You must be eligible – This means that you need to be a citizen of a country for which Kuwait issues e-Visas. At the moment, Kuwait releases visas for citizens of the following countries: Andorra, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bhutan, Brunei, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Canada, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Laos, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, China, Turkey, Ukraine, United kingdom, United States, Vatican, Vietnam and all countries member of the Gulf Cooperation Council (Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates)

You must have all the required documents – You do not need much to receive the visa. All you need is a valid passport, you need to make some digital copies of your passport, a means of payment, and if you are from a GCC country, you need to have a GCC residency card. If all you have is a temporary travel document, you still need to acquire a passport. The means of payment can differ. iVisa accepts credit or a debit card, but if you have a Paypal account, you can use that as well. As for the GCC residency card, it needs to indicate that you have been a GCC resident for at least six months. Anything lower than that makes you ineligible.

The Kuwait evisa is valid for 30 days before entry – After you apply for the evisa and receive it, the document will maintain its validity for 30 days. After those 30 days expire, you need to apply for a new one. However, iVisa will take into account your time of arrival in Kuwait so that you do not have to worry about that aspect. All you have to do is to select the date of departure. For example, if you apply 40 days before leaving for Kuwait, iVisa will keep the application on hold and process it at the right moment, which means it will process it ten days after you apply. That way the evisa will still be valid when you actually go to Kuwait.

The Kuwait visa is valid 90 days after entry – Once you get into Kuwait, you can stay there up to 90 days. You need to return after that period. Also, the Kuwait evisa provides a single entry.

Your weekend is not the same as the Kuwait weekend – Weekends in Kuwait are held on Fridays and Saturdays. That is important for a number of reasons. For example, if you apply on Thursday night and choose the Super Rush processing (12 hours), you will not receive the evisa in the desired timeframe. You will receive it Sunday. Not only that you will pay extra, but you will not receive the visa when you want. Timezones apply, so make sure to keep that in mind.
