Oh no, fellow expats! Here is another one for us. The Ministry of Electricity and Water has proposed the new energy tariffs / taxes as shown in the above chart.

Housing sector in Kuwait means the houses given by the government to its citizens. Investment sector means the housing areas mainly resided by expatriates. While there is still no particular date when the new tariffs / taxes will be made into effect, still, expatriates like us must make some adjustments.

If and when this takes effect, I am certain all of us – locals and expatriates would like our salaries be increased too so we can adjust our financial budget.
