How safe is Kuwait?



  • Hi!! I understand kuwait is safe place. What about wearing dreadlocks and tattoo?
  • Am a Nigerian and would want to get a Kuwaiti residence visa to enable me settle and look for job there.And secondly am an accounting graduate and also have OSHA certificates,would it be easier for me to secure a job in kuwait?And how much would it cost me to get a residence work visa?
  • You cannot obtain a residency visa until you have been granted a work permit. Work permits are issued only on the basis of a genuine job offer and it is the Kuwaiti employer who applies and pays for the work permit and residency visa.
  • Kuwait is fine, no terrorist originizations get into there and that was
    the main US base that we deployed our Baghdad invasion from. that place
    is protected all the time. unless he gets deployed from there you have
    nothing to worry about.

    Devakumarsd, what country are you from and what job have you been offered.
  • Jensendrake2 very romantic, you have obviously never lived and worked in the Gulf states.
  • So Jensen... Kuwait has gone from "just about crime free" to lots of crime and threat of terrorist attacks in two small posts? Haha...

    Thanks for the chuckle.

    Kuwait has a very low level of crime. According to the Indian ministry of external affairs, there are around 680,00 Indians living in Kuwait.
    The Bayan Palace in the Amiri Diwan is the home of the Amir (king) of Kuwait and the centre of Kuwaiti government. Because of this there are high levels of security in the Amiri Diwan for those who live and work there.

Is not a safe place at all....they think if u are black u are slaves. ..
  • Jklboat, as an African-American your usage of the English language is appalling, we do not use text speak on this forum.

    The majority of domestic servants in Kuwait are from the Phillipines, India, Sri Lankan, Nepal and Indonesia. Africans are not the first choice of servant anywhere in the Gulf states, Saudi Arabia etc.

    In 2013 a Ghanain man was found guilty by a court in Accra Ghana of trafficking mostly women to Kuwait., all the victims were returned safely to Ghana.

    Kuwait is not a bad place to live, the U.S. Department of State assesses the current threat level for crime to be “Low " the British government agrees.

    Your advice not to go to any Arab country is utter nonsense, I spent many years working in Arab states which were perfectly safe, Kuwait being one of them.
  • See I am pharmacist by profession and I am think of doing job as a pharmacist in Kuwait for 10-15 years ....what's demand of pharmacist in kuwati and is it save to work there?

  • Why apply to work in a country where you do not think you will be safe or know nothing of the life. The crime rate is very low in Kuwait unlike the Pbillipines. Women in general are very safe. 60% of Kuwaits population are expatriates.
