Kuwait’s Civil Aviation Department issued a decision barring Kuwaiti citizens who had taken the second vaccine dose nine months ago from leaving the country unless they take the third vaccine (booster dose). The decision is effective from January 2, 2022.
Kuwaiti citizens who had taken the second dose nine months or more must get the third vaccine dose to be able to travel, the department said. The decision comes after the council of ministers said those who had taken the second dose nine months ago are no longer considered immune to the Coronavirus and must take the booster shot.
Those who had been vaccinated outside the country should produce a vaccination certificate. Expats who had received their vaccinations outside the country can upload their vaccination certificates through the health ministry website to verify the vaccination.
