Dear Ali. Thanks for the update. I have few questions as below, kindly answer.

1. For parents visit visa: Are they issuing visit visa for parents aged 70 years? What is the cut off date and year beyond which jawazat will not issue visit visa? e.g. do parents born on 01 Jan 1950 and later or parents born before 01 Jan 1950 qualify to get visit visa??

2. Copy of birth certificate (Arabic translation): Whose birth certificate is required? If parents birth certificate, I doubt as most of the parents have no birth certificate by now. What to do in this situation?

Posted On 11/11/2017 3:31:34 AM by Ali

1. Before 3 days I got my mother visit visa ( 65 yr old) ..70 yr old ,better u try once.

2. Of-course Sponsor Birth certificate only.
they will check only your parent's name in your birth certificate.

Posted On 11/11/2017 3:56:52 AM by Birth Certificate

Thank you Ali for guiding us. Could you answer the below too?
Should the birth certificate be attested before submitting to MOFA?
My birth certificate is not attested like my marriage certificate.

Thanks Ali.

I want to call my mother-in-law. I will be her sponsor. My wife is on co. visa but her salary not enough to sponsor her mother. In this case whose birth certificate will be required. Mine or my wife?

Posted On 11/11/2017 7:45:28 AM by PSR

1.I don't understand the logic of confirming the parents name by birth certificate when it is clearly mentioned in sponsor's passport,

2.If the sponsor's birth certificate is not available what is alternative solution?

3.What is the procedure to avail birth certificate who born in a remote village before 40 yrs when there was no proper birth registration system and migrated to city,

Can any one advise pls?

Thank you Ali for the post:

Could you answer the below?
1) The birth certificate & marriage certificate must be attested before submitting to MOFA?

2) Translated certificate must be attested from Ministry (White building opposite to MOFA) or directly go to MOFA after translation.?

Thank you once again.

Posted On 11/12/2017 3:27:17 AM by abdulla abdulla

Posted On 11/12/2017 3:34:25 AM by SD

which attestation is required on birth certifcate before its transilate to arabaic (befor MOFA) ?

Posted On 11/12/2017 9:09:41 PM by naqsh nadeem

If MOFA has stopped accepting Affidavits issued from Indian Embassy then what is the new procedure for Driving license?? Can anyone explain the new procedure?

Posted On 11/13/2017 7:55:38 AM by Karuna Karan

Ali, I want to bring my Mother-in-Law and Father-in-Law for a month. I went today morning to MOFA (Shuwaikh, no more handled in City) and they told me that I need to bring my Wife's Original Birth Certificate (not in English). My question is, if I translate it here in Kuwait, do I need to attest the translated Certificate? if yes, can I do this in Kuwait or I need to send to Mumbai for attestation? just like degree certificates..

Posted On 11/13/2017 8:48:00 AM by ALi

Karuna Karan
yes translate here and attested from Indian embassy then go MOFA... if they accept then ok , otherwise you have to attest also from ministery of Justice.. for more details please contact any typewriter in mirqab ..

Posted On 11/14/2017 9:42:17 AM by Karuna Karan

Ali, I went again today to get clear information from MOFA. They told me I need to get the Birth Certificate attested from Kuwait Embassy in India, just like the way we do our degree certificate attestation. They dont respect any affidavit/attestation from Indian embassy in Kuwait anymore. This is a long process in India...

Posted On 11/14/2017 10:16:20 AM by RD X

if we donot have birth certificate what are the alternatives ?

Posted On 11/14/2017 11:01:30 AM by RD X

if father and mother both names are there in the passport still they need birth certificate ?

Posted On 11/14/2017 8:46:16 PM by Tosh .

Yes they need birth certificate, even if you have a valid passport, because they dont know if you are born or not, and their embassy in India should attest it because they are tracking how many people are born in India

Posted On 11/14/2017 9:22:36 PM by Indian Friend

What is the value of Indian Embassy in Kuwait....

Our Embassy must look into this issue and resolve it.

For family visit and dependent it is ok, for parent and in law visa it is not only difficult but impossible...

All the best guys...

Posted On 11/15/2017 9:54:04 AM by Karuna Karan

I asked the Kuwaiti in the MOFA counter, the parents name are there in the passport then why are you asking for Birth Certificate, the answer is I can't put MOFA stamp/seal in the passport. Ok, thats why I have the relationship affidavit for my embassy.

