Dubai: Kuwait’s Council of Ministers has approved a decision extending the ban on entry of foreigners to the country until further notice, local media reported.
This means foreign nationals will still not be allowed to enter Kuwait with an exception of few categories. Medical workers and their families as well as diplomats and domestic workers will continue to be allowed to enter the country as per the protocol laid out in the previous ruling.
The move comes as part of Kuwait’s measures taken to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Last month, Kuwait witnessed a record increase in both infections and deaths causing the government to impose a partial curfew and take stricter measures to better contain the spread of the virus.
