> Could the AP be not sending the beacon frames?

It is sending out beacons, thats how you see it. Theres no SSID data in the beacon, thats the reason why it's a cloaked network.

> In that case, I think I should wait for a client to enter that network in order to allow kismet guess the SSID, shouldn't I?

Yes. And Kismet doesn't "guess" the SSID. The SSID is sent with the packets from the client.

> Thank you in advance!

You are welcome.
