Transfer from Visit visa to Family Visa – Child brought to Kuwait before rules were announced

I have a question about the new rules. I am working in Kuwait, wife is also dependent visa and my baby was born in India. I brought my daughter to Kuwait on a visit visa, before the new rules were announced. My salary is only KD 400. Now is it possible to transfer the visit visa to family visa?

Name withheld

Answer: It doesn’t matter that you brought your child to Kuwait before the rules were announced. If you had approached the Immigration Department for the transfer of your baby’s residence to dependent before the rules were announced you would have faced no problems. But now you have to meet the salary condition of KD 450.

But you should still submit an application to the Director General of Immigration because he has the authority to study and if needed approve applications of those expatriates who are earning less than KD 450, especially if both the parents are already in Kuwait or if the baby is born in Kuwait.
