The technical committee at the Ministry of Health (MoH), responsible for auditing vaccines and approving vaccination certificates from abroad, has received nearly 75,000 requests for approval as of last week.
Of these applications a total of 18,500 have been approved so far, while over 10,000 were rejected for various reasons, including that the vaccine received was not approved by the authorities in Kuwait, the data provided on vaccination was insufficient, or that it did not contain the requisite QR code.
In the meantime, the committee is said to be in the process of announcing all the organizational measures needed for the return of vaccinated people to the country. The vaccination certificate approval steps to be taken by passengers seeking to enter the country include:
Registering with the certificate download platform on the Ministry of Health website.
Receive a special activation code via email.
Download the vaccination certificate and fill in the data for the two vaccine doses and their respective symbols.
Wait for a response from the Ministry of Health via email.
In case of approval, download the Immune application and activate it to show the status of vaccination or not.
In the event of refusal, the matter must be reported to the authority issuing the vaccination certificate in the same country for any redressal of issues.
The committee also clarified that those who receive the vaccination in Kuwait will only need to register on the Kuwait Mosafer platform and download the Immune application, in addition to conducting a PCR examination 72 hours before arrival, indicating that they are free of infection.
