Kuwait bans visa for 5 Islamic nations

Published on : Friday, February 3, 2017

KuwaitKuwait has banned the issuance of visas for the national citizens of Islamic countries including Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq and Syria.


Last Friday, US President Donald Trump had banned seven Muslim-majority countries.


The government of Kuwait has announced that would-be immigrants from the banned countries should not apply for visas from Kuwait. It has resorted to this decision since it is anxious about the possible migration of radical Islamic terrorists, as reported by the media.


The executive order signed by Trump said that the refugees all across the world would not be granted US entry for a period of 120 days.


In addition, he added that all the immigration from so-called countries that have been associated with terrorism would be suspended for 90 days. The countries that have been included in this list comprise Yemen, Somalia, Libya, Sudan, Iran and Iraq.


Kuwait was the only country that prohibited the entry of Syrian nationals before the executive action of Donald Trump.


Earlier, Kuwait City had issued a suspension of visas for all Syrians in the year 2011. In 2015, a group of militant had bombed a Shia mosque that claimed the lives of 27 Kuwaiti nationals.  A 2016 survey conducted by Expat Insider had ranked Kuwait as one of the worst country in the world for expatriates, mainly because of its strict cultural laws.

Kuwait is member of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).


This country has become involved in tensions between the GCC and Iran.
