On Friday, the Kuwaiti Ministry of Health announced that the country will begin accepting vaccinated expatriates on August 1.
According to a press release from Abdullah al Sanad, spokesman for the ministry, Kuwait International Airport will begin accepting the return of fully vaccinated expats on August 1 as part of the government’s decision to legalize the practice.
He went on to say that a team from the ministry will review the vaccination certificates of travelers who have been immunized outside of the country.
The official requested that expats who have been vaccinated and who plan to return to Kuwait upload their vaccination certificates to the ministry’s website for verification.
According to the Kuwaiti government’s policy, passengers arriving in the country must provide the results of a negative PCR test done within 72 hours after their departure.
When they arrive in Kuwait, they must be quarantined in their residence for a period of seven days. They must get a negative PCR test result on the third day in order to be able to stop the quarantine sooner rather than later.
