Prohibition on entry for foreigners extended
Meanwhile, Kuwaiti authorities have decided to continue the temporary ban imposed on foreigners entering Kuwait last month. The ban has been extended until further notice. At a time when the spread of Kovid in the country is at its most critical stage, Kuwaiti authorities are assessing that allowing foreigners to travel would be out of control.
