"MUSLIM BAN" - Kuwait Introduces Visa Ban on Citizens from five Muslim-majority countries.
"MUSLIM BAN" - Kuwait Introduces Visa Ban on Citizens from five Muslim-majority countries. (Basnews).
Kuwaiti government introduced a US-like travel ban on passport holders of five Muslim-majority countries, according Gulf state.
The Kuwaiti new blanket ban includes Syrians, Iraqis, Iranians, Pakistanis and Afghans.
The ban is in place and citizens from those countries are not able to obtain visit, tourism or trade Kuwaiti visas.
The Kuwaiti state ascribes the travel restrictions to the instability and the existence of terrorist groups in those countries and that the ban would be lifted once the security situation improves.
US President Donald Trump has recently signed an executive order that includes a 90-day entry ban on citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries including Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Hmmm.....Those Damn Islamophobes.
