President Rodrigo Duterte can be exempted from Kuwait’s travel ban on the Philippines, Malacañang said Tuesday after the chief executive said he would visit the Gulf state.

While no date has been set, Duterte “will pursue” his plans to visit Kuwait, his spokesman Salvador Panelo told reporters.

Panelo made the remark even after Kuwait suspended flights between the Gulf state and 7 countries, including the Philippines as a precautionary measure against the COVID-19 outbreak.

“Pwede namang pag-usapan ‘yan government-to-government. They can always exempt the President,” he said.

“Halimbawa, if I call somebody or the ambassador calls the head of Kuwait at sinabing the President desires to go there. ‘O sige ayos.’ Sila-sila lang naman mag-uusap diyan,” he said.

Duterte on Monday night said he would visit Kuwait and ask for the death penalty for those behind the killing of domestic helper Jeanelyn Villavende.

The President said he would ask the Kuwaiti government to “cut off the heads” of the migrant workers’ killers.

“But in the Middle East, while I talk my heart bleeds. Kaya pupunta talaga ako sa Kuwait. I have to go to Kuwait,” Duterte said during a late-night press briefing.

“And if they can follow it through in accordance with their laws, I would ask for…I will ask for the maximum. I want their executioner to cut off the heads of those who are responsible for the death of the Filipina.”
