Kuwait visa costs
The cost of obtaining a Kuwait e-Visa is determined by the processing time you choose. Once you have decided how fast you want your e-Visa issued, you can start your Kuwait e-Visa application now. You have three options from which you can select the one you want or need, and they are as follows:
Standard processing – This is the cheapest option available and it is also the most commonly purchased. It costs only 20 USD (or the equivalent in the currency of your country of origin,) and your visa is ready in 72 hours (three business days.)
Rush processing – the second option is a little bit more expensive than the previous one. Using it means that you will get your Kuwait evisa in 48 hours, but it will cost you an additional 40 USD, which means you have to pay 60 USD in total.
Super Rush processing – this is meant for people who need to leave to Kuwait right away and need to obtain a visa overnight. It is ready in 12 hours, but as you may have guessed, it costs a lot more than the standard. In fact, it adds 60 USD to your bill, which means the total cost of the visa will go as up as 80 USD.
Important: Weekends in Kuwait are on Fridays and Saturdays which means Friday does not count as a business day.
Before applying for the Kuwait evisa, there are a few other things you should know. The evisa is valid 30 days before you leave for Kuwait, and if your date of arrival is in more than 30 days, iVisa will put your application on hold so that you get your visa right before leaving. You have a single entry, and once you are in Kuwait, the visa expires in 90 days.
