Husbands visa cancelled – Daughter is still having valid residence

My husband’s visa was cancelled on Aug 18, 2016 and my daughter sponsorship is to my husband’s residence as a dependent. Now my daughter is in our native country. We are planning to bring out daughter to Kuwait. I checked the MoI (Ministry of Interior) online service that showed my daughter’s visa is valid up to May 2017. Is it possible for her travel to Kuwait.

Name withheld

Answer: According to the law, the residence of the dependents should be automatically cancelled once the residence of the sponsor is cancelled but sometimes this fact is ignored by the Immigration Department and the affected expatriates continue to travel for years without any problems. So, the decision is yours. You are the ones who have the risk. Your daughter may have no problems … but then could also be turned back by the Kuwait Immigration.
