I am working for a well-known private sector company and earning a salary of KD 250 while my basic salary is KD 175. My father will be retiring in 2 years, and I would like to know that being their son whether I can sponsor both of my parents.
Answer: The answer to this question is very simple if we take a close look at the statement, made in July last year, by the Interior Ministry’s Assistant Secretary for Citizenship and Passport Affairs Major General Sheikh Mazen Al-Jarrah.
In this statement, Al-Jarrah very clearly stressed that expatriates would from that month onwards be able to get dependent visas for their wives and children ONLY and that such visas for parents would be stopped.
So, it is very clear that you will not be able to sponsor either of your parents and they will have to return to your home country.
