Entry ban: Indians from other countries can enter Kuwait

According to the latest directive from DGCA Kuwait, any nationality who had stayed in the seven countries such as Bangladesh, Philippines, India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Iran, Nepal in last 14 days are not allowed to enter Kuwait. However, the nationals from these countries can enter Kuwait if they are stayed for the last 14 days in any other country, not in this list.

Al-Rai Arabic newspaper reported that the entry ban is not linked to any nationality, however only related to their stay in these countries.

This means that residents of those seven countries can go to another country and stay there for a minimum of 14 days and then enter Kuwait with the PCR certificates as stipulated by the DGCA, provided they have a valid entry permit.

This effectively means all the airlines scheduled to start from August 1st may need to rethink about their schedules as passengers cannot fly directly from India to Kuwait. The Kuwait airport will open for commercial flights from Saturday, August 1st.

The list of centres approved by DGCA to conduct PCR test in all countries is available here: Directorate General of Civil Aviation, Kuwait approved PCR testing centres
