X-ray for medicals not done due to pregnancy – Will I have problems while traveling?

I am an Indian and have been living in Kuwait for the last 4 years. My wife came to Kuwait in February 2016. At that time she was pregnant — 3 months. While doing medical tests for residency stamping, she was not able to do X-ray due to pregnancy. So the hospital staff made out the health certificate with the condition that after delivering the baby she needs to do X-Ray on 25-10-2016. With the help of that paper I managed to get residence on my wife’s passport, until April 2017. My question is, my wife can travel to India after clearing the X-Ray or do we need to get new residency and only then she can travel??

Answer: Just do the X-ray and if it’s okay you don’t have to do anything else because you already have the residence. The residence of a person is only affected if his health report is not okay.

So, once the X-ray report is found to be okay just travel where ever you want. You will not face any problems nor do you need to get any new residence.
