Does Kuwait have more than one class of citizenship (for example, one for descendants of migrant workers born in Kuwait)? [KWT5945]

In addition to the information provided in response 2198 dealing with the subject the Consulate of Kuwait in Ottawa, as communicated to the IRBDC by telephone on 15 June 1990, stated that migrant workers and their descendants (regardless of whether they are born and raised in Kuwait) are not granted citizenship, but have residence permits which are valid as long as the person or head of family has a job and a sponsor.

Regarding the two classes of citizenship explained in the response to information request 2198, the Consulate explained that the "second class citizenship" is not actually considered citizenship, but consists of being recognized as a Kuwaiti without the right to vote.

Additional corroborating information could not be found among the sources currently available to the IRBDC.
