KUWAIT CITY: Implementing the decision to allow passengers from the banned countries to enter Kuwait after spending 14 days of quarantine in a transit country is facing difficulties due to the limited passenger seats and cancellation of thousands of travel reservations by some airlines, reports Al-Qabas daily.
This is due to the Cabinet’s decision to limit the number of expatriates entering the country by banning several countries and setting the operating capacity for arrival flights at 35 passengers per flight.
Some expatriates, several hours prior to the implementation of the decision, had booked new “transit” tickets and crossed through several stations, most notably Ethiopia and Saudi Arabia, in order to return to Kuwait.
The cost of tickets for expatriates traveling through transit countries reached about KD 850.
