Kuwait is a country situated at the tip of the Persian Gulf. Located at the northern edge of Eastern Arabia, this country shares its borders with Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Only five countries have more oil reserves than Kuwait. This is responsible for Kuwait’s strong economy and why the Kuwait Dinar holds the highest value among other global currencies.

Kuwait has always been a popular destination for expats. Rich in oil, the emirate is economically prosperous and offers lucrative career prospects to expats. In fact, the economy is one of the prime reasons why foreigners move to Kuwait. Its economic prosperity depends on the oil industry, and oil products make up almost 50 percent of the country’s GDP. They also constitute over 90 percent of the government’s income. With the increase in oil prices in 2010–2012, government spending accelerated, along with economic growth. But the fall in prices in 2015 paved the way for a budget deficit for the first time in sixteen years.   more ...
