What do expats find most challenging?

Answer this Question

We asked expats and digital nomads what they find the most challenging about the local culture in Kuwait. They wrote...

"Expats often find learning the language and adjusting to a new culture to be the most challenging parts of living abroad. Making new friends and navigating unfamiliar laws and regulations can also be daunting. Other common challenges for expats can include cultural or social isolation, homesickness, difficulty finding employment and adapting to a new lifestyle. Expats may also struggle with understanding the local healthcare system and navigating the visa and immigration process," wrote a member who made the move to Kuwait.

"Oddly enough, I have had more trouble with other expats, mainly males. These men are aggressive, presumptuous, and will not accept no for an answer. If a women has light colored hair, she will probably be a target of unwanted advances. Another group that has been difficult is the taxi drivers. Of course, not all but certainly many will overcharge you without a second thought. I tend to avoid taxis as much as possible, but that also limits my experiences and outings," explained one expat living in Kuwait City, Kuwait.
