Kuwait will resume commercial flights with India and Egypt, among other nations, while complying to COVID-19 procedures put in place by a ministerial committee, according to Reuters. Flights to Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Nepal will also resume as a result of the ruling.
On the recommendation of health officials, the Gulf state has suspended commercial flights from a number of nations, including India. Kuwait's directorate general of civil aviation announced in April that all passengers travelling from India, whether directly or via another nation, will be denied entry unless they had spent at least 14 days outside of India.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) overturned a restriction on passengers from India and five other nations entering the country on August 5th. While travel restrictions from India to the UAE remain in force, those Indians who have a valid residency card and have been completely vaccinated at least 14 days prior to departure are exempted.
Passengers travelling from countries where flights have been suspended will be able to transit via NCEMA airports beginning Thursday if they submit negative PCR tests taken 72 hours prior to departure, according to the National Emergency and Crisis Management Authority (NCEMA) on Twitter.
The body added that final destination authorisation would be required, and that UAE departure airports would set up separate lounges for transiting travellers.
When the second wave of Covid-19 swept the country on April 22, international flights from India to Dubai were suspended. Passengers were, however, allowed to travel from the Gulf countries to India.
