Getting to Kuwait by air is probably the most popular means of transportation, as many people want to arrive in the country as soon as possible to make their stay longer. In fact, there are over ten international airlines, which offer flights to and from Kuwait. Kuwait International Airport, for example, has modern facilities to cater to the comfort and flight needs of passengers from around the world. It currently holds plans to improve the landmark by adding another terminal. If you are the type of person who carries heavy amounts of luggage, you may want to look into Kuwait Airways, which will not only accommodate your baggage, but will also make sure that you reach your destination on time, if not earlier. Light packers are sure to enjoy the no-frills Jazeera Airways. Other airlines that you may want to consider are British Airways, EgyptAir, Emirates Airlines, Gulf Air, Lufthansa, OmanAir, QatarAirways, Saudi Araian Airlines, and YemenAirways.
Getting to Kuwait by sea, on the other hand, requires a longer travel time, but it makes up for this with its cheaper fares, additional private services, and a breathtaking view of the countryside before entering the city streets. Those who are from the Middle East will love the Combined Shipping Company, which offers a one-way return passage from the Shuwaikh Port in Kuwait to Iran’s Bushehr Port two times a week. Speedboats are also available for transport if you’re looking for a faster and more fun way of going to and from Shuwaikh Port to Manama, Bahrain. You can easily reserve the craft through the assistance of travel agencies in the city. However, if you prefer private trips, you can easily rent charter services from the Nuzha Touristic Enterprises, which provide voyages to Doha and Manama. These trips usually take about five hours. For people who are living in places that are closest to this country, they may consider getting to Kuwait by land instead.
Border crossings from Kuwait to Iraq and Saudi Arabia are possible only if you have sufficient documents, a good-enough reason for travelling, and a lot of patience. Before continuing with this option, you are required to check with the officials from Kuwait’s embassy first to see if the borders are open to accommodate visitors or not. Passengers from Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia can also opt to ride in buses, owned by the Kuwait Public Transport Company and Saptco, which operates alongside the Kuwait & Gulf Transport Company. Trips can last from six hours to a maximum of two days. Finally, the Saudi Embassy is offering cars and motorcycles for rent, giving you the chance to enjoy passing through Saudi Arabia on your way to Kuwait. However, this will mandate you to possess a transit visa.
