Kuwait Airport to resolve entry issues of expats, KCHjobs News

KIA aims to resolve entry issues before arrival of expats

As Kuwait International Airport (KIA) gears up to allow the entry of vaccinated residence-holders from August 1, the authorities are attempting to resolve some of the issues pertaining to the entry mechanism for foreigners.

On June 17, the Council of Ministers approved several decisions regarding travel abroad for citizens and entry of non-Kuwaitis into the country as of Sunday, 1 August.


Some of the conditions attached to the entry of expats include that they receive two doses of the anti-Coronavirus vaccines approved in Kuwait, namely Pfizer-BioNTech, Oxford-AstraZeneca, and Moderna, or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. They should also possess a PCR test performed 72 hours before arrival and showing that they are free of infection from COVID-19 disease and on entry must quarantine at home for a period of seven days after arrival.

Among other issues raised by KIA is increasing the operational capacity of the airport so that the number of arrivals to the country could reach 5,000 passengers instead of the current 3,500, along with an increase in the number of flights and the number of passengers onboard each flight, as well as the easing of other travel restrictions.An upcoming meeting between KIA and Ministry of Health officials will clarify and finalize the detailed procedures to implement the Cabinet’s recent decisions.
