The Kuwait Ministry of Interior has automatically extended all tourist visas and residencies until November 30, 2020.  This extension applies to individuals in Kuwait whose visitor visas and residencies were set to expire on or before August 31, 2020.  No action nor payment is necessary for the extension to be applied.

U.S. citizens in Kuwait are recommended to work with their sponsors or employers to renew their residencies or adjust their legal status to an appropriate residency category, if eligible, before November 30.  Otherwise, individuals on tourist visas should prepare to depart Kuwait before November 30.
