Get to know with Aspire – Document Legalisation for Kuwaiti visa

Below is a summary of the documents you require legalising in order to apply for a Visa for Kuwait

In order to process your visa/work permit at the Kuwait embassy, there are a number of documents that are essential to be legalised by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO). Once your documents have been legalised, with apostille stamps affixed, your documents will be accepted by the Kuwait embassy in London, United Kingdom.

If you hold a British passport or a NON British passport with UK residency, It is important to have the following documents prepared when applying for your visa for Kuwait:

  1. Electronic visa – provided by your new employer or Ministry of Interior (MOI) in Kuwait
  2. A Criminal Record Certificate – either a DBS or Police ACRO 
  3. Your passport – Valid for at least 6 months
  4. A recent UK General Medical report – issued by any medical centre or GP


1. Electronic visa – provided by your new employer or ministry of interior in Kuwait

Your electronic visa will be sent to you electronically most likely by your new employer. We will need this in order to obtain the permit to be stamped on your passport.

Is the original required to be sent to us for processing?YESNO*
Does it require Solicitor certification?YESNO
Does it require legalisation from the UK Foreign Office?YESNO
NB* A clear scanned copy can be sent to us in lieu of the original.

The Kuwaiti embassy will stamp on the back of this document, which you will need to present to the immigration officer once you arrive in Kuwait.


2. A criminal record certificate

This can either be the Police ACRO or a DBS certificate

You DO NOT need to apply for both, either one of these certificates will suffice towards your visa application

The criminal record certificate must be issued AFTER the date of issue of the work permit, or joining family permit from Kuwait. If you apply for this before, the Kuwaiti authorities will reject your application.

Is the original required to be sent to us for processing?YESNO
Does it require Solicitor certification?YES*NO
