      Kuwait. Capital and country. During 2 and half days.

      by massot Online Now Oct 16, 2016 at 8:55 AM

      I will visit Kuwait during 2 and half days, at the end of November.
      May you advise some places to visit in the capital and outside?
      Probably the best, or perhaps the only, way to move around is a taxi. Some address of a kind driver speaking english?
      Which hotel do you advise me (4 stars, better)?
      Thanks for any help

      by mkppslmayuga Online Now Aug 17, 2014 at 12:21 PM

      I'm a housewife , My husband is also a Filipino and he is an Engineer. I'm 6months pregnant and on my Due date we plan to get a tourist visa for my mother. And one thing i want to know if it is possible that my 14 years old half sister can also sponsor my husband even we are not the same surname because she has a different father but my mother is not annulled , so my mother surname and middle name are same as mine when i was not yet married but my half sister's surname is the surname of my stepfather. Would my hald sister will grant visa easily if my husband will sponsor for her together with my mother? Thank you

    • Is it possible that my kuwaiti boyfriend can sponsor me for a visit visa in kuwait?

      by rheammad_39 Online Now Sep 14, 2012 at 6:42 AM


      I have a local Kuwaiti boyfriend for almost 3 yrs. already. He wants me to visit his country and get married but he told me that he cant be my sponsor since he is single as what his friends told him. I am a Filipina woman who is living in the Philippines. Now the problem is that, my friend who is already a resident in Kuwait can't be my sponsor for I am not a family member of her. Is there any possible ways that I can visit Kuwait with my boyfriends invitation? Can you please give me some helpful tips on what should I do?. Can we get married when I am already there, even if it's a visit visa? Can I stay in his flat or do I have to stay in a hotel when I got there? Your reply can be a great help for me. Thank you so much.

      My boyfriend will go in kuwait and work there. He will have accommodation, because in the agreement stays that they will give him that. So if i go there, can i stay with him in the same apartment, we are not married, and if i cant, what should i do. Im from Macedonia and he is from Hungary. And what about visa, where they will give me, at the border?

      Thank you so much

      Which area to stay in/ what should we choose in Kuwait city?

      by lallarebecca Online Now Jan 18, 2012 at 5:00 AM


      I am travlling to Kuwait city for a couple of days in the beginning of June (yes, I know the heat is fierce that time!), and I wonder which is the best area to choose for accomodation when you have not visited Kuwait city before?

      I want to see as much as possible and also do some shopping.

      I have been looking at some places downtown, close to Soor street and not too far away from the souk, and also some places in Salmiya, which seem to be a bit off, but on the other hand have beaches?

      Though I am a little confused, some guides say that Salmiya is the very center of Kuwait city and that the area hosts all shoppingcentres as well as all the culture, is that correct?

      Also, what would the price be to take a short cab ride within the city, maybe 5-10 min maximum? Do I need to haggle a lot about the price since people can tell my by looks I am European?

      Thanks in advance,
