  • Rates in Kuwait

    Westerns , Indians & Arab expats each have his own way of life. It’s very difficult to answer this question, any ways I’ll try

    1- Flats
    Shared accommodation is available from the rates of 30KD/month to 70KD/mounth.
    Unfurnished 1 bedroom flat costs 150KD/mounth to 190KD/month.
    Furnished 1 bedroom flat costs 170KD/mounth to 220KD/month.
    Unfurnished 2 bedroom flat costs 180KD/mounth to 250KD/month.
    Furnished 2 bedroom flat costs 220KD/mounth to 350KD/month.
    Unfurnished 3 bedroom flat costs 300KD/mounth to 400KD/month.
    Unfurnished 4-9 rooms flat/villas costs 450KD/mounth to 1800KD/month (wide range depend on location, neighborhood, area,…..)

    Anyway furniture doesn’t cost much respectively and it’s available to door to door.

    2- Cars
    Available in all brands in rent and installment systems from 60KD/month to 250KD/month, I don’t recommend old cars. Installment system may be rare these days or need the guarantee of a Kuwaiti because of the crises.

    3- Food
    This defiantly different from culture to another I’ll try to give my imagination.
    Arabs & Indians about 10-15 KD / person /month.
    Westerns about 25-35 KD / person /month.
    Indian restaurants from 0.5-6 KD/person/meal.
    Arab restaurants from 3-10 KD/person/meal.
    Western/American restaurants from 3-8 KD/person/meal.

    4- Entertainment
    Not easily available and a little bit costly.
    Cafes about 2.5-7KD / person (not including food)
    Sports / health clubs from 20-70 KD/month.
    Fishing sea trips about 400-600KD /trip for 10 persons for 1 day.

    5- Education
    Indian/Pakistani schools 200-500 KD/kid/year.
    Arab schools 200-500 KD/kid/year.
    Arab/Muslims language schools 1800-3000 KD/kid/year
    English/Canadian/American schools 1500- 2500 KD/kid/year.

    I hope I had helped
    Any doubt contact me.
