Health Insurance Mandatory for Visitors, exempts some

A law issued amending law number 1/1999 pertaining collecting health insurance from non-Kuwaitis and fees for the health services they receive.

The sources told Kuwait Times that the new amendment will mandate expats visiting Kuwait to purchase health insurance either through specialized companies or by purchasing revenue stamps to be affixed on the visa from Kuwaiti embassies abroad or border exits.

The amendment, which has not set a specific fee so far, exempts some visitors like those arriving for a day or two on official visits, official delegations and diplomats.
