Visa for Pakistani Family – No ban only “restrictions”

I am a Pakistani and I want to bring my family to Kuwait. I am working with a consultant company and my salary is KD 640. Will I be able to bring my family to Kuwait. Do you have any idea whether the Kuwait government plans to lift ban on family visas for Pakistanis.

Answer: You face a real tough task because there a lot of “restrictions” on the issuance of any kind of visas for Pakistanis.

This amounts to a sort of “semi-ban” although the Kuwait government says there is no such ban … only “restrictions”.

These restrictions involve getting security clearance from the State Security after getting an NOC (No Objection Certificate) from a senior official (Assistant Undersecretary) of the Ministry of Interior.

In a few words, the security clearance is almost never granted and you will most likely not be able to get a visa for your wife.

But having said that we believe that there is no harm in submitting an application … you might be lucky.
