Almighty God''s blessings be on you.
My query is that my wife and my son were to arrive in Kuwait on April 1st. Due to the halt of air travel they had to stay back.
1. My son''s residence could not be renewed on line because there were some dues balance in his medical insurance. We tried to renew residence but they rejected saying to pay insurance and medical insurance kept saying dues paid. Waiting for offices to open the residence expired. Now I have cleared the insurance issue. But another problem arose.
2. My wife''s residence could not be renewed because of validity of passport was less than a year by 7 days. Even she is without residence. The passport is given for renewal.
How do I resolve this problem. Your comments are highly appreciated.

Can anyone please explain me will they be able to travel now or not as their medical process and stamping on the passport has been done in india.

The fun begins now. Those out will remain out. Those in will be stripped bare before being loaded onto amnesty flights back to home country. Kuwait wins, expats lose ! Whatever happens, you can be sure, Kuwait is no longer a place for every tom, dick and harry to come and abuse and misuse and corrupt. Expats will be brought to their knees and shown their real place in a foreign society.

How can the dependent visa for my ward who is eighteen year old and is in India be renewed , as the online renewal requires a valid finger print? Finger print was not taken for last visa renewal as he was less than 18 years of age. Sincerely appreciate your guidance in this regard.
