Answer: If your wife is already with you in Kuwait on dependent visa, you will have no problem in getting a visa for child. Note that the KD 450 salary cap does not have retroactive effect but only applies to new applicants who want to sponsor their families on dependent visas.

I am living in Kuwait with my family. I am the sponsor for family. I am getting KD 400 (Work Permit) and my 3-month baby came with visit visa. I want to transfer to family visa is it possible to transfer visit visa to family visa?

Answer: Since your family is already here in Kuwait under your sponsorship, you will have no difficulty in converting your baby’s visa to a family visa. We must however clarify that under current Kuwait laws, visit visas cannot be converted to dependent visas except for infants (two years and under).
