No i don't think so, currently no commercial flights allowed to land at Kuwait with expats (Non-Kuwaitis) on board, only Kuwaitis can return to Kuwait thats why i thought either Kuwaitis coming from Pakistan or some cargo stuff being imported like fresh vegetables/fruits/meat etc :-k

Pakistan should not allow any passengers coming in till end of April. China even with a 2 month lock down has once again suspended international flights as they were bringing in covid 19 infected passengers.

Pakistan should extend the travel ban till end of April 2020 and first worry about bringing infection rate to zero.
