A new study by InterNations has revealed Kuwait is the worst country to work and live for expats (out of 64 countries), after they surveyed over 14,000 expats worldwide. I just checked and yes, Kuwait managed to still be last place last year too. This reminded me of a conversation I had with an American friend when he was in Kuwait a few years ago.
Kuwait at the time was in the top five worst places to be for expats and we were discussing this very issue. He told me he was surprised it wasn’t first place. He mentioned an incident where he was at the gym and he happened to be in eye-contact with someone else, so he smiled and said hi, the guy came and asked what’s wrong? In a way to start an argument.
I just came back from Dubai, and the way expats are treated there is 10 folds different (They’re 19th place on the list, Kuwait is last at 64th).
