YASSER AL-ZAYYAT / AFP

Kuwait has suspended all direct commercial flights coming from India, effective April 24.

The country's directorate general of civil aviation said early on Saturday in a tweet that the suspension will continue until further notice.

The move was on the instructions of health authorities after an evaluation of the global coronavirus status.

All passengers arriving from India either directly or via another country will be banned from entering unless they have spent at least 14 days out of India, the statement said.

Kuwaiti citizens, their first degree relatives and their domestic workers will be allowed to enter. Cargo flights will also continue between the countries.
