q8 definitely isn''t gaining or profiting much from these 7 countries.
Other countries themselves should ban their own residents and nationals from entering other countries like Philippines did before. until vaccine is available to all in their respective countries (India has Brains and Vaccine).
even expats should understand that ..there is no better life for themselves in this country. how much they''ll slog in this very terrible extreme dusty weather for minimum and less wages and sometimes no wages at all and live over crowdedly in pathetic places and conditions in hasawi and mini kerala malayalee JLEEB.

Many Good and Successful Companies are being blacklisted because incompetent illiterate and stubborn VAASTA people with high salary and high positions are successfully drowning companies as they know no work only speak one language. so have No new projects and this is not because of this 7 countries and moreover CHINA has many ON going projects and products(its ironic and TRAGIC). however its happening.

GOD BLESS.

We all know before that this day will come so why surprised and shocked...when we come to any gulf country these are risks associated as there is no pathway for permanent residence or citizenship...so 20 percent wise people already relocated or got their PR for other developed countries whereas remaining now crying...com on friends Kuwait is and was never our country it is only a temporary stay place to earn dinars by compromising your youth here and they want only khadamas ,drivers and cleaners not educated ones so pack your bag and leave kuwait with respect before they kick you like donkey slaves from their country

Purely racist decision...... Other countries in arab world have more corona than these countries but they hide it.

Hi, The decision of banning is their right whether we like it or not. we do not know the reason fully enough now and will be clearer in a few days time. We may be affected but we do not have a choice. We can''t expect Kuwait to solve our job issues. But hope Kuwait is reasonable and follow principles of natural justice..like I know of a few who are stranded and lost jobs but need to come in to vacate their houses properly and they can leave.

However, I do not understood what India or modi or kanhaiya Kumar got to do with it. In any case India has decided about his rants in the last election and I think he lost his deposit. People have made their choice so emphatically. In any case thee discussions are to be made on relevant posts/ forums and the present one has no relation whatsoever to what you are alluding to and it is better to keep your prejudices and bias to your self regards

Good decision by Kuwait Authorities as this is a chance for nationalization, so you will see Kuwaitis selling tomato in the corner side bakala. As for the Expats, they will realize Kuwait is not their destination nor their final destiny they to can sell tomatoes in their respective countries.

Since they ban entry, even those with valid visa who exit will not be able to enter later...... so stuck in good ole Kuwait lala land.

Is this a verified news? I dont find any references or any such announcement on any ministry site.
Has anyone seen/heard about this ban on any official channel? If yes, kindly share that link as well.

People continue to do as they like and invoke god''s blessing when they are in need and god''s judgement upon those they perceive a threat. Seldom will they accept god''s judgement or punishment in the present as a result of past foolish actions and crimes. Praying will not get you out. We need to weather the storm as long as it lasts. When you insist on staying in a country that repeatedly asks you to leave politely, then they will see to it that you run and even beg to leave.

How do Kuwaiti businesses like to respond? Their customer base will be halved. Real estate bust. Supermarkets bust. Car dealers bust. Home appliances Electronics furnitures bust. Restaurants already bust.

I believe Indians residing in Kuwait can go to India but cannot come back and may not get new visas for now.

I am not sure the basis for imposing ban on selected countries. If we assume COVID 19 cases as the reason, then it is not true, because Srilanka has one of the lowest COVID 19 cases in the world, whereas USA tops the list. Is there an ulterior motive to reduce the expats from these 7 countries???. Possible, but this is all speculation. Therefore let''s give sometime to Kuwait Govt. to decide their position on the expats from these 7 counties. Having said that, God bless all the expats who are stranded in their home countries.

Stay indoors and have fun everybody :)
Looks like Kuwait will give us citizenship after all. They won''t allow us to go, they won''t allow us to enter, so this means they want us to stay. We can apply for citizenship and wear disdasha and burkha and become Kuwaiti mama and baba, aaahaaahaahahahah !!

Most comments are from working class people who have lived so long in Kuwait that their mind and life revolves around their job. This is an unfortunate consequence of the ''for work only'' requirement of expats from Kuwait govt.
Hence we think all govt. decisions should benefit our work. Sadly not true. And despite all the publicity and focus on development status of India, yes we are still a third world/ developing country - whether we accept it or not.
We must be prepared in the event this ban continues long enough, large no. of expats will be forced out because their funds have reduced to zero.

It''s really ridiculous!! Dont play with people''s feelings and emotions!! Many people book their tickets. In the end you are saying you can''t enter. You should this decision when you announce the commissioning of commercial flights. Not now!! Just 2days before. God have mercy on our people who are stranded. This decision should be lift as soon as possible. Bcz all who are entering to Kuwait are coming with PCR test. No worries. God is our Helper. He will show the way for our brothern. God bless everyone.

The decision of COM, Kuwait should be a - food for thought for us- I remember Kanhaiyya Kumar saying that the dark clouds looming over our country would wither away one day but what is disturbing is the damage that would have happened by then. The methodology that we adopted to scare away the coronavirus through taali, thali, lighting of diya were kiddish.

So much so Amitabh Bachchan himself did not download the Aarogya Setu App, the brain child of of our PM which used to alarm about any corona patient around. As reported by one anchor of very good standing, it was downloaded 100 million times within days of its launch but, looks like AB Sr. either forgot / deliberately didn''t do it, otherwise all of them would have been aware that full family is corona infected. This is the seriousness. All said and done, my heart weeps for all those who loose chance to come to Kuwait. Rest Allàh Karim. InShaAllah, all good and khair.
