Transferring of family visit visa to dependent visa

I have one question: My family (wife & 1-year-old daughter) are on visit Visa; if I want to transfer them to family visa is it possible? My salary is KD 450.

Name withheld

Answer: Unfortunately you cannot transfer your wife’s Visit Visa to a family Visa since this practice has long been jettisoned. With regard to your one-year-old daughter such a transfer could have been possible if your wife was already on a family Visa. In any case your salary qualifies you to apply for a family visa for both your wife and daughter so don’t hesitate to apply for the visas after they return to your home country.
