KUWAIT CITY — Kuwait prepares to receive fully vaccinated expatriates from Aug. 1, the Ministry of Health said.

Abdullah Al-Sanad, spokesman of the ministry, said in a press statement that Kuwait Airport will allow the return of fully vaccinated expats starting from Aug. 1 according to the decision of the government.

The ministry's team will check the vaccination certificates of travellers vaccinated outside the country, he added.

The spokesman asked vaccinated expats who will return to Kuwait to upload their vaccination certificates on the ministry's website for confirmation.

According to the decision of the Kuwaiti government, arrivals must present the result of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours before departure.

When they land in Kuwait, they must be quarantined at home for seven days. If they want to end the quarantine early, they must have a negative PCR test result on the third day. — KUNA
