Dear Prem and Heram, FYI, if you notice, the 50% of the news coming in Arab Times are fake or wrong. So dont get fooled by this.

What I noticed is IIK publish only confirmed news. what I mean is majority of the news in IIK are found to be true.

Also I came to knwo IIK is a registered media with Ministry of Information, not like any other sites or facebook page.. So stop depending on Arab Times.

In this news, It is clearly mentioned that this fact is reported in Al Rai news paper. FYI, AlRai is a famous Arabic news paper in Kuwait.

Hope it clarifies your doubts...

What you read heare is all bullshit. First of all Indiansinkuwait is not official. Second news it is clearly mentioned, "......Al Rai Arabic newspaper reported quoting the Ministry of Health sources.......''''
Now imagine, when all first timer to kuwait they made medical mandatory from Gulf Council... and with this peculier situation, rather dangerous one where in one cant trust with other country medical testing procedures... Do you think such news can stand valid?

Information is good but as we stuck in india we need more clarity.
1) Is there any fix format require by Kuwait gov for PCR Certificate??
2) Validity of certificate that kuwait gov will allow.
3) Weather arabic translation is required or not?? (Bcz it is difficult to obtain arabic trans with limited validity of certificate)
Please try to clear this doubts with gov on behalf of us..

Thank you Sir for your info - but when you phone Kuwait embassy in another country to ask them, they tell you sorry, we have no idea, write us e mail and we will answer you back. You write e mail and they never answer.

Is the PCR to be done in India as well in Kuwait what''s the real step we suppose to take as we planning to buy ticket,

Some are saying we have to do PCR direct at Kuwait airport and pay there some 10-20kwd

While some saying we do covid 19test in India and PCR at Kuwait airport

While others saying do in India also and in Kuwait also

While some other saying if we do PCR it should be attached with Arabic translation and attached my ministry within 4 days ,but it''s not possible to be get attached withing 4 days it will take minimum 15days

So what''s the real way we have to take steps to buy ticket and reach Kuwait please send procedures.

Thank you
