Visit Visas only to Families…?

The Ministry of Interior has instructed managers of all immigration departments not to issue visit visas to people other than the wives and children of expatriate applicants and all the previous decisions in this issue are null and void, reports Arabtimes.  Does this means that our parents cannot visit us anymore here in Kuwait? We are 3 siblings here in Kuwait and our parents used to visit us frequently, when I gave birth to our son,  my mother and father came to witness how their first grandchild delivered into this world, they were used of coming here in Kuwait to check our situations in this foreign land. Now, how could we sponsor them if they will plan to visit us again? 😦 Does our parents presence in this country for a short period of time can affect economy, peace and order?


  1. whaaat…?…
    all we can do now is to wait and hopefully they lift up the said decree…
    we’re planning to bring my parent here to take care of my son.. but with this new directive this wouldn’t be carried out anymore.. 😦 😦

    I work for Ministry of Interior. We’ve received instructions not to approve visas for Iraqis, Iranians, Syrians, Afghan, Bangladeshis, Somalis, Egyptians, Pakistanis, Jordanians, Palestinians, Lebanese. But we are instructed to permit Indians, Philipinos and few other nationalities as their track record is good.

    NO, You cannot wait and hope that they lift up the decree cuz it ain’t gonan happen!

    YES, you could gather all your friends and relatives and acquaintances etc and go and protest this to your embassy, and all other expats should do the same. The ambassadors should put some pressure and try to change this.

    If you sit and hope, you won’t achieve anything.

  5. I doubt this new rule would last long.

  6. I hope that what Ahmad Marafie have said was true, thanks i’m quite relieved to read his comment. 🙂

  7. well, that’s too bad if Filipinos are included to this.

    🙂 but it’s just fine for me for i don’t have to visit someone in that place. 🙂

  8. yes.. a friend also informed me last night about this and he mentioned that Filipinos are excluded on this visit visa intruction.. thats good then.. 🙂 thanks for the info Ahmed…

  9. True, knowing Kuwait that law will be changed soon. Rumor is they’re just waiting for the amnesty to be done before they put down another law. They want people who needs to get out, OUT first. Goodluck to us! 🙂
