What do I need to know before moving to Kuwait?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Kuwait, they said:

"Find someone here with similar tastes. Available housing is pretty abundant, you won't have a problem finding something nice," said one expat who made the move to Kuwait City.

"Before moving to Kuwait, expats should be aware of the country's strict laws and regulations. It is important to familiarize oneself with the local customs and culture, as well as the dress code. Expats should also be aware of the hot climate and the need to take precautions against the sun. Additionally, expats should research the cost of living in Kuwait and the availability of housing. Finally, expats should make sure to obtain the necessary visas and permits before arriving in Kuwait," explained one expat living in Kuwait.
