Kuwait is known to have one of the largest expatriate populations in the Middle East. Bordering Iraq and Saudi Arabia, Kuwait is located along the northwestern Arabian Gulf. Roughly only 1/3 of the population are local natives, whereas the rest of the population is derived from expatriates relocating to the country, vastly due to its rich oil resources.
Healthcare in Kuwait
Although Kuwait’s local natives have access to high level standard medical facilities, expatriates are not included in the country’s free medical coverage. Expatriates living in Kuwait are required to obtain medical insurance, as well as expected to pay for the local coverage, at an established annual fee. It is highly recommended that expatriates obtain global healthcare insurance while living in Kuwait, as these annual fees only cover standard care, and will not provide care at private hospitals & clinics.
