In a bid to halt the spread of COVID-19, authorities in Kuwait have opted to temporarily close all cafés in the country.

The decision applies to cafes within markets, shopping malls, fuel stations and rest stations on the road. Similar to the UAE, delivery services will still be allowed to operate, though only in curfew hours decided by Kuwait Municipality.


Services from 5am to 7pm are permitted, though anyone caught breaking the curfew faces up to three years in jail and a fine of up to KD10,000 (US$32,000).

Across the region, government officials have been choosing to pause dine-in operations in venues.

The UAE on March 25 went delivery-only for a period of two weeks while in Oman restaurants have been shut until further notice.

In Saudi Arabia, restaurants and cafés are only offering delivery and in Lebanon all restaurants have closed, putting an estimated 150,000 jobs at risk.

No indication was given on how long Kuwait’s closure policy will last.
