Kuwait has modified the regulations for dependent visas for expatriates
The Ministry of Interior in Kuwait has announced significant revisions to the application procedure for dependent visas. This decision follows the directives of Sheikh Fahd Al Yousef, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Defense.
According to the updated regulations, expatriates seeking to bring their families to Kuwait will now encounter more stringent criteria. The revised policy stipulates a minimum salary threshold of 800 Kuwaiti dinars for eligibility. Furthermore, applicants must possess a university degree, and their employment in Kuwait must align with their academic qualifications.
These adjustments are part of an initiative to streamline the issuance process for dependent visas, ensuring that expatriates applying for family visas meet specific criteria. Additionally, the changes aim to regulate the expatriate community in Kuwait, with a focus on attracting and retaining highly skilled and educated professionals.
