Get in touch with us today if you are looking to move to Kuwait. Bishop’s Move has an expert team with considerable experience in moving people to Kuwait and neighbouring regions such as Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. We provide an international removal service, moving people from the UK to many countries across the globe. Our team will make sure that all aspects of your removal are covered to make sure you have everything you need when moving.
To get the removal process started, we will send one of our expert team to your home so that they can carry out a moving house survey. This will ensure that we have met all of your needs and haven’t left any stone unturned when it comes to the removal process. We can also make sure that we have a good idea of the number of belongings you will need to bring with you.
The home survey will also give you the chance to speak to our international removal expert about your move to Kuwait and ask any questions that you might have about the process.
Standard of Living
The standard of living is good in Kuwait, with the cost of living around 23% lower than it is in the UK. With living costs somewhat cheaper, you will have more time to enjoy the many things the country has to offer. It is worth noting that the summer months are very hot and dry, so be sure to prepare as best you can.
One of the biggest benefits of living in Kuwait is that there is a variety of different types of accommodation available. There has been a huge surge in construction in recent years, so you can choose from a wide array of apartments and houses.
The currency in Kuwait is the strongest in the world, with the highest currency value. This means that jobs in Kuwait often offer high salaries with no personal income tax to pay. However, if you are planning to start your own business, you must have a Kuwaiti partner that would also own a majority of the business.
There are many different private schools to choose from in Kuwait with a range of westernised education available. However, these are often expensive with a limited amount of places so you should make sure that you take this into account and look into before you choose to move to Kuwait.
There are a wide number of private hospitals in Kuwait that offer the highest level of healthcare. However, medical insurance is expensive if it isn’t provided by your company. If you choose not to take private medical insurance, then you should expect to find long waiting times at public hospitals. Kuwaiti citizens will usually have the priority too.
