Expats can invite second-degree relatives to Kuwait on visit visas

Expatriates in Kuwait are permitted to bring their second-degree relatives on visit visas, provided the applicant is an engineer, doctor or a professional holding a good job, earning minimum of KD500 per month, according to latest instructions by the Immigration General Department of the Interior Ministry.

The department stipulates that the applicant should not be a national of the six nations, whose citizens are currently banned from entering Kuwait.

According to security sources, expats with minimum salary of KD250 can bring in their first-degree relatives on visit visas, while those earning more than KD500 can bring in their second-degree relatives too, apart from their wife’s family members.

The applicant and the visitors should abide by all regulations pertaining to visits and follow the law of the state, they said.
