The people in the tourism and travel sector stressed as soon as the holiday was announced, the pace of reservations picked up significantly, and expected to reach the ‘fully booked’ levels bringing to the level of before the pandemic, which some called ‘post-Corona awakening’, especially since travel options start from 100 dinars for trips to nearby destinations, including performing Umrah for 3 days during that holiday.

Al-Sulaiten stressed the easing of precautionary measures by the health authorities in Kuwait, foremost of which is allowing the end to quarantine upon arrival, on the condition of conducting a negative PCR test, stimulated citizens and residents to travel with confidence, especially after the previous decision to quarantine upon return constituted a burden on their shoulders before canceling it.