Well MOFA dont respect this affidavit anymore. And I'm sure Indian embassy in Kuwait has no clue about this, if they know then they would have told me this Affidavit (7KD) is useless.

You know, nationals like Egyptians don't have to go through this procedure, they can directly get visit visa for wife/parents. This discrimination is for selected nationalities. Because we Indians are crooks according to them. Our embassy/PM should do more than conducting Yoga classes.

@ Karuna Karan . I agree with u brother.

At-least Indian embassy would tell us that no need relation affidavit for visit visa anymore. but they do not want to lose 7kd....

Any idea how and where to get your birth certificate attested from India?

Posted On 11/21/2017 12:46:30 AM by Darshan Nanda

Hi Ali,
Thanks for the above post. It was very useful.
I am planning to get my parents and in-laws from India for short trip to Kuwait. I have already got my birth certificate translated. Today i went to MOFA (Shuwaikh), they are asking me to get mine and my wife's birth certificates attested from India and Kuwait embassy in India. The same problem which Mr. Karuna Karan mentioned in above post. I am really confused now. Should i get it attested from Indian embassy and ministry of justice in Kuwait? will it work? Bcos getting it attested from India will take lot of time.
Mr. Karuna Karan did you attested your copy from Indian embassy in Kuwait? if yes then did MOFA accepted your certificate.

Hello Ali,

URGENT HELP Plsssssssss.

Can you please advise me on the process for getting VISIT VISA for my son & daughter. Yes......... my wife will also be accompanying them. I have attested & stamped (by MOFA - Q8) marriage certificate (So getting Visit visa for wife will be in process as detailed by you).
I also have Municipal Corp issued birth certificate of my son & daughter........ though these are NOT attested by MEA - India or Q8 Embassy in India. In their passport pages (copies off which I have here with me) name of my wife (their mother) & mine is there.
What is the process pls ?
You could advise me on this matter "one to one" if you care to .... mail me at
[email protected] ASAP plsssssss......... i want to bring them all here before Christmas.

Tnx rgds
Allah Khaiyr.

Posted On 11/21/2017 2:49:13 AM by ALi

dear brother...
for your family( wife, kids) is the same process.
visa application forms from any typing center and go to MOFA.
they will ask your Marriage Certificate & Birth certificate only.
Best of luck and Happy Christmas in advance. ,

Posted On 11/22/2017 1:06:29 AM by AAAAAAA

Thanks Ali for your quick response. Just a doubt
Is it necessary to get Home Ministry of State, MEA (India) & Kuwait Embassy (in India) attestation done before getting the Birth Certificate of my children here for further processing -- translation & MoFA attestation. Or can I go with their passport copies & Birth Certificate issued by Municipal Corp, direct to Jawahazzat with the visa applic form ?

Again let me remind you that my marriage certificate has all the requisite stamps & is already translated to Arabic also. The doubt is ONLY regarding children's birth certificates.

thnx & rgds

Posted On 11/22/2017 1:28:11 AM by ALi

They will ask Your birth certificate only.

NO NEED child Birth certificate .

I had gone to the Liberation Tower MOFA office yesterday. I was asked to go to the MOFA shuwaikh during morning hours. On going to MOFA the counter did not accept the affidavit.
I had affidavit made for my my sister-in-law (wife's sister) and her family for them to come to short visit. The person at counter asked me to get following originals
1. My wife's birth certificate
2. Sister-in-law's birth certificate
3. Sister-in-law's marriage certificate
4.Sister-in-law's son's birth certificate
It is so crazy to listen to such absurdity from them. I understand from the way it is going I think relatives are not welcome.
It was sad to see people being returned who wanted to get their parents, kids etc for want of originals.
The worst part is that the Indian Embassy is not informing us or helping us with these issues. The funny part is some people have been able to get their relationship affidavit stamped too. So sometimes it will depend on your luck too as to who is at the counter.
If these kind of big changes happen there should be a notice in front of the Indian Embassy advising us accordingly.

Dear Friends,

PLEASE TAKE THIS MATTER TO MRS.SUSMA SWARAJ ( EXTERNAL MINISTER ) ON TWITTER.
