Visiting Kuwait

by samkply

I would like to visit Kuwait. I have a Valid UAE resident visa. is it possible for me to get a visit visa on entry at the airport in kuwait. any fees relasted to that. which is the cheaper airline to travel from dubai to kuwait.

RE: Visiting Kuwait

by katcoota

Visit visas on arrival depend more on your nationality and not what country you have a residence for.

The cheapest airline from the UAE to Kuwait is probably Air Arabia.

All the best

At the moment you cannot travel on the strnegth of your UAE residency but there are apparently plans afoot to allow residents of Gulf countries to travel to other Gulf states more easily.

So it all depends on your nationality. Check with teh Kuwait Embassy to see if your nationality is one of the ones which can get visas on arrival at the airport.

Air Arabia is cheap but Jazeera may be even cheaper and has the advantage of flying from Dubai rather than Sharjah. Despite being an economy airline they have nice new aircraft with leather seats and good legroom. The further in advance you book the cheaper it will be. You can book online - www.jazeeraairways.com

Travel Tips for Kuwait

Coffe or Mirrah

by traveloturc

Its a local tradition to drink coffee or to offer coffee to visitors.Mirra is the most condensed type of coffee and its served in very small coffee cup like espresso.If you dont tell them that you dont want to drink more politely be sure that they will serve you continously.
After the third cup it can be dangerous for foreigners which are not use to this kind of coffee

If you like Fish - Visit Souk Sharq Fish Market

by kuwait_david

As well as being one of Kuwait's biggest Malls Souk Sharq also has the local fish market surrounded by the harbour where all the fish are landed. Head down early morning or late afternoon to catch the bustle of the fish being landed as well as the chaotic selling that goes on inside the fish market. On a hot day the fish market is blissfully cool if you can stand the smell of fish. You will find every possible shape size and colour of fish.

Liberation Monument (I think)

by mikey_e

I'm not actually sure what the point of this monument is, but I'm guess that it is some sort of tribute to the liberation of the country from Iraqi forces in 1991. The symbolize of the sculpture seems to be something of a phoenix rising from the ashes, but the lack of any sort of explanation makes it difficult to be sure. This particular piece of artwork is just outside of a police station across from the Grand Mosque on Mubarak al-Kabeer Street. The white and silver dichotomy is interesting, as there doesn't seem to be any indication of the damage caused by the occupation (I mean in the colour scheme).

Italian food should be left to Italians

by mikey_e about Signor Sassi

Kuwait is overflowing with foreign restaurants. Sometimes it seems like the people of this country are ashamed of their delicious, exciting and interesting cuisine. They cover it up with horrendous, bastardized versions of international cuisine that make you dream of kebabs and marag. Signor Sassi is a London fastfood chain that has recently moved into Kuwait. This outlet is designed to be a much more upscale restaurant than its London brethren, although there are more than a few instances of the staff breaking out in team chants and happy birthday. The menu includes a number of classic Italian dishes, but the problem is that they are devoid of pork and wine (two key ingredients) and many of the other key but legal ingredients are too expensive to include in the menu. They do try to provide a good experience for customers, and the service here is generally excellent if you can avoid the obnoxious manager. This restaurant is reputed to be the only one in Kuwait with its own pasta production. Prices are average for this type (Western) of restaurant. Both times I ate here, I got sick. I'm not sure what caused it, but both times I had the panna cotta dessert. The capriccio was quite good, as were the grilled vegetables, but I wouldn't recommend the pasta. The shrimps are decent, but the sauce in which they were served is bland.

Visit the Grand Mosque

by kuwait_david

The Grand Mosque is the only mosque in Kuwait you can officially visit. It is the biggest in Kuwait and covers 45,000 square metres. It can hold 10,000 people praying at the same time. It is a truely magnificent piece of architecture that is frustratingly difficult to visit. There are no official tours or times to visit, it is hit or miss whether someone will show you round or not. Friday is an obvious day to avoid, as is any late afternoon. After many tries it would appear visiting around 10:30am is the best bet as most administrative staff are on duty. If you can find someone to show you round they will treat you to a fantastic personal tour, so persistence is worth it.
