Medical Treatment Visa For People Older Than 50
Category: Kuwait

People older than 50 years of age can get a new ‘medical treatment visa’ after paying reasonable health insurance, said Director of the Residency Affairs Department at the Ministry of Interior (MoI) Major General Talal Maarafi. Local daily Kuwait Times citing Al Jarida Arabic news paper reported that this is in a bid to control the number of senior visitors who arrive the country to receive medical treatment in public hospitals.

The daily explained that expats would pay KD 20 instead of KD 10 for each residency year. It also added that instead of paying KD 200 for a parent’s residency, expats would pay KD 300 a year. Family visit visa validity was limited to one month except for wives and children, who get three-month visas.

On another concern, Maarafi strongly denied that MoI intends to grant any further grace periods for residency law violators.
