Is the new rule for having a visa for new born baby which requires the father to earn a minimum monthly salary of KD 450 already being implemented?
My husband iznil amal salary is only KD 150, but his actual salary is KD 235. For me my iznil amal salary is KD 200, but my actual salary is KD 250.
Can we process the visa of my son? He was born last June 26, 2017. In case we can’t make a visa what are the consequences. And how much our penalty. I hope you can help us to process his visa even just for one year. Thank you
Answer: The KD 450 monthly salary rule has been in force for some time now. How much you earn monthly is of no relevance to the issue. What matters is how much your husband earns in a month. From the f igures you gave, your husband falls far below the minimum salary required to sponsor the baby which should have been done within sixty days after the baby’s birth. As things stand now, the baby’s stay in Kuwait is now illegal as the sixty-day time frame has elapsed.
In order not to prolong the illegal stay of the child in Kuwait, we advise that you take immediate steps to send him out of Kuwait or risk paying a heavy penalty for being on the wrong side of the law. The Legal Clinic is only a forum to offer advice but we have nothing to do in processing visas.
