Kuwait – Kuwait has suspended issuance of visa including tourism, visit and trade visas as well as visas sponsored by spouses for five countries. Banned nationals include Syria, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan from entering the country.

The visas are suspended due to difficult security conditions in these countries and to the remarkably increasing tendency of nationals from the five countries to apply for visas to bring in relatives who faced or could face arrest by the local authorities to Kuwait.

The sources said that the ban was temporarily and would be lifted after the security situation stabilized.
