My daughter was born here in Kuwait, she obtained a residence permit under my sponsorship. My wife and I are working here in Kuwait. We have decided to send our daughter to our home country and let her visa expire, then we bring her back here in Kuwait through visit visa. Is there any way I can make a residence permit for her again? My current salary is KD 300 and my wife’s salary is KD 250. Please advice me, thank you.
Answer: If you send your daughter back to your home country and her residence expires while she is outside, it means you will have to meet the current conditions prevailing to be able to sponsor your daughter again on a dependent visa.
The current condition is that you have to earn a salary of not less than KD 450 to be able to sponsor a family member on dependent visa.
Since your salary is KD 300 and you cannot couple your salary with your wife’s to attain the magical figure, you will not be able to sponsor your daughter again on a dependent visa if she goes back to your home country.
