Visit visa reduced to 30 Days
KUWAIT: The Ministry of Interior’s department of public relations and media security yesterday announced that the residency (Iqama) directorate decided to limit the validity of visit visas to one month. The new rule takes effect as of today (July 14).
According to the new rule, the visit visa will be cancelled if the person fails to enter the country within a month of issue as against the previous rule of three-month period. Similarly, duration of the stay of the visitor has also been restricted to one month in the new rule. However, children and wives of applicants may be granted a three-month visit visa.
---I wonder what all of the companies will do now? When I worked on Arifjan the company would bring employees on visit visas and keep them on it until the sponsor company was able to get them residency. Good news for the employees, every month they will get a paid vacation!
