Well done for this great post! It's really very helpful.

Regarding the labour law, I was told that employers provide pension benefits which are often not disclosed unless you ask them, and that this is claimable after a certain period of employment. Do you (or anyone else on here) know anything about this? I couldn't find it in the labour law link. Thanks in advance!

I am un dentist specialist in endodontie  have received un offer to work in Kuwait . the manager proposed 1500 DK without a house renting . i want to know of its a good offer ?  . he told to me the house renting cost me 300 DK . waiting for your reponse ? thanks

300 KD is cheap flats rent. If you want to find good location, good condition flat you will pay 850 KD/month. Or you want to find cheap one, you will pay 200 KD/month, it's mean, this is very subjective things.

Also salary, I think 1500 KD is cheap for dentist. I know some dentist salary more than 2000.
