Kuwait is a country rich in history and cultural heritage dating back to antiquity. It is situated in the north western part of the Persian Gulf which is the driest, least - hospitable deserts on earth and for some has made it very difficult to live, yet its people harvested the rich minerals oil and gold.Kuwait has a number of major sea ports which makes shipping via sea freight the most common method of importing and exporting. We can also offer air freight to ship small and large items such as parcels and pallets. Both of these services are traceable and require signatures upon delivery. Collections are made from Door in the UK and depending on the specific service delivery would be to Door or Port. Kuwait Customs are very strict, but this is not a problem for us. You will be asked for the required documentation upon completion of the booking so there is no delay in shipping.
