From Saturday, January 2, Kuwait will reopen all ports and borders, in addition to resuming international flights.

The nation's official news agency says the Health Minister, Sheikh Dr Basel Al Sabah, made the announcement at a cabinet meeting on Monday.

Sheikh Dr Al Sabah underscored that the decision to suspend commercial flights and land crossings remains in place until January 1.

He said the general status of the COVID-19 pandemic was "stable," and noted that no variants of the virus have been found in the nation so far.

Last week, Kuwait suspended entry following concerns about more contagious variants spreading in other countries.
