South Africans visiting GCC states with Saudi Iqama


I'm working in Saudi Arabia.
I'd like to travel and see surrounding counties like Kuwait, Jordan, UAE, Oman etc.
I have a South African passport and a work visa (Iqama).
The passport definitely has restrictions but does the Iqama allow me access to GCC states without applying for a tourist visa?
I would like to visit Kuwait and Iraq in the near future.

Any help would be appreciated.


If you meet the criteria below then you can enter Kuwait since you live in the GCC


From that info I can enter Kuwait with my passport and  residence visa.

Thank You very much MelnQ8.
