Kuwait set up its DNA database in 2002, with no specific DNA database legislation. There were renewed calls in 2012 for expansion. In 2015, Kuwait adopted a law making it mandatory for all citizens and foreign residents to be on a national DNA database.

The 2008 Interpol survey reports that 393 crime scene DNA profiles and 3,958 individuals' profiles were held in Kuwait at the time of the survey. According to Interpol, Kuwait's DNA database grew to 2,500 crime scene DNA profiles, 12,000 reference DNA profiles from individuals, 33 missing persons' DNA profiles, plus 58 unidentified human remains DNA profiles in 2011.
