KUWAIT CITY, Nov 2: The Ministry of Interior resumed its services and started accepting visa requests for Commercial, Family and Visit visas. Although the visas have been opened for 53 countries the decision does not include citizens of 7 countries namely Iraq, Yemen, Iran, Syria, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sudan.
Nationalities of these above listed countries are not granted business, work or family visas. But with special approval of the Ministry of Interior visas can be issued, reports Al Rai. In the past the Ports and Passports department granted tourist visas to a number of passport holders on arrival at the airport. Currently this service still stands suspended. This type of visa (E-visa) will be very soon available online, and a person who wishes to visit Kuwait will need to apply in advance through the Ministry of Interior website (https://evisa.moi.gov.kw/evisa/home_e.do) for which vaccination certificate and PCR are requirements.
