As a strong measure against false PCR test certificates reported to be carried by arrivals to the country, Deputy Director General for Kuwait International Airport Affairs, Eng. Saleh Al-Fadaghi, said in a special statement to Al-Anba daily that soon outside testing laboratories accredited by the authority can update the results of the coronavirus test on the Kuwait-Traveler platform Kuwait Mosafer.

He mentioned that  the date for the process to start will be announced soon to include more than 20 countries from where more than 90% of passenger traffic comes to Kuwait. He added that other countries will be added during the coming period.

He stated that the new system, which was implemented by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) in cooperation with the Ministry of Health in accrediting outside testing centers, will help to prevent any possible falsification of PCR testing certificates from abroad, as the outside testing centers have been approved by the health authorities in Kuwait and are linked to the platform.
