Baby born in Kuwait – Salary below 250; Clubbed salaries of Parents not accepted

I just want to ask for help for the visa for my baby born in Kuwait. I want to get a visa for him but our salary cannot reach the salary bracket. What should I do? Is there any possibility or any hope for me to get a visa for my baby? Can you please help me because last month we filed for a visa but the Immigration Department rejected our application because our salary is less than KD 250. I have read articles there is no salary bracket if the child is born in Kuwait … is this true?

Name withheld

Answer: There was no salary bracket until very recently when the Interior Ministry announced a KD 450 salary cap for this purpose. The ministry has now also said that the salaries of both the parents can’t be clubbed to meet the salary cap. The only thing that you can do now is request the Director General of Immigration to waive the salary cap for you. He has been delegated the authority to do so, but remember it is totally his discretion to reject or accept an application without assigning any reason.
