Kuwait indefinitely suspends all commercial flights from India

NEW DELHI: Amid rising Covid cases in India, Kuwait on Saturday suspended all commercial flights from the country for an indefinite period with immediate effect.
In a circular, Kuwait’s DGCA said Indians can arrive there from some other country only if they have stayed outside India for atleast 14 days.
“Kuwaiti citizens, their first degree relatives — spouse and children — and their domestic workers are exempt (from this restriction). Operation of air freight flights will continue from India. This circular will be effective from 12.01 am (local Kuwait time) on Saturday (April 24) until further notice,” the circular says.

“Bahrain has announced revised international arrival procedures from April 27, 2021. All passengers arriving from India must carry negative PCR test report with a QR code conducted within 48 hours before departure. All other existing travel-related procedures remain unchanged,” Indian embassy in Bahrain tweeted.
This requirement is for all passengers above the age of six going to Bahrain from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
Several countries like UK, Canada and UAE have barred entry of travellers from India due to the massive surge in Covid cases in the country.
Others like Singapore have tightened entry norms for Indians. Indonesia has decided it will not issue visas to foreigners who have been in India in the past 14 days.
