Return to Kuwait 2023 registration
As of 23 February 2022, the Mosafer registration platform, used for arrival registration of both Kuwaiti nationals and international arrivals, has been suspended.
All returnees in Kuwait can download and install the Shlonik (iOS, Android) application on their personal devices, which will be used only to follow up on COVID-19-positive cases.
For your COVID vaccination credentials, you need to register with Kuwait’s Ministry of Health via the Immune app. If you’re vaccinated with a vaccine recognized in Kuwait, you will receive a ‘green’ status. Those who have been vaccinated with vaccines not approved in Kuwait may also receive the green status if they have also had a third shot or booster shot of an approved vaccine.
A green status on the Immune app is not mandatory to visit public places. All people, regardless of vaccination status, are allowed to access all public places. Wearing masks indoors/outdoors is now optional. However, symptomatic COVID-19 patients and those who have had close contact with a COVID-19 patient must still wear masks.
