When you get sent your visa from work to the country you are from whether that be England or elsewhere, it will be all written in Arabic. So for those that don’t read Arabic I thought I would make a post explaining really simply what each part of your visa is saying in English. This can also be helpful for you to check the details before you head off to the embassy and basically just to be on the safe side that everything is correct.
If there is something specific on the visa you are not sure what it means feel free to either contact me through here or on via twitter which is MissK_inQ8
Full Name – الاسم الكامل
Nationality – الجنسية
If you are from the UK it should say – المملكة المتحدة which says United Kingdom in Arabic.
If you are from the US it should say – الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية
If you are from South Africa it should say – جنوب أفريقيا
If you are from elsewhere feel free to get in touch if you want me to check for you.
Occupation – المهنة
if it includes مدرس then it’s fine if you are a teacher. Again any other occupation feel free to contact me to check
Sex – الجنس
female is – انثى
male is – الذكر
Date of Birth – تاريخ الميلاد
check it’s correct
Passport Number – رقم الجواز
check it’s correct
Passport Type – نوع الجواز
it should say عادي if you are a teacher. Just means normal/ordinary. I’m assuming this would be different if perhaps you are a diplomat etc it would change as you have a different type of visa.
Expiry Date – تاريخ الإنتهاء
check it’s correct in your passport
Place of Issue – محل الإصدار
Again if you are from the U.K. it should say المملكة المتحدة

This will be difficult if you don’t read Arabic as you can’t check but it’s very unlikely there to be any errors.
Visa Number – رقم التأشيرة
This is your visa number
Purpose – الغرض

If you are coming out as a teacher it should say – سمة دخول عمل اهلى

Really quick post today but hopefully useful for everyone flying out to Kuwait.
