The advisory is based on an announcement made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that Kuwait has a high level of corona, and that they must remain vigilant in the places they visit especially places frequented by large groups of people, travelers or tourists.”

The advisory requires its citizens to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive alerts and facilitate location identification in the event of an emergency, and that US citizens traveling abroad should always have a contingency plan in place for emergencies.

The advisory warns its citizens against going to the desert area near the border with Iraq due to the spread of unexploded ordnance at Level 4. The warning stated: “Do not travel, as the desert areas and some beaches north of the Al Mutla’a mountain range continue to contain the remaining unexploded ordnance from the 1990-1991 Gulf War. People should avoid areas off the beaten path and avoid touching objects likely to be unexploded ordnance.”
