KUWAIT CITY – Kuwait has extended its travel ban on foreigners who want to enter the country.
According to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) late on Saturday, the ban will be in place until further notice.
Kuwaitis and their first-degree relatives and domestic workers are exempted from the decision, which comes as the country imposed new health measures against the spread of Covid-19.
Those exempted from the ban will need to undergo quarantine at a hotel for seven days, at their own expense, followed by a 7-day home quarantine. MEB/Expat Media
