Those arriving in Kuwait are advised not to be infected with the virus but to take preventive measures, including isolating themselves, avoiding crowding and wearing masks if they have symptoms. Authorities have also asked for travel to be postponed except for emergency trips.
Kuwait, meanwhile, has tightened sanctions amid fears of an omega-1 outbreak in the country. The decision to tighten the restrictions was taken at a ministerial meeting held last day. The Government Communications Center said that as part of strengthening the Kovid resistance, it was mandatory for everyone coming to the country to stay in the home quarantine for 72 hours.
Do not leave the house or come in contact with others in the home for any reason during this period. The PCR test should be performed immediately upon arrival in the country and within 72 hours of the quarantine. It was decided at the ministerial meeting that if the second test is not conducted, they should stay in the quarantine for 10 days. In addition, travelers must have a PCR test result within 48 hours of departure for the country. Currently the condition is to submit the negative certificate held within 72 hours.
