Meanwhile, the embassy said in view of the Covid-19 situation due to the new variant Omicron, the Indian doctors from the Indian Doctors Forum (IDF), Kuwait have expressed their willingness to provide free of cost voluntary tele-consultations medical advice and counseling support to Indians in Kuwait.

A complete list of the doctors indicating their specialties, contact details, consultation timings, languages spoken etc. has been posted on the Indian Embassy websites with a request to all associations and groups to circulate it to the community members. All the doctors have voluntarily consented to help, give advice and guide patients in distress during this COVID pandemic but in case of emergency visit the hospital in your respective area.

However, in case of no answer due to any reason, leave a text message or voice message and the doctor will revert positively. No treatment/medications whatsoever will be recommended in the conversation as it is strongly prohibited by law. The service rendered by the doctors is purely of advisory nature and the individual may like to use it at his/her discretion for course of action. The Embassy of India in Kuwait does not bear any responsibility for consequences arising out of such advice.
