The move, which was taken by the Kuwaiti Cabinet, has come into effect on Saturday (April 24) and will continue until further notice. It also bars the entry of travelers coming from India through another country unless they have stayed for 14 days in the transit country.

Kuwaiti citizens, their first-degree relatives, and their domestic workers are exempted while cargo services will remain unaffected, according to the statement.
