Renewal of residence of Children

I am seeking legal advise regarding the renewal of residence for dependent visa. There is a new law now that dependent visa should be based on KD 450 salary. How about those who had already had the visa before the announcement of the decision. Currently my salary is KD 320 and my children residence will expire in 2017. Should I face any issue to proceed for the renewal?

Answer: You will not face any problem while renewing your children’s visa as while announcing the KD 450 salary cap. The minister clearly said that the decision would not affect those expatriates who were already in the country before the decision was announced nor would it affect those expatriates whose residencies are to be renewed. So make sure your residence is valid before stamping your children’s residence.
