Kuwait Islamic Council requests to start special flight to India during Amnesty period

Monday, March 30, 2020

Kuwait Islamic Council office bearers have appealed to the central government to arrange a special flight service for the Indian expatriate community during the amnesty period announced by the Kuwait government to strengthen its defense measures against pandamic covid 19.

The amnesty announced by the Kuwait government is commendable and welcome in this particular situation, where the country is implementing strong preventive measures, including public holidays and partial curfews.

According to an amnesty issued on April 1 to 30, all expatriates residents who violate the Kuwait law can return to the country without any fines or penalties.

KIC officials said in a press release that if special flights are allowed to repatriate Indians who wish to return home using the amnesty, it will be a great blessing to them during this difficult period.

Hello Everyone, I am new here in Kuwait, and also this is my first time here, I have come here to see my Father, now my visit visa have already expired on 21st March, but due to this lockdown, I couldn''t go back. So, If anyone here knows anything about the special flight and how to get a ticket kf that flight, would you be kind enough to let me know about that? I don''t want a free ticket, I will definitely pay for it.

Any idea on special flights for Indians who wish to go to India ( normal residents- not residency violators) due to some emergency requirement ? How to address this issue to Embassy of India / Ministry of External affairs , Govt of India? Any suggestions are welcome.

Mr. Murali,
Please ask yourself a question: Does Kuwait need you or You need Kuwait. Rest assured. Good luck

Will the flights be free of cost? If free, this will encourage more people.
I want to return back even if I have valid visa. Can I get free ticket back?
