Kuwait City: A Kuwait Airways flight carrying domestic workers from India to Kuwait was canceled today.
After arriving at Chennai Airport passengers from different states
The passengers were disappointed.
The terms of the air bubble agreement between the two countries have not yet been amended.
Travel permit with special permission from India to Kuwait as per the terms of the contract is not yet confirmed by Indian officials.
The flight scheduled to depart from India today for domestic workers was canceled as the contract was not amended.
Only Kuwaiti national airlines are allowed to bring in domestic workers. At the last cabinet meeting, the Kuwaiti government allowed domestic workers to enter directly.
Preference is given to workers from India and the Philippines.
The Kuwaiti government is considering lifting the direct entry ban on countries, including India, as the Covid-19 epidemic is under control in the country.
However, if the terms of the current Air Bubble Agreement are amended, Indian passengers will have access to Kuwait soon.
