civil id number, there is no ban.

    so what should i do to confirm that i dont have a travel ban?

    • Khurram Shahzad

      Ok it seems that you’re ban on Old civil Id and having no ban on new civil Id…Which means that you old civil id is now deceased and it is no more functional..It seems fine how much long you being here in Kuwait on New ID?

        Hello Khurram,

        i was working in kuwait for nearly 2 1/2 years. i landed there on a working visa in december 2011. i resigned from the company but did not cancel my visa, and came back to india in october 2014. when i was in kuwait i had a pending mobile bill. recently i have got an offer from a kuwait based company and intend to come back to kuwait. i have my old civil id and when i recently checked, there was a travel ban on the civil id. i have a new passport also as the old one expired last year.

        the company in kuwait is very keen to call me to kuwait and they have requested my documents for the same.

        what kind of problems may i face in going to kuwait? and kindly help in how to overcome it.

        thank you.

        • Good day mr Khurram
