Driven by oil, the accelerating economy of Kuwait has fueled not only a construction boom but also a raft of expats who have arrived from across the globe. As well as oil and construction, English teachers are also in high demand in the tiny state, and as a result, expats are well-catered for with a variety of amenities. As well as there being plenty of museums, galleries, restaurants, and giant shopping malls, there are also beach resorts for everyone to enjoy a short and easy getaway. Despite those amenities, however, most expats still arrive in Kuwait for financial reasons. The huge number of jobs for expats, the high-valued currency, and the lack of personal income taxes mean that it's often an attractive proposition for a wide range of foreign workers.
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere and never feel like a stranger.
