Director General of General Department for Residency Affairs Major General Abdullah Al-Hajri issued a circular to all residency affairs departments in all governorates to declare that all types of visit visa — dependent, commercial and tourist — will be valid for one month only and cannot be extended with effect from Aug 5.

This is loss for expats because many planning to go for summer school vacations for 2 months but now govern gives only one month only visit visa... It will make burden to all expats... Allah kareem

Please understand this.. when visit visa is given, it clearly states that the visitor should enter the country within one month. So if visa was granted on 20th July, the visitor has to enter before 20th August. and so on.
The second part of the visa and what this article is about is.. that after a visitor enters Kuwait, they can ONLY STAY FOR ONE MONTH. No extension will be given to extend the stay after staying in Kuwait for one month.
So anyone on visit visa, already in Kuwait for one month and then going to immigration to extend that visa for another 2 months will not be entertained.
