UAE airlines announce travel restrictions to Kuwait
This came after Kuwait said it will suspend entry for non-citizens for two weeks as of February 7, following a rise in coronavirus cases.
According to guidelines issued by Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways, from February 7 to February 21, only Kuwait nationals, first-degree Kuwaiti relatives and domestic workers travelling with a Kuwaiti sponsor can enter Kuwait on the airline’s flights. This is in addition to 14-day quarantine on arrival to Kuwait and a negative PCR test result before departure.
Dubai-based Emirates said it is not accepting non- Kuwaiti passengers on flights from Dubai to Kuwait, from February 7 to February 20, 2021.
Customers holding tickets with Kuwait as a final destination will not be accepted for travel at their point of origin.
In case of flydubai, effective from January 24 until February 6, all passengers with onward flight connections to Kuwait will not be accepted for travel. This does not apply to passengers connecting to Kuwait after 14 days quarantine in Dubai.
