Kuwait has banned direct commercial flight operations with Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka until further notice amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Kuwait's civil aviation department made the announcement yesterday. Cargo flights will remain out of the purview of the suspension.
Expatriates of the four countries have been barred from entering Kuwait without staying in quarantine in a third country for at least 14 days.
A previous notification from the civil aviation department said only domestic workers and health workers were allowed to enter Kuwait on condition of a 14-day quarantine in a third country and after following all necessary health guidelines, including RT-PCR tests.
