Srinagar,Febrbury 2 2017: Pakistan's ambassador in Kuwait on Wednesday clarified that Kuwait hasn’t placed any visa ban on Pakistani nationals.

The news on social media about the ban is baseless, reported Geo TV while quoting the ambassador Ghulam Dastagir as saying.

"Same news had sprung up in 2011," he said. 

Earlier, a newspaper claimed that Kuwait has banned nationals from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan. It claimed that the ban included on tourism, visit and trade visas as well as visas sponsored by spouses.

They attributed the blanket visa ban to the “difficult security conditions in five countries”( reported Geo TV)
