New rules set for visit visa; KD 500 salary must

Thursday, January 10, 2019

The interior ministry’s residency affairs directorate announced new regulations for issuing various types of visit visas.

As per the new regulations, expatriates can apply for visit visas for their parents provided their monthly salaries are not less than KD 500. The concerned authorities have the right to determine the duration of their visit – either family visa for a duration of 30 days or tourist visa for a duration of 90 days – based on the sponsors’ profession and circumstances, and the purpose of the visit.

Regarding visa for siblings, expatriates can apply for family visit visa for them for a duration of only 30 days. There is no extension of duration for all types of visit visas.

Every country set a rule and its available on their official website and this will be same at least for few years. In Kuwait every morning new rules. Why can''t they fix a rule and keep it for at least an year and publish in the website and follow the rules.This is very strange changing it daily. This is affecting the reputation of the country.
