Question: I am working for a leading private contracting company as an engineer, my salary is KD1,100/- and have been in Kuwait for 5 years. I would like to bring my mother-in-law (age 65) to Kuwait on a dependent visa. My father-in-law has died, my mother-in-law is not having anybody other than my wife, since she is the only daughter, to look after her. My father-in-law’s death certificate and his dependent certificate duly attested by the Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Justice are with me. Now, I would like to bring my mother-in-law and my wife and son together on dependent visas to Kuwait since she doesn’t have anybody to take care of her. Can I get the dependent visa? - Name withheld
Answer: We can’t say definitely ‘yes or no’ because all such applications are decided on a case by case basis by the head of the Immigration Dept in your area. But considering the circumstances, it is likely that you may be able to get the dependent visa.
