  • Status is not correct "According to http://www.arabtimesonline.com/news/can-expat-adopt-child-expat-kuwait/ adoption in general is not allowed Unfortunately, adoption of children is not allowed in Kuwait. This can’t be done by even the Kuwaitis, who can take on children as foster parents but not as parents (not give them their name). They also are not part of any inheritance. Please also remember that abandoned children are “adopted by the state”. The best way, which is being followed by expatriates, is to adopt children in your own country and then bring them to Kuwait as “your children”. There will be no objection, by Kuwait authorities, if you follow this route."
