Real Estate in Kuwait
Last updated on Mar 06, 2023
Summary: An expat looking to buy a home in Kuwait should start by researching the different areas of the country and the types of properties available. It is important to consider the cost of living in the area, the availability of amenities, and the proximity to work and other activities. Foreigners are allowed to own property in Kuwait, but there are certain restrictions. For example, foreigners are not allowed to own land, and they must obtain permission from the Ministry of Interior before purchasing a property. Houses in Kuwait typically include amenities such as air conditioning, swimming pools, and private gardens. Many homes also have security systems and other features to ensure the safety of the occupants.
