April 21, 2022: Travel Advisory: Kuwait Travel Advisory Lowered to Level 1
April 21, 2022

The Department of State has revised the Kuwait Travel Advisory to Level 1: Exercise Normal Precautions.  Please visit the link above for details, as well as the U.S. Embassy Kuwait website’s U.S. Citizen Services page for more information.

The Department of State has no greater responsibility than the safety and security of U.S. citizens overseas.  Given the increases in international travel, the availability of effective COVID-19 mitigation measures, and recently announced changes to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) COVID-19 Travel Health Notice (THN) process, the State Department Travel Advisory levels will no longer automatically correlate with the CDC COVID-19 THN level.  However, if the CDC raises a country’s COVID-19 THN to a Level 4, the State Department’s Travel Advisory for that country will also be raised to a Level 4: Do Not Travel due to COVID-19.

Although conditions have recently improved, the COVID-19 pandemic is not over.  We continue to advise travelers to consider COVID-19 conditions and restrictions at their destinations when considering international travel. To see the latest State Department Travel Advisories for any country in the world, visit travel.state.gov.  We encourage U.S. citizens who are considering international travel this summer to check their passport expiration date and act now to renew or apply for the first time.  Keep in mind many countries require passports to have at least six months’ remaining validity for entry.  For information on U.S. passports, please visit the U.S. Embassy Kuwait website’s U.S. Citizen Services page.
