Life in Kuwait

Living in Kuwait is an adventure. Whether you are single or with your family, you can maintain a very good work life balance, but as any other move it can have its challenges, so you need to be prepared for life in Kuwait.
Kuwait is a small, oil-rich constitutional emirate. Kuwaiti nationals constitute 1.1 million of the 3.4 million population in the country, and they get to enjoy the benefits of a generous social welfare system that guarantees employment, housing, education and healthcare.
There are many attractions in Kuwait City. These range from a number of excellent museums, a sea front ornamented with combed beaches and extravagant restaurants, modern shopping complexes and marinas, long and lazy retreats, and new beach resorts.
Kuwait has many private hospitals. Most staff at UAS are covered by our insurance policy. The majority of the population of the country is below the age of 30 and they are open to meeting expats.
There is a wide variety of expat clubs, such as the AWL (American Women’s League), BLS (British Ladies Society) and OLEK (Organization Latina En Kuwait). These organizations have gatherings and are deeply involved with schools and charitable programs.
Kuwait City is a hub of cinema halls and theaters and it is one of the best ways to spend an evening with friends and family. The theaters are usually crowded in the weekends but you can book your tickets online ahead of time.
Taxis are the most distinct, practical and convenient type of transportation in Kuwait, as they are easily located in several residential areas, and public places in all of the cities in Kuwait.
