Daytrip to Kuwait from Dubai
Im goin to stay in Dubai in September and want to make an Daytrip to Kuwait with Emirates, 8:00 flying to Kuwait, 18:00 flying back to Dubai
So I have no Hotel sponsoring a Visa
Im German Passport Holder, so due to my Foreign Ministry I can get a Visa on Arrival in Kuwait, do you guys know, if this is possible, if I have an confirmed Flight Ticket but no NOC from an Hotel in Doha?
Unfortunately the Kuwait Embassy in Germany is not reachable....
RE: Daytrip to Kuwait from Dubai
EU citizens can get a visa upon arrival in Kuweit if they are staying for less than 30 days, which means you don't (normally) require a sponsor in the country anyway. All you should need to be able to prove is that you have a return ticket and, if relevant, a visa for the country you will be travelling to next - which I assume is no problem as it would be back to Dubai.
See http://www.kuwait-info.org/services.html but of course only a Kuweiti Embassy - in Germany or elsewhere - can provide official information. Note that the information on that site about sponsorship is for entry visas that have to be obtained in advance, not those granted upon arrival, to the listed nationalities.
RE: Daytrip to Kuwait from Dubai
With a German passport getting a visa on arrival is easy and stright forward. All EU passports (to the best of my knowledge) are treated the same. I visited Kuwait on my British passport without any problems.
It is worth while keeping a list of hotels with you in Kuwait. Some staff get funny and are not convinced that you will go back on the same day. Having a list of hotels may be useful to show that you have catered for that possibility if for any reason you couldn't fly back the same day.
All the best and enjoy your visit.
Travel Tips for Kuwait
The greeting is universal in Muslim countries and means literally, "Peace be with you". The response which means "peace with you too" is "aleikum salaam".
It's a nice way to enter shops, restaurants and other businesses and the Kuwaiti people's eyes light up a bit when Westerners show they're trying.
If you can, learn to count to ten in Arabic and the numbers 20, 30, 40 and so on to 100. Also learn the local terms for "Excuse me", "How much is that?", "Please", "Thank you", "Goodbye". It won't take long and it helps erode the bad press Americans have gotten for decades for being obnoxious.
Kuwait Beach Activ.
There are many places in Kuwait that have Beach Activities here are some Places.
*Beach Volley Ball
Next to al Sharq Mall there are many nets for groups wishing to play.
In the Hilton resort all beach activites are found. There is a small price to pay for people who arent staying at the hotel.. Im not sure of the price.
You can also rent Jetskis in most places near the beach
Messila Beach (There is also a waterpark which is nice)
Kuwait Stock Exchange
Right in the heart of Kuwait City opposite the Grand Mosque is the Kuwait Stock Exchange. Turn up any weekday (Sunday - Wednesday) between 10am and 1pm to watch one of the richest stock exchanges in the world in action. You will need to look the part to walk in, so dress like you are on business. Once you are inside you will see a real part of modern arabic culture. A fascinating visit you would never get to see anywhere else in the Gulf. This unique place also has a female only trading hall, one of the very few if not only one in the world. If you are a female visitor this is a great opportunity to see something truely unique. The Stock Exchange also has free wireless internet if you are inside. The wireless network is so good that if you sit across the road in the coffee shop Second Cup you can link into their network for free from a window seat.
Best Indian in Kuwait
This places advertises itself as a multi-cuising place, but it's the Indian food you should go for. The terrace facing the modern business district and the guy with big moustache in traditional indian costume just add to the character. A true experience. By the way, it's also cheap. Their tikka is absolutely stunning, and you should go for some of the sizzling specialties served in a hot pan. Also the gravy stuff is unbelievably light and phenomenally good. Chapeau!
These water towers, resembling huge balls of sparkly yarn impaled on giant knitting needles, are practically a symbol of Kuwait. The towers sit on a promontory marking the southern mouth of Kuwait Bay. They are actually meant to evoke the shape of traditional Arabian rose-water sprinklers, and they really do hold water. There is an observation deck and coffee shop within the upper sphere of the tallest structure. The lower sphere also sports a restaurant.
