Icelander who will depart to Kuwait no longer needs to visit the embassy for a tourism or business visa. Thanks to iVisa, Icelander along with more than 50 nationalities can apply through the internet. Your electronic visa will be sent through email within 12 hours.
Icelander needs to check their qualification before applying. This can be accomplished through iVisa’s website by clicking on the Visa Checker then follow the steps. You can apply as soon as you found out that you are eligible.
Some information and documents will be requested by iVisa so they can process your request. You only need to provide few documents prior the application process. Here is a list of requirements for Icelander:
Valid passport – you might already have one. Please do check its expiry date to make sure that is still valid.
Digital copy of your passport – the most important part is the information page, but you should go ahead and scan the entire booklet.
Valid e-mail address – electronic visas are linked to passports digitally, and so will the visa provided by iVisa. Still, you 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.
Accepted payment – prior to submitting the application, you will be asked to pay the service fee using a credit/debit card or a PayPal account.
How to apply?
Icelander can fill out the online form that iVisa provides so there is no need to print out and fill in the form by hand. In less than 10 minutes, you can finish everything. In case you need assistance, you can also call iVisa’s customer support.
You will be inputting personal information in the first step. The processing time that you select will determine how long it will take to receive your visa. If you want it faster, then your service fee will higher. As for that, iVisa gives you three options:
Standard processing – you can go for this option if you are in no hurry. It takes three business days for your application to be processed for just $20.
Rush processing– for $60, this option will have your visa ready in just 2 business days.
Super rush processing – you can select this option if you want to be on a plane to Kuwait on the next day. Your application will be processed within just 12 hours for $80.
As their weekends are on Fridays and Saturdays, Kuwait’s weekend differs from most countries. Icelander should take note of that when applying.
To complete step two, review all the information and make your payment. It is essential to fill in the form 100% accurate. Revisions are no longer allowed after your application is processed.
Like the ones previously mentioned, the third step is uploading some documents. Icelander may be asked to provide additional documents but is case to case basis.
Acquiring a Kuwait digital visa is simple as you can see. The document is valid for only 30 days, so you need to depart for Kuwait before the 30-day period expires. Also, Icelander is permitted to stay in Kuwait for maximum 90 days and have a single entry.
