The Ministry of External Affairs has waived the fee for Emergency Certificates to Indian nationals covered under the amnesty declared by the Kuwait government in view of difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Minister of State for External Affairs V Muraleedharan said the move will benefit around 25,000 Indian nationals in Kuwait.
