Exceptions to decision against granting visas to pregnant women.

The Ministry of Interior is inclined to adopt five exceptions to the decision to not grant entry visas to women except after the visitor provides a recognized medical certificate stating that she is not pregnant, reports Al-Anba daily.

The concerned authorities submitted a request to the Assistant Undersecretary for Citizenship and Residency Affairs at the Ministry of Interior, stressing that there are some special cases that the administration must consider exempting from the requirement of presenting a medical certificate.

The cases to be excluded from requirement are – domestic workers who are accompanied by citizens of the Gulf Cooperation Council countries, domestic workers accompanied by diplomats coming to Kuwait, girls under the age of 16 and women over the age of 50 years, and foreigners who are granted entry visas electronically (online), as they are linked to the agreements signed with Kuwait for granting them entry visas directly upon their arrival in the country.
