Armenia unveils visa-free travel for Kuwaitis

Citizens of Kuwait will be able to travel to Armenia visa-free and stay in the country for up to 180 days during the year, according to a decision approved by the government on Friday, May 13.

The Ministry of Economy argues that the move will serve as a serious incentive for increasing tourist flow from Kuwait to Armenia and boost business activity.

"Perhaps the liberalization of the visa regime will play a decisive role in the resumption of a direct Kuwait-Yerevan flight, which, in turn, will greatly simplify contacts and mutual visits," the Ministry said in a document submitted for the Cabinet's consideration.

The pandemic-related bans have significantly limited the dynamics of bilateral cooperation and sharply reduced the number of mutual business visits. Now Kuwait has almost lifted the coronavirus restrictions, which has created favorable conditions for the resumption of mutual visits.
