“Therefore, we are keen on cooperating with the relevant official authorities to facilitate the movement of travel by enhancing passenger confidence, through platforms such as Kuwait Traveler, and we focus on safer and simpler electronic solutions that can help in the local and global recovery of travel,” he added.
Al-Houry stressed that, after obtaining the certificate of the Corona vaccine, travelers can rest assured of the complete confidentiality of their personal data and have the option to share their personal records when needed.
