Rules You Must Know When Travelling From India To Kuwait

Travellers who have been fully vaccinated with a vaccine approved by the Kuwait government don’t need to take RT-PCR tests to travel to the country. But those despite being fully vaccinated, if they have completed 9 months since their second dose, then they are still considered partially vaccinated. They need to take a booster dose to be considered fully vaccinated as per Kuwaiti guidelines. Unvaccinated and partially vaccinated arrivals need to take an RT-PCR test.

Instead of the earlier 7-day home quarantine, a 14-day self-monitoring time has been implemented. Apart from uploading a negative RT-PCR test taken 72 hours before the journey, passengers can also choose to upload a vaccination certificate if they are arriving in Kuwait from 82 countries. If passengers test positive on arrival they will instantly be shifted to a medical facility and will be isolated. Do keep these things in mind when travelling to Kuwait from India.
