Renewal of residence for dependents ( Salary below 450)

I am looking for some advice regarding the residence renewal. My husband is on 18 visa with KD 250 salary cap and he is the sponsor of my son. Now my husband got another job offer from another company where the salary scale is KD 250. My query is, if he changes his job, while renewing my son’s civil ID next year in January 2017, will I face any problems or the same exemption clause is applicable. Kindly advise.

Answer: Your husband will have no problem when you go to renew your son’s residence 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.
