Kuwait to Require DNA Testing for Everyone

A new DNA testing law will go into effect later this year in Kuwait. It is aimed at creating an integrated security database and reportedly does not include genealogical implications and should not affect personal freedoms and privacy. Senior officials told Kuwait Times that the law, the first of its kind in the world, will only be used for criminal security purposes. When the law (no. 78/2015) is applied, it will be binding on all citizens, expatriates and visitors too.
