KUWAIT HAS imposed indefinite travel restrictions from more South Asian countries as the region is witnessing a rapid surge in the coronavirus pandemic.

In its fresh announcement, the Gulf nation said it would suspend all flights from Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal and bar the entry of travellers from the countries until further notice.

However, cargo flights are not included in the suspension, a Daily Mirror report said on Monday (10). Those who seek to enter Kuwait will have to take detours via other countries where they should stay for at least 14 days.

Last month, the country had announced the suspension of all flights from India where the pandemic assumed grim proportions. It also said last week that it would ban its citizens who have not been vaccinated against Covid-19 from travelling abroad from May 22.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka is staring at enforcement of inter-provincial travel restrictions to contain the spread of the virus.

Although no decision has been taken on clamping a nationwide lockdown, army commander general Shavendra Silva said movement of people between provinces will be restricted and only essential services will be allowed, the Daily Mirror report said.
