Kuwait Travel Tips


Although Arabic is the official language of Kuwait, English is also widely used and spoken. Most traffic signs are written in both languages.


Kuwait’s crime rate is low. There are few violent crimes. The biggest problems come from verbal and physical harassment of women, but this can be avoided by traveling in groups, and dressing conservatively.


The country code for Kuwait is 965.


Kuwait has internet kiosks in most urban areas, which you can access for a small fee.


Kuwait’s international call rates are very high, but if you use the “New2Phone” booths, it can be very cheap. Skype is banned in Kuwait.


Hotels are expensive. A night at a regular hotel will generally cost about $200 USD. Visitors are also recommended to bring ear plugs as there are publicly announced prayers broadcasted at 4:30AM and 5:00 AM, and several times throughout the day.
