No update on entry ban on 32 countries. Entry via the third country is possible

The status of direct entry ban from 32 countries remains the same, and no changes have been made in this decision yet. Any update in this is still awaiting evaluation by the health authorities for review.

Meanwhile, the entry of national from these 32 countries via any third country, which is not in the banned list, will continue. The traveller needs to stay in any other country for a minimum of 14 days before entering Kuwait. There is no change in this decision.

There was a widespread rumour saying Kuwait may ban this indirect entry also as the number of cases among the arrival passengers is on the rise. However, there has been no change in the requirements in this regard.

The local Arabic media reported that the ban on direct entry and allowing them to enter via a third country is a lost opportunity for Kuwait. The neighbouring countries were quick to take this opportunity by attracting travellers from 32 countries with the promotion of tourism offers for more than two weeks, even by providing medical examination for travellers.

Kuwait missed an excellent business opportunity to reopen its Hotel, Travel and Medical fields becoz it did not allow the 32 banned list of passengers to come to Kuwait and process PCR test reports on the basis of 14-days institutional/home quarantine. There would have been some progress in these business fields if the ban was lifted. Many jobs could have been retained and job terminations avoided. The most affected business fields are these - Hotel, Travel & Tourism. Instead of reviving the economy of Kuwait, it going down the cliff. So, sad. When will Kuwait realize the economical loss?
