'Meta' booking, airline ticket must for visit visa; 150 appointment per day

Thursday, February 8, 2024

1000's of expatriates flock to the residency affairs department on the first day of opening visit visa for families were send back for not booking prior appointment on 'Meta' platform.

As more details came on the first day of accepting visit visa applications from expatriates, sources clarified that prior booking on 'Meta' platform is mandatory and the booking is limited to 150 appointment only per day in each governorate, ie a total of 900 applicants only will be processed in all the goveronarets together.

Another mandatory condition is that the airline tickets for travelling within 1 month of the application date, booked on Kuwait's national carrier, must be included along with the application. For countries to which there are no direct flights by the national carrier, the visitor must book a transit via any country from where the national carrier operates.

The family visit visa is valid for one month and a tourist visit visa is valid for three months. Both are not extendable. There is no age restriction for the visitors. The validity of visa is only one month, ie the visitor must reach Kuwait within a month of getting the visa. Any one violates the stay duration, both the visitor and the sponsor will be blacklisted.

As the airline ticket is mandatory, applicant must ensure that he is eligible with all the required conditions before booking the flight ticket.

The applicant’s salary on his work permit must not be less than KD 400 to bring in first-degree relatives (wife, children, and parents), and not be less than KD 800 to apply for a visit visa for the rest of the relatives.

No decision is taken yet on the visitors from the banned countries and the ban will continue. is now on WhatsApp Channel    Follow Channel

After many years, with such a kind government of Kuwait opening visa doors to all, and seeing such flexible and lenient conditions to apply for visas, now no one can say that the humanitarian factor does not exist in Kuwait.
