Kuwait and Saudi Arabia have warned their nationals against travel to Indonesia, as the country has been affected by the Delta variant of Covid-19.
The travel warning was given, as Indonesia is the new epicentre of the new coronavirus in Asia.
According to epidemiologists, Indonesia is one of the countries with highest number of infections. The number of cases per one million people is among the highest in the world.
A recent SPA statement from a Ministry source said that this move indicates the government’s keenness on the safety of nationals who wish to travel abroad.
The ministry also requested the nationals who are already in Indonesia to remain cautious, and keep away from crowded localities witnessing coronavirus spread.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Kuwait called on all nationals to refrain from travelling to Indonesia as a precautionary measure.
In its statement, the Ministry said all Kuwaitis who are in Indonesia should consider leaving immediately in order to ensure their safety. It stated that in case of any help required by any national, they can contact the Kuwait embassy in Jakarta.
