A new survey has revealed that Kuwait is the cheapest country to live in for expats seeking a position in the Gulf.
According to the Mercer's 2017 Cost of Living Survey, Kuwait's Capital, Kuwait City ranks at position 111, which is a drop of eight positions since the last survey was released.
The place competes with it's neighbouring Gulf cities, namely Dubai and Abu Dhabi who were ranked the second and third most expensive Middle Easst cities for the cost of living for expats. These rankings have seen Dubai rise by one position, and it's now the 20th most expensive city in the world.
Of course, while Kuwait is still the cheapest overall in the Gulf, it has risen by eight positions, which further proves that the Gulf is becoming increasingly more expensive for expats seeking to move here.
For anyone seeking a move to the Gulf and want the expatriate lifestyle, Kuwait may appear to be the more attractive option. However while your income may be tax-free, you must be mindful that there is still a relatively high cost of basic goods.
