e-Visa Application

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.

Visa Application via Host Partner (AUM)

Delegates who are not eligible for an e-Visa can apply for a visa through our summit host partner (American University of the Middle East – AUM) prior to arrival at the Kuwait International Airport.

Upon registering for this event, delegates will need to submit a scanned copy of their passport and academic degree to [email protected]

Please note that when applying for a Kuwait visa or e-visa, your passport validity must exceed six months (for GCC members, your residency must exceed 6 months).
