UK Visa


I’m getting all the Visas for my new passport so the first one on the list is the UK Visa. It was at an application area which is in a building to the right of the Central Bank of Kuwait opposite Al Seef Palace. The parking lot is always full so I parked in area where I wouldn’t get in people’s way, and its hard to not see something that big.

What You Need:

  • 6 month Bank Statement
  • Picture With White Background
  • Fill out the form

If you don’t have your 6 month bank statement there is place next door that can print it for you but for 5 KD, which is insane, so make sure to have your 6 month bank statement.


Once you sit with a person who asks you a few questions, she told me an interesting fact. I was applying for the 10 year visa, but you can’t apply for a 10 year visa unless you have had a 5 year Visa, so then the Embassy would decide what you could get. They took the finger prints of all 10 of my fingers, first the right four, then the left four, and then both my thumbs.

They give you a serial number, and phone number to call in between 3:00 and 4:00 pm, if the passport is done pick up is from 4:00 to 5:30 pm. It takes two to three working days, and they are very systematic in their process and really organized.
