Kuwait is expected soon to resume issuing visas for Lebanese amid a thaw in ties between Lebanon and the Gulf countries after months of strains, a Al Qabas newspaper has reported.

Earlier this month, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia sent back their ambassadors to Lebanon after withdrawing them last October in a sharp diplomatic row with Beirut.

The return of the Kuwaiti and Saudi envoys to Beirut is seen as signalling an end to the crisis with Lebanon, which has been roiled by economic woes in recent months.

Al Qabas newspaper, citing security sources, said the residency affairs departments across Kuwait are ready to receive applications from the Lebanese once a government decision is made to resume issuing visas for them. Such visas have been on hold for around five months.

To begin with, the visa re-issuance for Lebanese will begin with trade and official visas to be followed by labour visas, the sources said.

“Then will come family, tourism and dependency visas. The State Security Service will conduct review and verification of any type of visas before it is issued as was previously the case,” the sources said.
