Karachi (Staff Report): Pakistan`s ambassador in Kuwait confirmed that Kuwait hasn’t placed any visa ban on Pakistani citizens.

Pakistani diplomat Ghulam Dastagir said that news on social media regarding the ban is baseless, further adding that same news had sprung up in 2011.

Previously, a local newspaper claimed that Kuwait has banned nationals from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan including tourism, visit and trade visas as well as visas sponsored by spouses.

They attributed the blanket visa ban to the “difficult security conditions in five countries”
