The new rise aims to improve the income of government ministries in return for improving services, the source said, noting that Kuwait imports more than 90 per cent of its medical supplies.
The General Statistics Administration said that the number of visitors or non-Kuwaiti residents in the country is 3.38 million, compared to 1.4 million Kuwaitis.
In 2017, the government approved the first increase in healthcare fees, which reached 500 per cent.
In 2018, healthcare service fees were among the rise in fees for other public services. In April, the government increased the fees for health insurance, making this the fourth increase.
