Wife pregnant want to get mother-in- law on visit visa

Thanks for answering readers questions on various legal aspects.

My question: my wife is pregnant and in Kuwait. She has been recommended bed rest by the doctors. Can I bring my mother or motherin- law to look after my wife until the delivery. Both are over 50 years … is it possible that I can get a 3-month visit visa. Are there any salary restrictions because my current salary is KD 200.

Answer: No, we are sorry that you will not be able to get a visit visa for any of your relatives because your salary is not enough.

You should be earning at least KD 250 to apply for a visit visa. The only option you have is to apply to the director of the Immigration Department in your area to allow you to call one of your relatives on compassionate grounds. He has the power to waive the requirements, although he rarely accepts such applications.
