KUWAIT CITY, Dec 9: The Ministry of Interior is currently studying the possibility of opening the door for Article 22 visa (family or dependent) applicants by the beginning of 2024, reports Al-Anba daily quoting a reliable source.

The source was quick to clarify though that this will be for certain categories of expatriates only like doctors, university and applied education professors, counselors, and others that will be determined based on several factors.

However, the source did not enumerate the factors. The source told the daily that the ministry will soon form a committee in charge of setting conditions for the expatriate categories that will be allowed to bring their families to the country in line with the demographics strategy being implemented under the leadership and supervision of First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled.
