Sources confirmed that the approval of the Corona Emergency Committee, headed by the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior and Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs Anas Al-Saleh, is a prerequisite for any government agency wishing to return its stranded staff abroad via “charter” flights.
The sources said that approving the return of individuals from the ten categories identified by the Council of Ministers requires identifying the names and professions required to return and checking them to ensure their validity, and then submitting the request to the committee for approval.
And there are expatriates who wish to leave from Kuwait via charter flights, and depending on the destination they are heading to, the government agency wishing to return some of its staff from the same side can apply for the approval of the committee, so that they can return.
There are no prohibitions or conditions for using charter flights to transport nationals of countries covered by the direct flight ban to Kuwait that wish to leave to their country, subject to approval by the Corona Emergency Committee and that approval of charter flights that will transport those concerned directly from their countries to Kuwait means approval of the recommendation. The first for civil aviation is to spend the institutional quarantine period inside Kuwait.
