After seeing a surge in Omicron cases, Kuwait has made COVID-19 booster doses mandatory for all international travelers wishing to enter the country. A booster shot is being given to those who have completed nine months of the second dose of the vaccine. This order will be effective from 26 December i.e. Sunday.

The Kuwait Civil Aviation Authority said in a statement that if a person has not received a booster shot after nine months of vaccination, he or she will not be considered fully vaccinated. 

Kuwaiti citizens will also not be allowed to leave the country if they do not get a booster shot. The order also mentioned that travellers wishing to enter the Gulf country will have to show their negative PCR test reports not older than 48 hours on arrival.

If a passenger fails to show a PCR test report or is not vaccinated with a booster shot, they will not be accepted at Kuwait International Airport. Not only this, for those who do not have a PCR test, home quarantine is mandatory for 10 days.
