Residence for baby delivered in Kuwait – Salary below KD 450

I am working for a private sector company. My salary is KD 350. My wife is on my dependent visa. We are expecting a baby in December to be delivered here in Kuwait. What rules will apply for my baby to get residence. I am worried if the new KD 450 rule is applied, I will not get visa for my baby. Kindly advise.

Answer: You have a slight problem because the KD 450 rule is being applied but we are hopeful that you will get a dependents residence for your child as the head of the Immigration Department is taking a lenient view in cases like yours— when both the parents are already in Kuwait and the mother is already here on dependent’s residence.
