​• Kuwait's immigration system provides limited options for employers of foreign nationals. ​Kuwait's open economy is dominated by the petroleum-based industry and financial services are considered to be the largest non-petroleum 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 visa-on-arrival or 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.
