Indian Embassy has been organizing functions to celebrate the country’s Independence Day with the participation of the Indian community, Pravasis, and friends of India in Kuwait for many years. This year, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and to follow local government’s guidelines regarding social distancing and other related health regulations, there will be no public function at the Embassy premises on Independence Day. However, Embassy will be livestreaming the flag hoisting and delivery of the speech by the Indian Ambassador.

Esteemed Community Members, Pravasis, and friends of India are requested not to visit Embassy on Independence Day, 2020 i.e. 15th August, 2020 and watch the celebration at their home.
