Pakistani citizen wants to work in Kuwait

I am a Kuwait born Pakistani citizen and my father served Kuwait Air Force for more than 25 years. We came to Pakistan in 1999 due to higher education of me and my siblings.

Meanwhile, Kuwait imposed visa ban for Pakistanis. Now I’m an engineering graduate and have been working in IT industry for more then three years.

I want to visit Kuwait so I may get a chance to work there. Is there any way that I can get a visa for the aforementioned reason? Your prompt response is awaited and will be highly appreciated.

Answer: The fact that you were born in Kuwait and the fact that your father served in the Kuwait Air Force for more than 25 years mean little or nothing with regard to a Pakistani citizen seeking any form of visa to Kuwait.

The refrain, as we keep pointing out has been that the government says there is no ban but some restrictions on the issuance of visas to Pakistanis.

Under these restrictions visa applicants must go through the security authorities for security clearance. Though, not entirely ruled out, it is very rare for Pakistanis to get this clearance.

In short, we will not be off the mark to hazzard that you will not be able to get a visa to Kuwait
