Minimum salary limit raised to KD 500 for family visa

Interior Ministry has announced that KD500 will be the new minimum salary required to obtain a Family Visa; earlier the minimum salary was set at KD450.

The ministry further clarified that those who have already secured a family visa but do not meet the new salary specification will have to receive special approval from the Director-General of the General Department of Residency Affairs when renewing the residency.

Legal advisors, judges, doctors, pharmacists, financial and economic advisors, and engineers are the handful of professions that are exempt from having to comply with the new salary conditions.
