Kuwait: Health Insurance to Become Mandatory for Tourists

Kuwait’s National Assembly has approved a draft law which will mean tourists visiting the country will have to have a health insurance policy which covers the duration of their stay there. The aim is to ensure tourists do not receive medical treatment in the country. A visit visa cannot be granted until the Interior Ministry has seen the health insurance policy documentation. The amount of coverage has not been specified in the law, but this is likely to be clarified when the Ministry prepares the bylaws to implement the law which is expected within the next two to three months.
