All Round View (Peshawar): Egypt advises nationals who plan on returning to their work abroad, especially in Kuwait, to be cautious in dealing with tourism companies and to make sure they meet all the necessary travel requirements, a statement by the Emigration and Expatriate Affairs Ministry said on Friday night.
After a five-month hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, Kuwait announced the resumption of international flights since the beginning of August. This excludes travellers arriving from several countries from entering Kuwaiti land unless they stayed in a third country beforehand for a minimum of 14 days.
The list of the countries impacted by the Kuwaiti entry ban includes Egypt, along with other countries from different continents.
The Emigration ministry urged that Egyptians travelling to the Gulf country are to fulfil all necessary measures, including obtaining a flight ticket, carrying a valid visa, and reviewing the position of the transit country, through which they can travel to Kuwait.
The ministry’s call came three days after groups of Egyptian citizens were held at Addis Ababa’s Bole International airport for visa and quarantine violations.
