You just need to go to their website and input your country of origin and choose Kuwait as your destination. It just takes short moment to find out if you are eligible.
The application process is straightforward so French should not encounter difficulties in completing it. Aside from that, iVisa provides an excellent support service that can take your call day and night if you have questions or if you need any help.
What are the requirements?
There are still a few things like information and documents that French need to submit, since these kinds of services need those to process requests. There are only a few in the list and the documents are easily accessible. Here is what you should provide:
Valid passport – chances are you already have one. However, make sure that is still valid. Take a look at its expiry date.
Digital copy of your passport – the most crucial part is the information page, but you should just scan the entire booklet.
Valid e-mail address – digital visas are linked to passports electronically. However, you still need to print out a copy before departure, which is why iVisa will send you one via e-mail in PDF format.
GCC residence card – this applies only to applicants from the other countries that are a part of Gulf Cooperation Council (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.) At the same time, the applicants from the GCC must work in specific fields. You can find all of them on iVisa’s website.
Payment method – the Kuwait evisa itself is free, but before submitting the application, you will be asked to pay the service fee for iVisa. You can do so using a credit/debit card or a Paypal account.
Processing Time and Visa Cost
iVisa is happy to process and complete your request in as short time as possible as we value time. French can choose one of the three available processing times that best suits them. The cost of your visa is determined by your processing time so make sure that you choose wisely. They are as follows:
Standard processing – you can go for this option if you like to plan ahead. It takes three business days for your application to be processed, and the s service fee is just $20.
Rush processing– this option will have your visa ready in just 2 business days. You will be billed $60 which is higher than the first option.
Super rush processing – if you want to be on a plane to Kuwait tomorrow, you can select this option. Your application will be processed within just 12 hours, and you will pay $80 for the urgency.
Reminder: Kuwait’s weekend is on Fridays and Saturdays, so take that into consideration when you do the math regarding the processing time.
Kuwait evisa – The Application Form
Most of us including French do not like complicated forms, so iVisa created a very simple one. It is very simple that it only consists of three steps.
In the first step, you will input your general information and choose one of the three processing time mentioned above. This can be accomplished in as quickly as 5 minutes.
The second step is about payment and quick revision. It is really important that French should be careful when filling in the general information section. You will no longer be allowed to revise or edit once application is processed, so you have a little window to do a correction. Aside from that, the cost of your visa is non-refundable after processing. So it advisable to double-check everything you fill in during step one.
The final step will ask French to submit any additional documents you may be required to. The number of documents differs from case to case, so you may be required to upload more documents than other people. That is pretty much it. At this point, all you have to do is to wait for your visa to arrive in your e-mail inbox.
The Kuwait visa is not difficult to obtain, and it takes only about 10 minutes of your time. The document you get will allow French to stay in Kuwait for 90 days, and you have a single entry.
