An announcement has been made by the Kuwaiti government, which means that expatriates who marry men from Kuwait will need to get approval from a special committee in order to live in the country.
Further to this the measure has been backdated to include anyone who married after January 1st 2010, with the interior minister refusing to stamp resident permits for such wives as a matter of course.
Security sources said: "These couples now need the approval of the committee set up by interior minister Sheikh Ahmad Al- Humood and which includes representatives from the interior, foreign and justice ministries and the National Security Agency."
Those married before 2010 will not be affected, but for more recently wed couples the decision of the committee will be communicated directly to immigration authorities.
It is thought that the move is a reaction to the increasingly high level of Kuwaiti men marrying expats, which is considered to have a damaging effect on local women trying to find a husband.
