Expats celebrating sporting wins on Kuwait’s streets face deportation for obstructing traffic or committing ‘immoral conduct’, the General Directorate of Media and Relations at the Kuwaiti Interior Ministry has warned.

The ministry pledged it would take all the necessary legal procedures against offenders, including deportation. The statement added that Kuwait's traffic law stipulates that “No vehicle shall participate in a private processions or gatherings in accordance with the legal provisions signed by the General Directorate of traffic. As such, it is not permitted to disturb others, especially at night.”

The media directorate appealed to people who were new to Kuwait to cooperate with the rules, so authorities could perform their duties ‘protecting lives and property’. They added they were confident expats would continue to respect the regulations.
