Wife on family visa, Salary below KD 450 – Can we get dependent visa for new born?

First of all I thank you sincerely for your legal services and clarification. I kindly request you to clarify my below question briefly.

My wife has a valid iqama (family visa) until April 2017 and our baby is to be born in India by end of this month and my salary is below KD 450.

Is it possible for me to get visa for my baby as me and my wife are having valid iqama here but I’m not familiar about this new law as each and every person quoting different law and don’t know what to do.

So please explain me it will be much helpful for me in this time and will be very thankful for you and your team.

Answer: If your wife’s visa is under your sponsorship, then you will have no problem in getting a dependent visa for the baby if she/ he finally arrives. If your wife is however still under the sponsorship of her father we are afraid you will not be in a position to sponsor the child because your current salary does not qualify you to do so. We must also point out that under Kuwait law, it is not permitted for a married woman to still be under the sponsorship of her father.
