Being an aviation enthusiast, I love to fly and review different airlines. As I never had the pleasure to fly with Kuwait Airways, I'm considering to book a trip LHR-KWI-LHR for the sole purpose of flying on their aircraft. Being a Swiss citizen, can someone confirm that I do not need a visa for Kuwait, if doing an airside transfer (hence don't enter the country)? Or is a transit without visa (TWOV) only possible when flying to a third country? I would like to book the following itinerary:
KU102 LHR1635 - 0050+1KWI
KU103 KWI0545 - 1000LHR
So my stay at Kuwait airport would be approximately 5 hours before heading back to London. Otherwise it might be an option to obtain a visa upon arrival, which is possible for Swiss citizens according to their homepage. But it might look strange and raise questions for such a short stay.
