Clubbing of salaries to sponsor child is not permitted

Me and my wife are working here in Kuwait. We are both on Visa 18. We have a baby who was born in Kuwait. Later I sent the baby to my home country. Then after two years we brought the baby to Kuwait on a visit visa. Now the baby is with us here in Kuwait. My salary is KD 290 and my wife salary is also KD 290. Can we get Iqama for our baby?

Name withheld

Answer: No, you cannot sponsor your baby on dependent visa because your salary is below the KD 450 monthly salary required; you and your wife cannot combine your salaries to attain the magical figure.
