The Italian Ambassador to Kuwait, HE Carlo Balducci, revealed about 1,000 Kuwaitis obtained a 5-year multi-entry tourist visa in the first two weeks since the approval of the “Cascade” visa procedures.

The Italian envoy told Al-Qabas, that the number of visas will increase after the adoption of the “Cascade” visa system, pointing out that this is what prompted the embassy to choose a larger place to accommodate the increasing numbers of those wishing to travel to Italy.

He pointed out that the time required to obtain a visa for Kuwaiti citizens does not exceed 48 hours, indicating that there is no change in the prices for issuing a “Cascade” visa, as it is a system to facilitate procedures for Kuwaitis and not to raise prices.

Regarding the date of the strategic dialogue meeting between Kuwait and Italy, Balducci said that the date of the strategic dialogue meeting has not been determined yet.

On another level, Balducci revealed that Italian Foreign Ministry Undersecretary Maria Tripodi will arrive in Kuwait next Tuesday, October 3, for a two-day visit, and will depart on Thursday, October 5.
