Delegates who are GCC nationals can enter the State of Kuwait with their valid Civil ID and do not require a visa.
GCC countries include Bahrain, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sultanate of Oman, and United Arab Emirates.
For delegates who hold passports from eligible countries for Kuwait e-Visa (as well as GCC residents, regardless of their citizenship), the visa application has been simplified and can be done online.
Please note that the e-Visa issuance duration can vary from a few hours to a few days. Upon issuance, the e-Visa will be valid for entering to Kuwait within a month from issuance.
We recommend that delegates start their e-Visa application process from February 2023 onwards (prior to the Summit) to avoid any possible lapse in entry period to Kuwait.
