Legal Advice

Legal advice is the giving of a professional or formal opinion regarding the substance or procedure of the law in relation to a particular factual situation. The provision of legal advice will often involve analyzing a set of facts and advising a person to take a specific course of action based on the applicable law.

Since 1 August 2021 foreigners with valid residency have been allowed to enter Kuwait. You must be fully vaccinated with a vaccine approved in Kuwait (2 doses of either Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna, or 1 dose of Johnson and Johnson). This applies to all foreign residents aged 16 and above. Confirmation of your vaccination status (this must be “green”) needs to be registered with Kuwait’s Ministry of Health via the ‘Immune’ App or on the Mobile Civil ID app, or through presenting a certificate of vaccination outside Kuwait that includes a readable QR code. Kuwait also considers as fully vaccinated those who have had two doses of vaccine not approved in Kuwait if they have also had one dose of an approved vaccine, see ‘Demonstrating your COVID-19 status’. On 20 December, Kuwait announced that from 2 January 2022, they would not consider individuals as being fully vaccinated if more than 9 months had passed since their second vaccination and they had not received a third booster dose.

From 4 January 2022, you must present a negative PCR test taken less than 72 hours prior to your arrival in Kuwait. You must download the Shlonik app before boarding. From 11 January, passengers who have been infected with Coronavirus in the 28 days of their arrival are permitted to enter the state of Kuwait after spending the appropriate period in isolation:

  • Vaccinated passengers: can submit a positive (PCR) test certificate between 7-28 days prior to arrival
  • Non-vaccinated passengers: can submit a positive (PCR) test certificate between 10-28 prior to arrival

From 18 January, you will have to quarantine at home for seven days on arrival, although quarantine can end if the PCR test carried out upon arrival proves negative.

Electronic Visas are now available for fully vaccinated individuals. Visit the Ministry of Interior website for more information. Applicants will be able to check the status of their application before travelling and the visas will be issued upon arrival.

Please advise the formalities for transferring residence from Visa 22 to Visa 18. I want to know how much time it will take to transfer my residence to Visa 18 if I am presently working as Visa 22. Also, please advise the educational qualification as I need for transferring the same.

Name withheld

Answer: We begin by cautioning you that it is an offence under the law to work while you are on Visa 22 which is strictly a family and not a work visa. Note therefore, that both you and the company you are working for are breaking the law and will suffer the consequences if you are caught by any of the law enforcement agencies. With regard to formalities, the company representative, who will undertake the transfer processes on your behalf, knows what to do and the time frame within which this can be accomplished depends on how effective the Mandoub or company representative is. With regard to the educational qualification needed for transfer, all that we can say is that if you don’t hold a university degree, you need to have stayed in Kuwait for at least one year before you can transfer from Visa 22 to 18. If you are a graduate, however, you can effect the transfer at any point in time so far as you land a job
