Visa for children sponsored by Mother

I am a female who got a job in Kuwait as a teacher beginning in September 2016. I have 2 children, ages 9 and 3, and want to bring them with me as well. I am a university graduate and my salary will be KD 650 per month. I am not yet in Kuwait. Can I take my children? If so, what is the procedure?

Answer: Unfortunately, you will not be able to sponsor your children as dependents because only the father is allowed to sponsor the children in Kuwait.

Several years ago, the Ministry of Interior had passed a decision allowing female teachers to sponsor their children only to clarify a few days later that this privilege was only for female teachers in government schools.

So, your children will not be able to accompany you although you will be able to get them to Kuwait occasionally on visit visas.
