The Kuwait government authorities have recommended vaccination and COVID testing as an essential criterion to curb the spread of the virus. PCR tests involve swabbing your nose or throat to detect the virus. If you have symptoms of coronavirus (fever, new cough, loss or change in taste/smell), it is important that you get a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test.

You can book an appointment at any of the RT-PCR testing facilities in Kuwait. Here is a comprehensive list of hospitals and medical centres in Kuwait providing this facility.
