Hiring in Kuwait

Located at the Northern tip of the Persian Gulf, Kuwait has been a strategic trading port since antiquity.

Today, it is known for its oil industry, with up to a sixth of the world’s reserves. Kuwait is a highly-developed, high income nation that has used oil revenues to become one of the richest nations on earth. The Kuwaiti dinar is the highest-valued currency in the world.

Although petroleum dominates both exports and the economy, start-ups are emerging as a key business area. 

Both expats and Kuwaitis take advantage of attracting skilled, younger workers to Kuwait from abroad.

Kuwait is a welfare state which uses its wealth to provide subsidies and benefits like free healthcare to its citizens, giving Kuwait the right human development index ranking in the Arab world.

Kuwaiti citizens are protected by extensive employment laws and regulations, and foreign investment and hiring is actively encouraged by the state.
