In 2016, the Kuwaiti Government launched the Kuwait Online Visa, which is an electronic travel authorization. This system was created to simplify and expedite the visa application process, making it easier and faster to apply and consequently obtain a visa to travel to Kuwait.

You don't need to send your passport to an embassy or go for an interview. The Kuwait Government issues the visas online and iVisa will send you this document in PDF format by email.

Applying through iVisa will allow you access to your own personal online account where you can easily track the status and approval of your visa.
