Kuwait has lifted many of its travel restrictions and has announced revised guidelines for travellers.
Kuwait Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has announced that fully vaccinated travellers will not have to undergo mandatory quarantine on arrival. The government of Kuwait has also said that all passengers (except visa on arrival in Kuwait) can enter the city-state despite their vaccination status.
According to new travel guidelines, those who are fully vaccinated and have taken a booster dose, are no longer required to take a pre-departure and on arrival RT PCR test in Kuwait. Such travellers are also exempted from home quarantine upon arrival.
On the other hand, if a traveller is partially vaccinated, or hasn’t received the second dose of vaccine over nine months ago, they’ll have to undergo a mandatory home quarantine for seven days on arrival along with on-arrival testing. Such travellers will get an option of ending the quarantine by showing a negative PCR test report.
Unvaccinated travellers or the ones who have not completed the full dose of vaccination will also have to carry their negative PCR test report not older than 72 hours. Kids under 16 are exempted from the testing requirement.
