My wife and child are on visit visa valid till 18-Oct-2017 Shall I apply for extension of Visit Visa? To apply for extension before how many days I need to approach immigration dept for extension Please advise.

Answer: Visit visa for immediate family (wife and children) members has a 3-month validity period which starts from the day of entry. This 3-month stay in Kuwait cannot be extended after expiry. If you do your calculation and Oct 18, 2017 falls within the 3-month validity, this means you cannot apply for extension. If however the calculation shows that your wife and child still have one or two months to stay on Kuwait then you can apply for the extension a day or two before Oct 18.
