Kuwait is a geographically small but wealthy country with a relatively open economy dominated by petroleum-based industry. Among non-petroleum industries, financial services are considered to be the largest industry in the region.

Business visitors may secure a commercial visit visa, sponsored by an entity in Kuwait. Travelers of certain nationalities may be eligible for visas-on-arrival or a hotel-sponsored visit visas.

The employment of foreign nationals in Kuwait is heavily restricted and the government strongly promotes the employment of Kuwaiti citizens. Recent nationalization policies focus on replacing foreign nationals with Kuwaitis in the public sector.

As part of the immigration process, foreign nationals must secure an entry visa and obtain work and residence permits. Local sponsorship is mandatory.

Detailed Immigration Snapshots, Document Lists and Process Guides are available to clients on request.
