Kuwait bans visas for Pakistan and four other countries – The Express Tribune . . KUWAIT: Kuwait banned nationals from five countries including Pakistan from entering the Gulf coutry, according to immigration sources quoted by Kuwaiti media. The ban, imposed on Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan, includes suspending all tourism, visit and trade visas as well as visas sponsored by spouses, the media reported. The ban was attributed to theâ€œdifficult security conditions in the five countriesâ€ and to â€œthe remarkably increasing tendency of nationals from the five countries to apply for visas to bring in relatives who faced or could face arrest by the local authorities to Kuwait,â€ said the reports. The sources said the authorities insisted that no exception in the visa application will be welcomed. However, they also mentioned that the ban was temporary and would be lifted once the security situation gets stabilised.
