Wife sponsoring husband on dependent visa

This post has been read 8671 times!

I have been on an Article 18 visa since 2010 in Kuwait. I’m a woman, recently married to a Filipino guy who is living in my country. I would like to ask if I can get a visit visa or dependent visa to bring him to Kuwait to live with me. My mother and brother are already in Kuwait, so I want him to be here also. My current salary on my work permit is KD 260/ month. Will they allow woman to bring her husband on a dependent visa? What is the salary bracket in this connection?

Answer: According to the Kuwait law, wives are not allowed to sponsor their husbands on dependent visas so the only thing you can do is get him to Kuwait – for a very short while – on a visit visa.

You won’t face any problems in getting the visit visa as long as you have a rental agreement which shows that you have your own place to live plus a work permit which shows you earning at least KD 250.

It doesn’t matter what you are earning. What matters is the figure mentioned on the work permit.
