I am travelling from Delhi to New York. I will be transiting via Kuwait, with a stopover of 1 hour 40 minute. Do I need any transit visa for Kuwait?

I have an Indian passport. I will not leave the airport.

    What's your passport? How long are you staying for? Do you plan on leaving the terminal (don't think so but still worth asking)?
