The 6 month ruld for being outside of Kuwait has been increased to 1 year. So any one whos visa is not expired can visit Kuwait.
Jazeera has started accepting bookings & ticket rates are sky rocketing.
Can any one tell about PCR Certificate requirements, as any one can get PCR test from good lab but is it required to be affiliated with Kuwait embassy & it must be in arabis or no?

It is very good news for stranded expats waiting to return to Kuwait. I would like to request IIK to also take up matter of expats who got stranded and their residence has expired they should also get a chance to come back and get their residency renewed.
