Kuwait will not issue visas to nationals from five countries -- Syria, Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran.

The Kuwaiti government has asked people from these countries to not apply for a visa as they are worried about import of Islamic terrorists, Sputnik International reported.

Kuwait will stop issuing visas of all kinds -- tourism, trade and visitor.

Kuwait's visa ban comes on the heels of US President Donald Trump signing an executive order to ban people coming from seven Muslim-dominated countries -- Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.
