The majority of Kuwaitis are Sunni Muslims. Islam remains an important part of everyday culture and influences most aspects of social and private life in Kuwait. Inshallah — if God wills it — is a phrase you will hear frequently during your daily life in this Muslim country. Note that alcohol, pork, and pornography are illegal.

At the same time, the cultural influences of immigrants in Kuwait can be seen everywhere, from international cuisine to the colorful dresses visible on the city streets. Kuwait has also developed quite an extensive Western-style expat infrastructure. There are many international schools, as well as local and international newspapers and television programs in English. Living in Kuwait, you may not even have to miss out on your favorite international groceries either.

New arrivals in Kuwait are advised to familiarize themselves with the most important Islamic traditions. Learning some basic common phrases in Arabic will also make living in Kuwait much easier.


Kuwait has a reputable public healthcare system that provides free or low-cost healthcare to all its residents, including expats living in Kuwait. In addition, some employers offer expatriate employees private healthcare plans as part of their remuneration package. However, the government has approved a proposal to eventually ban expats from using public healthcare facilities in the near future, with plans to build expat-only hospitals charging a considerably higher price.

Medical facilities and treatment at public and private hospitals are usually on par with North American and European standards. For very specialized treatments, however, those who can afford the costs — both expats and citizens alike — often seek medical care outside of the country.

In Kuwait, vaccinations are available free of charge at public clinics. All children need a tuberculosis vaccine in order to attend school while living in Kuwait. Pharmacies are usually well equipped, though they may sell medication under different names than you are used to. However, a quick look at the main pharmaceutical ingredients should help resolve any confusion or uncertainty.
