KWI Transit?

Tue Feb 17, 2009 11:12 pm

Looking at a flt connection via KWI- Would arrive KWI on Kuwait Airlines from Cairo, then have a 2-3hr layover before transferring to Delta's ATL flight. Is this possible or do you need any kind of transit paperwork??? Any help would be great!!

If you are a US citizen, you do not (I think) need a transit visa for Kuwait. I transited through Kuwait once on my Namibian passport whilst doing an LHR-KWI-MCT routing, and being a dual US/Namibia passport holder, I look to use whichever makes the trip easier, and determined that in either case, a transit visa was not required.

A quick check of international travel requirements on Delta.com states that US citizens do not need a visa for a transfer of less than 8 hours if they have proof of a continuing ticket.

No need for visa if you are transferring, However, if you would like to enter Kuwait you can obtain an entry visa at KWI visa issuance counter since you are a U.S. citizen.
Enjoy the trip.
