Preparing for Kuwait: Tips & Hints

1. Tipping isn’t officially accepted, but in some larger restaurants tip may be included in the total account. If you would like to thank the helpful waiter, you can add to the bill 10% of the amount or to round it up to any convenient sum.
2. Bargaining is possible only at open markets, as bargaining has been a ritual for years and years. In stores and shopping centers commodity prices are fixed; it is also worth noting that there is no VAT in Kuwait.
3. Most shops and malls open at 8:30 - 9:00am and work until 8:00 - 9:00pm. During the day, some stores may be closed for a very long break. Thursday and Saturday are considered short working days, and on Friday almost all shops are closed.

4. Tourists, who are going to call in a lot of other countries and cities, are recommended to purchase a plastic prepaid card. It is sold in all newsstands, petrol stations and post offices. This plastic card is accepted by every payphone. Calls from conventional street payphones would be the most profitable ones.

5. Travelers, who expect to visit remote areas of the city and travel outside the tourist areas, have to pay attention to the choice of clothes. Clothing for walking should be high-necked and long-sleeved; too bright and provoking attire is considered a sign of bad taste and can be misinterpreted. Tourists in the low-necked clothes don’t even receive the permission to enter the territory of religious attractions.
6. Local people are very reluctant to alcoholic beverages; it is possible to consume spirits only in designated areas. The appearance in a public place while being drunk is considered a gross violation of public order, which could be followed by a heavy fine.

7. Main voltage is 220 V; three-pin sockets are most common. Required adapters can be borrowed from the hotel or purchased at any supply store.
8. Banks and other government offices open early, at 7:00-7:30am and serve visitors to 1:00-1:30pm. Some larger agencies may also work for some hours in the evening. Tuesday is a day-off, and Thursday is a half-day.
