Government Agencies in Kuwait Preparing For The Arrival of Expats Following Travel Ban

Starting August 1, the Kuwait International Airport will allow entry of expatriates who are vaccinated with 2 doses of approved COVID-19 vaccines. Agencies that have involvement in its implementation are already preparing for the surge of travelers coming to the country. The entry mechanism will also be finalized in the next few days.

A meeting will be held with airport officials and the Ministry of Health to sort out the process and to address the issues that constitute the procedures. One of the procedures that need proper discussion is the increase of the number of passengers, from 3,500 it is now up to 5,000 passengers. The easing of the travel restrictions will also be handled appropriately.

Just recently, it can be recalled that a decision to allow citizens and non-Kuwaitis to travel as long as they are fully vaccinated with vaccines approved by the Health Ministry. These vaccines include Moderna, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, and Johnson. Furthermore, they will also be asked to show proof of negative PCR test results which must be taken 72 hours before they arrive in Kuwait. Another PCR will be performed during their home quarantine that will last for 7 days.
