Confusion surrounding the entry of Indians and some other Asian nationalities has been further clarified after Kuwait International Airport (KIA) published a clarification regarding passengers coming from banned countries (India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Nepal). Expats traveling from these countries must stay in a third country for a period of not less than 14 days before they arrive in Kuwait.

KIA clarified the following travel requirements for Non-Kuwaiti passengers with valid visas/residence, except the Article 20 visa category.

If Vaccinated –  Passengers must stay in another country for 14 days before they arrive in Kuwait and are subjected to 7 days institutional quarantine in  Kuwait.

If they wish to end the quarantine, they must conduct one PCR  test during their quarantine in Kuwait, if the result is negative, the scheduled institutional quarantine period will be ended.

Whereas passengers traveling through other countries can enter Kuwait directly and are subject to 7 days home quarantine in Kuwait.

Not vaccinated expatriates are not allowed to enter Kuwait. 

This restriction does not apply to Passengers with exceptional entry approval from the Council of Ministers and Article 20 visa holders.
