4,000 non-Kuwaitis to be granted Kuwaiti citizenship before year’s end



The Kuwaiti government is currently preparing a list of names of up to 4,000 non-Kuwaitis to be granted Kuwaiti citizenship, well-informed sources said, noting that the list would be announced sometime before the end of the year.The naturalization process will be made according to a law passed in parliament and stipulates that the government cannot give citizenship to more than 4,000 a year. However, the law does not stipulate that Kuwait must naturalize 4,000 people each year, explained the sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity.-K.T.
