Kuwait has approximately in total 3.5 million population, consisting of only 1.2 million Kuwait citizens with the remaining being foreign workers. Those foreign workers of Kuwait live in an unjustified position in which they are not subject to dispute about. They can never become Kuwaiti citizen or permanent residents, regardless of birthplace and how long they have resided there. Living in the Country or being born in the country, Foreigners in Kuwait are stripped of the honor to be Kuwaiti citizens. There are foreigners who are born in Kuwait and know of no other country to belong to, can never be considered Kuwaiti citizens. For foreigners born in Kuwait, there is no document or legal right that has been created for these individuals without a passport that defines his or her nationality which rather unjust to these long-term residents. Kuwait should grant foreigners a way to achieve citizenship with all rights and responsibilities of a Kuwaiti citizen. Kuwait should create a secured pathway for these foreigners to permanent residence for the long-term guest workers. The foreign workers consist of: Egyptians, Palestinians, Pakistanis, Filipinos, Bangladeshis, and Sri Lankan. Other foreigners come from the Europeans, North Americans and Northeast Asians but are much more different than the foreigners that live in Kuwait since they typically do not reside in Kuwait for long periods of time. The foreign populations migrate and become a major part of Kuwait’s working force.
