Indian embassy in Kuwait temporarily halts online registration for repatriation

The Embassy of India in Kuwait has temporarily suspended the online registration for Indian nationals in the GCC state who wish to avail repatriation services.

In an advisory, the embassy said the service would be halted from Friday, May 15 and will “resume after initial registrations have been accommodated”.
“However, requests of medical emergency, pregnancy and those related to death may continue to be sent by email to the embassy only at for necessary examination/processing,” the advisory added.

The embassy also stressed that it is the only designated authority to select and prioritise travel requests and is not responsible for “unauthorised assurances accepted by intending travellers”.

It added that airline Air India is the sole agency for booking/issuance/sale of tickets for all the repatriation flights.
India began its massive ‘Vande Bharat Mission’ earlier this month to evacuate Indians stranded abroad, after it closed off its international airspace in late March. The first phase has been completed with phase two now underway.

In Kuwait, over 70,000 people have already registered for the service, while only 879 were repatriated in the first phase, local daily Kuwait Times said.
