Kuwait To Resume Flight Operations With India and 5 Other Countries


The Govt of Kuwait on Wednesday announced that it will resume commercial flight operations with 6 countries including India, Egypt, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Nepal.

Passenger flight operations from the above-mentioned countries were restricted due to the Covid-19 situation.

The decision was made in a cabinet meeting which underlined that the flights with these countries would be subject to measures identified by Kuwait’s ministerial coronavirus emergency committee.

Effective 24th April, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), Kuwait has suspended all passenger flights coming from India.


Moreover, all passengers arriving from the Republic of India were not allowed to enter the country, either arriving directly or via another country unless they have resided outside the Republic of India at least (14) days before arrival to the state of Kuwait.

UAE Also Lifts Ban On Flights From India

Earlier this month the UAE has also lifted the ban on passenger flights from India and allowed entry of stranded residents from India.

It is worth mentioning that the restrictions on travel from India to UAE are still in place, those Indians who have a valid residency permit and are fully vaccinated, at least 14 days before the travel — are included in the exempted category.

International flights from India to Dubai were suspended on 22 April when the second wave of Covid-19 was raging across the country. However, transportation of passengers from the gulf country to India was allowed.
