Kuwait’s Ministry of Communications has issued another circular stating that in order to contribute to the economic stability and to mitigate the effects of the spread of COVID-19, the Ministry of health recommends allowing ships carrying goods from the Republic of Korea, Italy, Thailand, Singapore, Japan, China and Hong Kong to berth.

The Circular No (3) / 2020 EXCEPTION 2 dated 26 February 2020 notes that the emphasis remains on prohibiting direct contact with the crew and preventing them from disembarking from the ship for two weeks from the date of their departure from the affected ports.
