Kuwait Visa – How To Apply For A Kuwaiti Visa

GENERIC VISA INFORMATIONInterested in traveling to Kuwait in the near future? You will need to obtain a Kuwait visa in order to travel to Kuwait. As an American citizen, you will be able to obtain your Kuwait visa upon your arrival at the airport in Kuwait. Regarding your passport, you should ensure that you have no trails of previous travel to Israel or any onward travel to Israel.

You will not have to go through the procedure of applying for a visa to Kuwait since it will be issued to American citizens upon arrival. However, you should ensure that your passport is up to date before you travel to Kuwait.

Check passport validity – All travelers to Kuwait will need a passport that is valid for at least 90 days after they depart Kuwait. The ideal amount of validity time that should be left on your passport when you depart a country should be roughly 6 months.

Blank visa pages – Kuwait along with many other countries require at least two blank visa pages in your passport book when you arrive and depart Kuwait. This will permit any necessary stamps that will need to be stamped in your passport during your travel.

Transit Visa – Sometimes a transit visa is required when traveling to a country on a connecting flight. Countries that your fight stops at overseas may need to see a transit visa when connecting flights.

In conclusion, it is important to note that you will need to check to make sure that your existing passport has enough blank pages to accommodate any stamps and stickers that may be necessary upon arrival. Most experts recommend that you keep at least two full blank pages in your passport for this reason.
