My Canadian study permit was approved and I have a visa for it in my passport. I have transit one in Kuwait and one in Frankfurt. Will I need a transit visa for Kuwait? It's a one hour stop. Doha to Kuwait to Frankfurt to calgary I believe my visa will be enough to transit through Frankfurt.

    @DumbCoder: I don't think this is a duplicate of the one you propose, as this one asks specifically about Kuwait while the other question was marked as a duplicate of Schengen-related questions. And since site policy is to ask multiple questions in separate posting, I would say that the OP is doing things correctly. Aug 29 '17 at 16:28
  • @DumbCoder "Do I need a transit visa in Kuwait?" is absolutely not a duplicate of "Do I need a Schengen transit visa?" How is that even remotely the same question? Please retract your close vote. Aug 30 '17 at 20:40

According to Timatic, Kuwait allows Pakistani nationals to transit without visa, so long as they hold an onward ticket:

Transit - Kuwait (KW)


Visa required.

TWOV (Transit Without Visa):

Holders of onward tickets for a max. transit time of 24 hours. In case of transit connections beyond 8 hours, passengers must remain airside and be accommodated in the airport transit hotel.

Warning: Passengers with an article-14 visa in their passport are not allowed to re-enter Kuwait with this visa even if it is still valid. The article-14 visa is an exit permit.
