Its time to go back to India. Gulf countries are no more affordable to live. So much of discrimination for expats and different laws too. Private companies must increase the salary of their staff. Minimum rent for one bed room flat is around 250 or more. its just matter of survival now for expats. i don't think one can save any money with the present scenario. This year we see many families are leaving as they find it difficult to manage here.It started reflecting on school admissions etc.

first of all is that figure the yearly salaries paid to expats or monthly. in expat population the arabs get more salaries than the Indians for same job , which means that the average Indian's Salary is far less than the given average.

Most of the expats working in private companies are getting in four figures. Business people earning in 5 figures a month also.
Kuwait government is very kind in the sense that almost every thing here is tax free.
If they impose 2% tax it may bring revenues of KD 0.13 billion to KD 6.52 billion earning.
We Indians are always thankless people. We do pay taxes for every thing back in INDIA.

Shame on Kuwait about the salary structure in private companies!

Average rent of a one bedroom house is 250 KD and here Kuwait is officially telling average salary of an expat is 251 KD!!!!

The average monthly salary of expatriate employees in government sector is KD 691, is totally wrong. It is not even KD 500. I am working in the ministry for last so many years and after liberation of Kuwait, Government did not bother to increase the salaries of expatriates. We are stick to the same old salaries before invasion. It is disaster to work for Government and this is based on my practical experience. People sitting in CSC always refuse to increase the salaries of expatriates.
