Kuwait’s Civil Aviation Authority on Saturday announced it was extending an entry ban for non-Kuwaiti citizens until further notice as part of coronavirus restriction measures, it said on Twitter.


Citizens are still allowed to enter but they must spend a week in quarantine at a hotel and another week at home.


Kuwait will allow non-Kuwaiti citizens to enter the country starting Feb. 21 with some new procedures, the civil aviation authority said on Friday.


Travelers arriving on direct flights from high risk countries will have to resort to institutional quarantine in one of the local hotels for 14 days, while travelers coming from the rest of the world will have to quarantine institutionally for one week and another at home.
