Kuwaiti citizens who are not yet vaccinated against COVID-19 will not be allowed to travel starting May 22.
The announcement was made by the information ministry on Monday, citing a decision by Kuwait’s cabinet.
In a report on Reuters, the ban does not include people in age groups ineligible to receive vaccinations.
The statement also said that non-Kuwaiti residents are still not allowed to enter Kuwait.

Kuwait has registered more than 276,500 coronavirus cases in total.
The Gulf state also suspended trips from India due to the catastrophic coronavirus surge there. (TDT)
