Name withheld Under Kuwait Labour Law, pregnancy should not form a basis to be dismissed from one’s job or to suffer job insecurity, having said the preceding, we must point out that in spite of the Labour Law not every employer or even employee will want to go by the letter and spirit of the provisions of the law. The realization that functional breaches might at work places has given use to the institution of mechanism to address these breaches when they occur.
Answering your question directly, your company cannot terminate your appointment when you become pregnant, but if they do, you can take them on as the law is on your side. Luckily for your job description is not just limited to the treatments that you give. And hence, in the event of you becoming pregnant you can apply to be put on other schedules that will not require you to handle machines with radio frequency (RF)
Three months means three months, nothing more nothing less. This means that if you begin your notice period on Sept 1, you will work upto Nov 30. Within this period you will continue to enjoy the offdays as usual and these will be counted as part of the notification period.
which is valid upto Sept 14, after Sept 14, I want to extend it by one month, is it possible or not due to the new rule. Please reply me early as possible.
Name withheld Yes, it is true that the duration of all kinds of visit visas has been fixed at one month without the possibility of extension except on medical grounds where a two-week extension can be granted under the old system where you had the 3-month visit visa for your wife, there was no window for extension so just prepare your wife to leave Kuwait on or before September 14 as no extension will be granted.
I wish to go to Kuwait under visit visa as my husband is working there. We already took air ticket for 3 months, but unexpectedly the rule changed that, visit visa will be issued for 1 month only from Aug 5, 2018. I would like to know if there is any chance for cancelling this rule of one month validity? This unexpected change has put us in a depressed state as we expected too much and also booked for the ticket.
Answer: Unfortunately, we are not in position to look at the crystal ball to determine if there is a chance to cancel the rule or maintain it. For now all that we can say is that you respect the rule and if you are still determined to come, then you have to make the necessary adjustments to your bookings.
I would like to know if I can get visit visa for my wife’s mother
My wife is in Kuwait as dependent more than 5 years My salary is 250 My wife mother age is 63 years
We are sorry but you cannot bring your mother in-law on a visit because you need a monthly salary of KD 300 or more to be able to invite someone other than your immediate family (wife and children).
I have read in Arab Times that visit visa in Kuwait cannot be extended after one month. Could you please give a clarification in this?
1. I took visa on July 5, 2018 and my family reached here on July 16, 2018 on visit visa.
2. How long they can stay here in Kuwait?
3. Is it possible to extend after 3 months?
Name withheld To the best of our knowledge, since your family was already in Kuwait before the new rule was introduced we think, they will not be affected by it and hence can stay for 3 months. To be on the safer side, however, we suggest you approach the immigration department in your area to seek more guidance.
On the issue of extending the visa after 3 months this we can say without any equivocation, that this will not happen under current conditions.
