    kuwait is very expensive in coming days, flat rents become high, and visa charges

  2. Kuwait is now becoming a hell for expats. A driver gets 150kd normally. If he crosses the red light by mistake then what he could send to his home when kd 100 is deducted. And other fines are also increased. Kuwait is a rich country and they should not increase charges too much. Well if they want to do this they must increase the starting salary from kd275. The saraleris remain the same and the fines, charges increases, is it justified??????????????

  3. Our company is collecting us a 67kd as visa renewal fee..
