Fully vaccinated travelers must have a valid vaccination certificate showing that at least 2 weeks have passed since receiving 2 doses of either Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna, or 1 dose of Johnson and Johnson. Travelers who have been fully vaccinated with Sinopharm, Sinovac, or Sputnik vaccines may travel to Kuwait if they have received at least 1 additional dose of either Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson vaccines. Travelers will not be considered fully vaccinated if more than 9 months had passed since their second vaccination and they had not received a third booster dose.

This applies to all foreign residents aged 16 years and older.

All vaccinated travelers must confirm their vaccination status with Kuwait’s Ministry of Health ‘Immune’ App, or on the Mobile Civil ID app, or through presenting a certificate of vaccination outside Kuwait that includes a readable QR code.
