Medical Visa for Parents

I would like to know about the eligibility and procedure for applying for a Medical Treatment Visa for parents who are older than 50 years. And if the visa is granted what will be the duration of their stay in Kuwait?

Name withheld
Answer: Basically there are only three types of visas in Kuwait — visit visa, work permit and dependent visa. There are no medical treatment visas in the country.

We would like to point out that Kuwait is not a medical tourism destination. In fact, thousands of Kuwaitis and other Kuwait residents travel to other medical tourism destinations and are reported to spend over a billion dollars every year at those destinations.

So, you can’t get a visa for parents for medical treatment.

In fact Kuwait discourages expatriates bringing their parents into the country for medical treatment and has already fixed a lot of charges for various health facilities in case visitors need any treatment in the country.
