DUBAI: Kuwait has eased quarantine restrictions for travelers who took the coronavirus vaccine or recovered from it, state news agency KUNA reported.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said the latest decision applies to travelers who have taken their first dose two weeks before their arrival in Kuwait, or those whose recovery did not exceed 90 days.
The aviation authority added that passengers must present a negative PCR test result that is valid for at least 72 hours prior to their flight time. They should also purchase one PCR test via the “Kuwaitmosafer” platform before boarding the plane.
“The passenger will be in quarantine but he or she must carry out a PCR test within three days from arrival date, and if proven negative, he or she can leave quarantine,” KUNA said.
Nationals and their companions and domestic helpers are not allowed to travel unless they have taken any of the approved vaccines, according to Saad Al-Otaibi, DGCA’s deputy director general for planning projects.
Those who could not take the vaccine due to health conditions, pregnancy, age categories not subjected to vaccines, students and diplomats, are exempted by the health ministry.
Non-citizens of Kuwait are still banned from visiting the country until further notice, Al-Otaibi said.
Kuwait’s coronavirus caseload has reached 298,223 with 1,724 deaths and 283,952 recoveries.
