    I have an Australian citizen who is travelling to Luxor via Kuwait. The traveller has a 2h35m stopover at Kuwait Airport. Does this traveller require a Visa on arrival, or as the traveller is on a connecting flight to Luxor, will it not be necessary.

    I am a Filipino Citizen but is working in Saudi Arabia and holding a Saudi Residence Visa (Iqamma) with family (wife and son). I plan to drive to Kuwait from Saudi. Is it ok to enter Kuwait and get a Kuwait visa at the immigration?

    Hi Rene-
    Just realise that if you're planning to drive from Saudi to Kuwait and you're driving a vehicle that's been financed by the bank (and you're still paying off the loan), you'll need special permission from your sponsor to leave the country. You'll also need to make sure you get your exit visas in order beforehand.

  • I am South AFrican. I read what I need from your website, but I do not understand where to find this visa from the transport company, If I am visiting, do I really need a sponsor? and how do they actually get an original visa. I am a bit confused at what I need. I am only visiting less than a week.

    Your help will be greatly appreciated

    Are you going to Kuwajt as a tourist or on business.
    If your a tourist the airline you are travelling with will assist you with the visa.
    If your on business the company your visiting will arrange the visa.
    Any queries call the Kuwait Embassy in Pretoria
