Women not allowed to be sponsored by Father once married.

My wife is currently staying in Kuwait on her dad’s residence. Now she is pregnant and I want to transfer her residence to my sponsorship… is it possible with a KD 300 salary on the work permit. Also what about my baby’s residence after the birth.

Answer: You should know that women are not allowed to be sponsored by their fathers as dependents once they are married. They can only be sponsored by their husbands. But now it is going to be very difficult, if not impossible, to sponsor your wife or your child because you don’t meet the salary condition of earning at least KD 450 a month.
