If you think only money is life then stay there.
If you consider world is big enough then nothing is too late in life.

I think its high time we change our attitude in how we see things.
Kuwait is changing their laws and policies for their own benefit. They dont need to understand our issues. Having said that we should be thankful for all the support they have given to us till date , whether it be free vaccine or tax free life . The quality of life on a standard of living point of view is really good here apart from the fact that majority of the expats dont have the freedom to enjoy life as and how they can do it in their own country. The real truth is that Kuwait is not the end of the road. It is just one of the countries for a living. Young and healthy people should start thinking of moving out of here and exploring a lot of other places around the world.
We get so comfy in this limited setup that we forgot to actually know what we are missing in life. Also vote for a better Govt back in our homeland so that we could find jobs and peaceful life in the place where no one will ask us to leave. Think beyond religon and politics is what we Indians really need to do.

If the concerned authorities not issuing visit or family visa prostitution will increase. at least their family with them they can enjoy each other and their childrens otherwise it will be vice versa and its bad mark and reputation to the country itself. shame on it.

All above comments are wrong, those who have KD 500 can take visa easily before, now kuwait Government stopped for some reasons, many of the family visit visa holders not yet exit till visa expired and other many of them entered kuwait in Duplicate visa and PCC, and many of them illegal expats are stayed...etc.. so that kuwait remove all the illegals and implement new rules. so dont blame Kuwait Government.
