Are you an expat working and living in Kuwait? Or are you preparing to move soon to Kuwait City, Kawalli or any other of the Kuwaiti international hotspots?

Expat life in Kuwait has much to offer and provides a great intercultural experience – from discovering the countryside like Bubiyan Island, learning how Kuwaiti people celebrate Hala February, up to tasting Kuwait’s favorite dishes such as majboos.

However, InterNations does not only address expats in Kuwait. We have brief overview guides for various locations around the world – from living in Cyprus to living in Spain.

Moving to and living in Kuwait requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Kuwaiti expat life.

And are there also public non-smoking laws?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Kuwait City should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Kuwaiti municipality in Jahrah?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Kuwait is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Kuwait aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Kuwait.
