My children and I are going to be joining my husband in Kuwait this coming June. I'm curious to first find out where the best place for expat families to live is. What I'm looking for is a furnished apartment complex with a swimming pool surrounded by lots of expat families! Anyone have any suggestions to an area that can provide all that?

They have a lot of properties in and around the Salwa areas and deal with Expats. Several of their locations have pools and they supply fully, semi or unfurnished apartments. A three bed, fully furnished starts at 600kd per month but that includes a cleaner, internet, telephone and TV package.

hi there ,
first depending on where your husband works but i am sure that in areas like fintas ,fhaheel , salwa or mahbuls which i know for sure that a lot of expat families are living (americans , english and other western nationalities ) i think you will be fine since your husband is in kuwait as you said and getting furnished apartment is very easy , so nothing to worry about . weather in kuwait in june will be very hot as in most of the day time the temperature will hit almost 50 c and i dont know how much is that in F degree lol . i wish you good luck and if you have any other question please feel free to ask or e-mail me :
thanks

Hi,
Fintas /Mangaf are areas where expats families now seem to be relocating, friendly areas, close to the sea and lots of great restaurants and shopping malls located around with parks and entertainment for children. good luck with the move, Kuwait is great so dont let people scare you!!, I have 3 young children and I have found everybody is very friendly and create entertainment for all within homes and out and about.

We're moving over next month to join my husband too. I can't wait!! My biggest fear is dealing with customs and flying over with four kids by myself. How old are your kids? How are you planning on dealing with the airport chaos?

Hi Hi,
Dont worry about the airport, its fairly straight forward..when u exit the plane just keep following the crowd in a straight line past the shops...at the end u will see some steps leading down, take these as it will bring you to customs and passport control, the trick is to sprint past all the slow walking passangers holding as many kids hands as you can..(I have 3 young ones myself), and then you can miss waiting in a long que!
From then its pretty straightforward...have fun.

If you don't have your visa before arriving into Kuwait you need to pick that up before you go down the stairs to passport control (some people dont realize this). The first time I arrived here my husband got the meet and greet to collect me and they take you to get your visa, then right through to pick up your luggage and meet you husband in the airport! Well worth the money for your first visit (well I thought it was)
Kuwait is very good for families and we enjoy it here. It is very hot in the summer but it also gets very cold in the winter which is something I wish I knew before we came as the first winter I had a lack of warm clothing!! Good luck!!

Hi. Im moving to Kuwait around June also. I am South American and am worried about the dress codes because I do not want to be unrespectul with their culture. How do a girl dress there?

hello selebm ,
girls in kuwait can wear whatever they want except for some thing like very light skirts or expose the stomach .... etc . you will see girls wearing tight jeans and shirts another word ( western style ) also you will see girls covering their hair and wearing loose dress (islamic) but i think you will be ok if for example you wear jeans and t-shirt or sleeveless (cut) top . in another word you will be in a place with no much worry about clothes .
thanks
