“Based on the instructions of health authorities, it has been decided to extend the ban on non-Kuwaiti passengers’ entry until further notice. Kuwaiti passengers can continue to enter, given that they quarantine in one of the approved local hotels for a period of seven days and self-isolate at home for another seven days,” it added.

Citizens are still allowed to enter but they must spend a week in quarantine at a hotel and another week at home.

Kuwait said on Friday it will allow non-Kuwaiti citizens to enter the country starting February 21 with some new procedures.
