Hence, before entering the country, it is crucial to understand the prevailing laws to avoid legal complications.

Travelling near the borders of Iraq and Saudi Arabia without any authorisation is illegal.
Ensure not to withdraw a large amount of cash from an ATM or carry expensive jewellery as this would draw unnecessary attraction, which can be detrimental to the trip.
As Kuwait has stringent and conservative laws, it is advisable to keep the travelling and civil documents within reach.
