Your Passport/Visa Alone Not Good Enough: Kuwait Soon To Demand Your DNA Before Entry

This Country Will Soon Demand Your DNA Before You Enter

Melanie Lieberman | April 25, 2016

Officials insist that the test is being used “to fight crime and terrorism,” not to test for “lineage,” ascertain certain “genealogical” or “medical” factors, or infringe on privacy, according to an article in the Kuwait Times.
