Expats' Children Allowed to Enroll

‘No need to wait for completion of residence’
KUWAIT CITY, Dec 6: The Ministry of Interior has agreed to allow the children of expatriates, who entered the country on dependent visas and are now waiting for the completion of the processing of their residence permits, to enroll in private schools and universities, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily quoting sources.
Sources explained the ministry took the decision in response to the request of its education counterpart. Sources said the decision allows expatriates to register their children without the need to wait for the completion of residence formalities — the usual cause of delay in the enrollment of foreign students. Sources added the decision is applicable only on those who have not exceeded the time limit mentioned in the visa for completion of the residence permit procedures.

 How come I am just seeing this? Gustavo and I took the kids down to register them at The English School Fahaheel  they were given a test and guess what? They were accepted:) So our days of homeschooling are almost over. I have really been trying my hardest to keep them busy with school work. There is only one problem... Putting the kids in school in KUWAIT is very expensive. Like the cost of college tuition!!! I guess this is another sacrifice that must be made! Now I see why many Americans do not bring their families. I wish we would have brought them when they were younger!
