The Kuwait government has updated its immigration regulations and the latest information can be called good news for foreign nationals who are still staying and living in the country. The information states that there will be a Kuwait visa extension available for foreigners who have a current valid visa. The Kuwaiti government will allow them to extend the duration of their visas, and their stay, automatically so there will be fewer people going to Kuwaiti government offices and requesting visa extensions from there.
There are no additional announcements so, at the moment at least, the program is expected to be terminated on July 31st, 2020. But as long as the program is still in force, its stipulations will be a big help to foreigners in Kuwait since they will not be required to submit documents or pay additional fees to process the Kuwait visa extension, provided their visas are still valid. They will still be able to prolong their stay in the country.
But for those who still don’t have a visa and want to enter Kuwait, you will need to apply for one for the government to grant you entry, except for citizens of five countries who can enter Kuwait without having to apply for a visa.
There are several countries whose citizens are eligible to apply for an eVisa. A Kuwait eVisa is, in essence, a document that you get when you pre-register yourself with Kuwaiti immigration. Once you get to Kuwait, the eVisa will be replaced with a visa on arrival which will then be inspected so they can let you enter. Applying for an eVisa is more preferred than going to any Kuwaiti embassy and requesting a visa there since the traveler will avoid wasting time and other resources. All you need to do is request the eVisa from the iVisa.com platform, this platform is very easy and simple so it won't take you long to do it. Once you finish completing your application, you just have to wait for the document to be sent to your email.
