I would like to be clear on the criteria and minimum salary required to acquire dependant visa for my spouse. The salary I receive from my company is KD 454 per month but in my work permit they have mentioned my basic salary as KD 401. I have read in some circulars there are few categories of workers who are exempt form this minimum wage of KD 450, so in connection to this will the Kuwait ministry approve my dependant visa application as my designation is engineer in my iqama.
Answer: Unfortunately, your monthly salary of KD 401 does not qualify you to sponsor your spouse on dependent visa. Indeed, if there was something like exemption for engineers with regard to the minimum monthly salary requirement, which we are sure there isn’t, you would have had to apply for such an exemption. The Ministry will under no circumstance give you an exemption just because you are an engineer without an application to that effect.
