Arrivals in Kuwait can be relieved of quarantine with negative-result PCR

– Incoming vaccinated travellers will be relieved of house quarantine for the coronavirus if they undergo a PCR test with a negative result upon arrival in Kuwait, starting Tuesday, said the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense on Monday.

Sheikh Hamad Jaber Al-Ali Al-Sabah, the head of the ministerial emergency coronavirus committee, said in a tweet broadcast by the Government Communication Center on Twitter that the Cabinet during today’s session decided to enforce a seven-day house quarantine for the immunized incoming travellers.

However, the minister has noted that the cabinet decided that the quarantine can be ended much earlier if a PCR test is conducted immediately after the arrival proving that the concerned traveler is not infected, and this is effective as of Tuesday (January 18).
