Kuwait Lifts Many COVID Restrictions, Allows Travel Abroad

Kuwait’s cabinet has lifted many COVID-19 restrictions including a ban on foreign travel, a move that will also apply to those who are not vaccinated, Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah al-Khalid al-Sabah said on Monday.

The unvaccinated will still have to get a PCR test 72 hours before boarding a flight to the Gulf state and quarantine for seven days after arrival, while those who are vaccinated would not be required to do so.

Some of the restrictions lifted from next week would include allowing the unvaccinated to enter shopping malls, as well as inside cinemas, theaters and banquet halls if they present a negative PCR test.
