Live in Kuwait? Answer this Question

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"Company provided it for awhile but I moved to my own place through the rental company we always use," said another expat in Fintas.

"My company and most companies provide housing here. There are some bad places to live, as the locals, they LOVE Americans and are happy to help," remarked another member in Kuwait City.

What is a typical expat home or apartment like in Kuwait?

Live in Kuwait? Answer this Question

"In apartment housing. Most of us live in high rise apts that have some amenities. Some have fitness rooms, some have pools. Few have both," remarked another foreigner who made the move to Kuwait City.

"Apartments, mostly. From high rises to condo-like flats. Only Kuwaitis are allowed to own property, so we're all renters," explained one person living in Kuwait City, Kuwait.

What is the average cost of housing in Kuwait?

Live in Kuwait? Answer this Question

If you are thinking about moving to Kuwait, cost of living in probably a key consideration. Expats commented about the cost of housing:

"I do not know what the housing costs here. I DO know that the apartment I stay in would run about $1500 a month where I am from," remarked another member in Kuwait City.

"MUCH lower. About $500 or so a month for a good two bedroom apartment. Again, most companies provide housing as part of the contract. It's rare to find an American paying for their housing," explained one expat living in Kuwait City, Kuwait.
