Visit Visa for wife – Total salary exceeds what is mentioned in work permit

I have been working in Kuwait private sector. My monthly basic salary is KD 190, but I am getting KD 325 so, I am eligible to bring my family through visit visa to my wife, (22 years old). Can I apply for visit visa. If I am not eligible, is there any alternate process to get visit visa like bank statement any other way.

Answer: Unfortunately you cannot invite your wife on a visit visa because to be able to do that you should be earning a monthly salary of not less than KD 250 which must reflect in your work permit and not what appears in your bank account by way of salary transfer.

The other option is that your wife can take advantage to visit Kuwait is through a tourist visa that can only be arranged by a hotel allowed to apply for such visas on behalf of potential clients. We must point out that this option is expensive as upon arrival, your wife has to stay in the hotel at a cost for a specific number of days.
