I would like to get some details on procedure for babies born in Kuwait … if the father is working in the Ministry of Social Affairs & Labor with shoun (work permit) residence but salary only KD 220.
Can he get dependent residence for his newborn baby … the mother is in Kuwait on a khadim (domestic) visa.
Answer: You will not be able to sponsor your child in Kuwait because all children born through marriage of an expatriate on a work permit (Article 18) and another on a domestics visa (Article 20) can’t be sponsored as dependents.
According to the law you will be required to take the child out of Kuwait (with the permission of the Immigration Department ) within 60 days of its birth. In case you fail to do so, you will face legal action plus possibly deportation if you try to keep the baby illegally in the country.
