The Assistant Undersecretary for Citizenship and Passports Affairs at the Ministry of Interior Major-General Sheikh Mazen Al-Jarrah was quoted as saying expatriates living in the country will now be allowed to sponsor only their wives and children which means dependent visas for parents will be stopped, reports Al-Anba daily.
This is in addition to a new mechanism which will be introduced to streamline family visit visas. The official added, from now on, the duration of a visit visa issued for a wife or child will be limited to three months only while visit visas for relatives will be restricted to just one month.
The official said a visitor must from now on enter Kuwait within one month after the issuance of the visit visa otherwise the visa will be automatically cancelled. This cancels an earlier decision which gave the holder of visit visa three months to enter the country from the date of issuance.
