On Monday, H.E. Dr. Adarsh Swaika, the Ambassador of India to Kuwait, officially inaugurated a new Indian Consular Application Centre (ICAC) located in Jahra, Kuwait.

The new center will also be managed by the embassy’s outsourcing partner, BLS International. The Jahra ICAC will be the fourth such ICAC in Kuwait, with the other three located in Kuwait City, Fahaheel, and Jleeb.

The Consular, passport, and visa services will be available at building No. 27, Al Khalifa building, second floor, offices 3 & 14, block No. 93, Jahra, Kuwait. The centre will operate from Saturday to Thursday from 9 AM to 2 PM.

The Jahra ICAC represents another step towards facilitating Indian visas for Kuwaitis and providing various consular services for Indian nationals, including Amnesty-related travel documents, residing in Jahra and its neighboring areas up to Abdali.

The new facility is expected to streamline the application process, reduce waiting times, and ensure a seamless experience for all applicants. It is part of the Government of India’s steadfast commitment to making public services more accessible, hassle-free, and technology-driven.

It’s worth noting that the number of Kuwaiti visitors to India has been increasing over the years. The embassy typically issues multiple-entry Indian tourist visas within a day to Kuwaiti and third-country nationals. In 2023, the embassy issued approximately 10,000 visas.
