Please, I would like to know what is the minimum salary for dependent family visa. My wife is pregnant and she will give birth in May 2020. I would like to know if my salary of KD 250 is enough for me to get a dependent visa for the child we are expecting. My wife salary is KD 240. Please I am waiting for the kind reply.
Answer: To be able to sponsor someone on dependent visa you should be earning a monthly salary of KD 500 and since your monthly salary is just half of the required amount, we are sorry to say that you can’t sponsor your expected child on dependent visa. This means that you have to make sure that within 60 days of the delivery of the child you have to arrange to send the child out of Kuwait. Alternatively your wife can deliver the baby outside Kuwait and return to the country before the expiry of six months in order that her residence permit will remain valid. How much your wife earning is irrelevant here as the practice of combining the salaries of spouses to meet the minimum salary requirement is no longer practised and with this it only the man’s salary which is taken into consideration.
