Quoted from Arabtimes – I have a question about the new rules? How do these affect a new born baby? Is there a minimum salary? Even if we are both here in Kuwait?
Answer: If your wife is already on a dependent visa, you will face no problems in getting the residence for your baby because here the salary cap of KD 450 will not be considered. But if both the husband and wife are working, there might be a problem as this issue has still not been cleared.
Earlier, it had been announced — and was being implemented — that as long as both the husband and wife were in the country and the baby was born here, their salaries would not even be considered in the issuance of visas for the baby.
But recently a senior official categorically said that it didn’t matter if the couple was working … the husband must have a salary of at least KD 450. He also stressed that their salaries could also not be clubbed to reach the KD 450 figure.
