HE Mr. Ambassador Abdullah Mohamed Almowed met with the Head of the State Tourism Agency in the Republic of Azerbaijan, Mr. Fuad Naghiyev.
The development of tourism relations between Kuwait and Azerbaijan and increasing the number of mutual visits were discussed at the meeting.
At the meeting, Mr Naghiyev said that tourism relations between Azerbaijan and Kuwait are developing, that the number of citizens visiting our country from the State of Kuwait in 2022 is more than 22 thousand people, and he hopes that this number will increase further this year.
Fuad Nagiyev said that after the victory in the Patriotic War in 2020 with the approval of the Commander-in-Chief, evaluating the tourism potential of Karabakh and developing it as a new tourist destination is one of the main tasks of the State Tourism Agency.
Noting that the development of political relations contributes to the expansion of tourism relations, Ambassador Abdullah Mohamed Abdullah Almowed touched on the importance of strengthening cooperation not only bilaterally, but also within the framework of international organizations.
He said that the shared values between the two countries, the presence of developed tourism infrastructure in our country, as well as the advantages of Azerbaijan as a safe and family-friendly tourism destination, have influenced the increase in the number of Kuwaiti citizens visiting the country.
At the meeting, opinions were exchanged on topics such as procedures that will facilitate travel to Azerbaijan, increasing the number of direct flights currently being performed, and organizing charter flights.
It should be noted that there are direct flights from Baku to Al-Kuwait via Kuwait Airways and Jazeera Airways 7 times a week. A simplified "e-visa" system is applied to Kuwaiti citizens for travel to Azerbaijan.
