    I am an Indian citizen & would like to draw your kind attention about leaving Kuwait of my family. My family (wife & infant daughter) with me in family visa but on March 3rd I cancel their visa and after that they got 1 month time to leave Kuwait that was suppose to be before 2nd of April.

    But due to covid 19 issue my family couldn’t leave Kuwait even I booked their air ticket for 17 of March.

    Now in this situation I really don’t understand what I can do now. Their visa expire now on 3rd April.

    If you can advice me on this critical issue it would be great support for me.

    Expecting a positive reply back.

    Thanking you in advance.
