British Ambassador to Kuwait Belinda Lewis said the date for the implementation of the decision on issuing electronic visa for Kuwaitis will be announced within the first weeks of 2023, reports Al-Qabas daily. Lewis made the announcement when asked about the latest developments on exempting Kuwaitis from entry visas to the United Kingdom.
She affirmed that the above mentioned decision will ease procedures for Kuwaitis who travel to the United Kingdom for tourism and other purposes, as they no longer have to go to the British Visa Center to obtain a visa.
She added: “The abolition of the visa requirement for Kuwaiti citizens who make short-term visits to the United Kingdom during 2023 reflects the long ties of friendship, trade and cooperation between the two countries; as well as strengthening rapprochement between them. We are hoping that the decision will enter into force in the near future.”
