My question: I have arrived in Kuwait on a resident visa from my home country. Are the original police report and medical exam reports that were validated in the Kuwait embassy in my home country required to finish the process of obtaining my iqama in Kuwait? Everything I have read says no, that I need to get fingerprints and medical exams here, with those and some additional paperwork obtained here and photographs, I can go through the process. Only the gentleman in my company now says I need the original police criminal record, and maybe, the medical records too, which they didn't tell me to bring before arrival, so I didnt. Did you find you needed these? Any advice would be much appreciated... Cheers Larry

Hi Yes, every single papers you have done in your country is needed here. Good luck
gmnq8 replied on November 07, 2014 with:
Yes, you will need the original, authenticated police clearance check and the medical testing results, also authenticated by the Kuwait embassy in your home country. In addition to that, you'll still need to take a second medical test here, AND have your fingerprints taken for the required checks.

Hi Kelly I saw that you've replied to my post. I have a 5 yrs old boy, diagnosed with ADHD, he is very hyperactive and high functioning, and I am already in trouble with his school due to behavioral issues. Bottom line I need a good ABA therapist who can work with him . I have visited ABC Kuwait as they seem to be the only center in Kuwait that provides ABA but there is no way I can afford to pay 1450 KD amonth! I am looking for someone with a reasonable fee. If you can help or recommend any one please contact me. Thank you noha_mohammed@hotmail.com

In addition, the seat is Safe Seat Engineered and meets or exceeds all applicable US safety Standards. It has all of the great features of our top rated TurboBooster® -- like hide-away cup holders and grow with me features like the height adjustable headrest and armrests, but this seat has been enhanced to provide superior side impact protection in highback mode. What is Safety Surround™ Side Impact Protection? As you may or may not be aware, the United States currently does not have a standard for side impact testing. Because of this, we searched the globe to find a standard we at Graco believe to be the most comprehensive -- and so we decided on the European draft standard. We have taken our seats with Safety Surround™ Side Impact Technology to Europe and tested against their draft standard to ensure that we have the best side impact protection -- a side impact protection that truly grows with your child across the entire weight range of the seat. Specifications Weight: 9 lbs Dimensions: 26.5H x 16.5W x 15D" Care and Maintenance Machine-washable seat cushion.

gmnq8 replied to the thread Police Certificate, disqualifying offences on the Kuwait forum:
forgemonkey initially posted:
I was asked to apply for a position in Kuwait with the oil company. I will be doing senior management for a very specialized field. I was looking through all the document requirements and was reading the police clearance requirements. I have yet to see anything that actually goes into details, they just say "must submit a clearance document". I have a criminal mischief charge from back in college in 1987. It was a deferred probation sentence with the charges eventually being dismissed. I have requested my FBI report to see how this is actually listed there. Does any "blemish" bar you from gaining a visa, or do they look at length of time, nature of offence, etc? Does anyone here have any direct experience dealing with this? Thanks,
gmnq8 replied most recently with:
The only problem you will have with the PCC (Police Clearance Check) is if you have any criminal convictions (theft, robbery, or worse), or if you have any DUI/DWI convictions. There won't be any problem if all you have is a criminal mischief charge from 27 years ago.

Can anyone clarify the laws on detaining a child from moving up a year in a private school in Kuwait? Or if they have moved up, can the school change its mind in the beginning of the following academic year and retain that child back to the prior year group.?
