hello editor, please remove this extra added statement from you side as "Those who are already in the family visa and not meeting this condition, have to get special approval from the director-General of the General Department." - - - -.
actually in KUWAIT TIMES clearly mentioned as "The decision added the director general of residency affairs can exempt those already in Kuwait or born here from the salary condition"
so it means those who already here for them it will not affect.

i FEEL THEY CHANGE THE FAMILY VISAS CAP SOMETIME KD 250 SOMETIMES 450 AND SOMETIMES 500 OR ABOVE. IS REALLY NOT APPRECIATED. PLS KEEP ONE RULE THERE ARE SO MANY NOW ENTERED ON FAMILY VISAS AT THE CAP OF KD 450 WILL HAVE TO TAKE SPECIAL PERMISSION . ATLEST ALLOWED TO STAY WHO CAME BEFORE AND NOW IF YOU RAISED THE CAP TO KD 500 SHOULD BE APPLICABLE TO NEWCOMERS NOT TO THE PEOPLES WHO ENTERED BEFORE THIS NEW LAW IS IMPLEMENTED.

Those people who are staying with their family before this rule, They have to get special approval from the director-General of the General Department of Residency Affairs while renewing the residency. Some family Visa’s who issued with 450 KD before this rule those people need not to worry……

I am really sad after hearing this news. I already applied for family visa just a month back based on my work permit (450 KD) and I got an entry visa for my family . They right now at Kuwait and just now finished medical and finger print and waiting for its result. Could any one tell me whether it is possible to get a family visa in this situation. Some people told me that it is not applicable for me for this year and it will applicable only at the time of renewal. I already invested lot of money for flat and furniture. Please reply me if some one know the real thing which I can do now.

I don''t think this will effect people already in Kuwait, my friend''s salary is 350KD from long time and he is stamping residence for this family every year. In my view this may be problem for new family visa but still there is option for special approval.
