suspension of the extension of passports

The Egyptian Consul General in the State of Kuwait, Ambassador Hisham Asran, announced that it had been decided to stop extending Egyptian passports, based on the instructions of the Egyptian authorities.

 
Ambassador Asran clarified that the law prohibits extending passports except for travel to Egypt only, and this is an exception that does not exceed 6 months, provided that its validity expires, while any extension otherwise is prohibited.
 
A number of members of the Egyptian community in the country had demanded to extend their passports so that they could renew residency in the country after the expiration of their passports, but the new instructions from the Egyptian authorities stopped the previously applied exception to extend these passports during the Corona crisis.
