All passengers must also undergo a 14-day quarantine on arrival to Kuwait and a negative PCR test result before departure.
Emirates Airline has announced that it is not accepting non-Kuwaiti passengers on flights from Dubai to Kuwait, from February 7 to February 20, 2021. Customers holding tickets with Kuwait as a final destination will not be accepted for travel at their point of origin.
