Is this rules applicable to article 22 for students on dependent visa. what about those children who travelled in the month of June 22, do they need to enter with 6 months from their exit.

What about family visa, when they should come ?

@Prakash Yes, the heading and the actual news is different. However it is clearly understandable that the visa will be cancelled of those all who are outside of Kuwait for more than 6 months and the 6 months are being calculated starting 1 May 2022. Meaning, anyone who is outside of Kuwait since May 1 or earlier and still hold valid Kuwait Visa''s, kindly return back before 1 Nov 2022 to avoid Visa cancellations.
