Kuwait – How – to – apply for a civil id renewal if you lose it.

What you need – a copy of your passport, pictures(just in case), shoon, your company’s registration. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need a police report to apply for the id if you lose it. However, I think it’s prudent to report it as lost just in case. (you can do this by going to any police station for your governate area, EARLY in the morning and fill out a report with the cop)

Go to the civil id office early in the morning again.  Get your ticket.

Once you are at the counter inside, tell the person that you have lost your id.  He/she will scan your passport for you and ask you to pay KD 10 for the new card. You also have an option to pay an extra kd to receive a new temporary sheet of paper that serves as your civil Id. ( I suggest that you get this because it takes 60 days to get a new civil id card. Also, this  sheet of paper shows when your civil id will be ready next).

When you go onto the PACI website after around 60 days, it will show you whether your card is ready or not.

When you pick up your civil id, it’s the same process. However,  you don’t have to pay KD 2 this time.
