Kuwaiti law does not specify the number of cars that a foreigner is allowed to own in Kuwait, but surveys have pushed towards determining the number of cars a foreigner is allowed to own.
The survey revealed that hundreds of expats own more than 50 cars each; Where they engage in the trade of leasing, selling, and buying, without obtaining a license to do so.
The newspaper quoted sources as saying that the expatriates took advantage of the lack of a specific ceiling for their ownership of vehicles; resulting in "chaos"; It considered that there is an intention to circumvent the law in order to practice buying and selling operations without supervision from the Ministry of Commerce; This is to evade paying the license fees required to practice these operations; Which leads to damage in the state treasury.
The source confirmed that the General Traffic Department intends to control what it described as "chaos", by issuing a decision limiting the ownership of each resident to a specific number of vehicles allowed to be registered in his name.
The newspaper's sources did not reveal the number of cars allowed to be owned by the expatriates.
