Well hey
The biggest expense that any expat mau face here is house rents (you wont find anything below 250 kd) so if the company assures you that well i can say 400 isnt that bad if you are a middle class person and know how to spend your money nicely so not a bad deal but try convincing them for around 500 or atleast 450 because your kids school's fee is also there on list

Thank you  for  your  reply They accept  for 600 KD.with Duty meal and yearly  ticket and  accomodation.How much is  the  school fee for the Elementary (kindergarden) in Kuwait?Is it possible  for my  wife had College  intermediate fluent in English(dont know  Arabic) to get any  job?

Yes dear friend, I brought m family when I was having 200 kd salary. Things was very bad that time, Nut now I am getting 400 and its very easy to stay in a single bedroom flat.

for accomodation  for u- minimum 150 kd, school for kid 50kd/ month, food & taxi around 75 kd. make sure where they provide accomodation.

my dear its really good salary to stay with family in kuwait one of the best country in middle east to stay with family

I was so worry after reading different posts. But after reading this thread, I am so comfortable that I can manage in this salary. any comments are welcomed

400kd is not enough if your family is here unless your wife will also look for work. If she will not work, you will save little.

It's enough for u mr....atleast its just only one kid

i don't want to be negative or rude or whatever you want to call it i live with my sister with 600 KD and i'm not able to save 10 KD by the end of the month.
