Kuwait Bans Visa for five Muslim Countries

Kuwait has reportedly suspended the issuance of Visas for five Muslim Majority Countries of Iraq, Pakistan, Syria, Afghanistan and Iran.

Earlier US President Donald Trump ordered the banning of seven Muslim Majority countries last Friday. Now, Kuwaiti Government has told would-be migrants from the five banned nations to not apply for visas, as it is worried about the possible migration of radical Islamic terrorists.

An executive order signed by Trump says Refugees from all over the world will be denied US entry for 20 days while all immigration from the countries with terrorism concerns will be suspended for 90 days.
Kuwait is the only nation to prohibit the entry of Syrian Nationals prior to Trump’s executive action.

As a member of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), Kuwait has become embroiled in escalated tensions between the GCC and Iran. Washington has been a guarantor of GCC security since the early 1990s, according to a Congressional Research Service brief.
