Currently, there are 53 nationalities including Vietnamese that have access to a Kuwait evisa, which means that the citizens of those 53 countries and territories are no longer required to visit an embassy and get their visa for Kuwait. To find out whether you are one of those lucky people is easy. iVisa provides an user friendly tool called Visa Checker. Simply put in your country of origin and choose Kuwait as your destination. You will find out if you are eligible in just a second.
It is quite straightforward application process, and Vietnamese should have no difficulty in finishing it. If, however, you have trouble understanding the process, iVisa provides an excellent support service that can take your call day and night.
What is required of you?
There is no service that does all the work without asking for something. Vietnamese still need to submit a few things like information and documents. It is just a short list of easily accessible documents. Here is what you need to 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 essential part is the information page, but you should just scan the entire booklet.
Valid e-mail address – electronic 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.
- Means of payment – 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
Time is precious to every single one of us, which is why iVisa guarantees to complete your request in as little time as possible. Vietnamese can choose one of the three available processing times that best suits their needs or pocket. Take note that your choice will determine the cost of your visa, so make sure that you choose wisely. They are as follows:
Standard processing – if you like to plan ahead, you can go for this option. 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. The cost, however, goes a bit higher. You will be billed $60.
- 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.
Quick tip: Kuwait’s weekend is on Fridays and Saturdays, so keep that in mind when you do the math regarding the processing time.
Kuwait evisa – the application form
Vietnamese usually dislike forms, but the one created by iVisa is easy to understand. It is broken down into three steps for your convenience. The first one will ask you to input your general information and choose one of the three processing time mentioned above. It should take you about 5 minutes to complete.
The second step consists of payment and a quick revision. It is important that Vietnamese are careful when you fill in the general information section. You can only do corrections if the application form is not yet processed, so you have a very small window to do a correction. Also, cost of your visa is not refundable after processing. So it advisable to double-check everything you fill in during step one.
The last step will ask Vietnamese 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 Vietnamese to stay in Kuwait for 90 days, and you have a single entry.
