I am working as an engineer and I meet the salary criteria for sponsoring dependent visa for my wife. I heard from my friends that the validity of the dependent visa has been reduced from 3 months to 1 month. However I couldn’t find any authentic information on this.
Kindly inform me the latest validity period for dependent visa (i.e., 1 month or 3 months). Also, once the medical test is done in our home country (which is India in my case), starting from the date of the medical report, within how many days should we enter into Kuwait. I am desperate to know this as it will help me to plan and make arrangements properly.
Further, after entering Kuwait, within how many days should I complete the remaining formalities such as, finger print, medical, insurance, residency stamping and civil ID. Awaiting your kind response.
Answer: To the best of our knowledge, the validity period for a dependent visa remains 3 months from the date of issue and for a visit visa one month. But to be on the safer side of the law, the validity period is always written at the tail end of the visa and we advise that you check this to make assurance doubly sure. To your second question your wife has sixty days upon entry to complete the remaining formalities to enable her become a legal resident in Kuwait.
