Electronic Visa for Kuwait

on 28 March 2021

Kuwait Tourist Visa

The electronic visa (eVisa) for Kuwait is available for travelers of a number of nationalities who plan to visit the Gulf state as tourists.

The Kuwait eVisa allows the holder a single entry to the country and enables them to stay for up to 90 days.

It can be obtained via a simple online eVisa application form. The foreign traveler must answer a series of questions and enter some basic information such as their contact details and passport number.

This usually takes a matter of minutes to complete and can be done from the traveler’s home or office, which means that they do not have to arrange an appointment at a Kuwaiti embassy to get their visa.
