Clarification on Visit visa extension

I have read in Arab Times that visit visa in Kuwait cannot be extended after one month. Could you please give a clarification in this?

1. I took visa on July 5, 2018 and my family reached here on July 16, 2018 on visit visa.

2. How long they can stay here in Kuwait?

3. Is it possible to extend after 3 months?

Name withheld

To the best of our knowledge, since your family was already in Kuwait before the new rule was introduced we think, they will not be affected by it and hence can stay for 3 months. To be on the safer side, however, we suggest you approach the immigration department in your area to seek more guidance. On the issue of extending the visa after 3 months this we can say without any equivocation, that this will not happen under current conditions.
