some Kuwaiti doing fraud in EU country carrying old currency of Kuwait and exchanging in dark area, or looting others, given good rates,even known as those currency is not valid any more after war , but some kuwaiti people still doing it, and i am one of them, been scam from this fraud.

in kuwait airport Bengali loading cheating, in the name of laggaue carriers, or wrapping the bagages, controlling all trollies, and charging extra, no control, very bed behaviers(look liks, kuwaitin managment blinds, not monitoring and controlling these bengalies or they could be behind them to behave like that.

public transport is very low quality, services, not fully transportation for foreginers and local foreigners tourist and people who work there and thats why most cabies taxies robing local or tourist. systems need to imrpoved, attitued need to improved, like all kuwaiti liveing in EU should behalf , like people do with you in EU, be respectfull with foreigners in kuwait. need improvement in, being subject to a physical attack because of your skin colour, ethnic origin.

I am a Kuwaiti citizen. Kuwait is one of the most safe countries in the world. Yes we are surrounded by Iraq, Iran, Syria and Israel but still Kuwait interiorly is one of the safest countries in the world. I walk everywhere alone even at 3 am. Women can walk at night everywhere nothing will happen. Kuwait has 0 homeless people. No one is living in the street. Poorest people here are who clean streets. And still, they have place to live and they are friendly people.
