So, my husband and I are very excited about my new job at a new school in Kuwait. However, I just found out that since I am female, I cannot sponsor him to come to Kuwait as my trailing spouse. Any advice? I know that he can come initially on a tourist visa for 3 months, but geez...

He is also a teacher and I believe that he would find a job himself in a NY minute soon after we set up house. Is it legal in Kuwait to look for work while on a tourist visa? Inquiring minds want to know.

Also, while I am at it, are there any Western Women groups/clubs in Kuwait that I could join so that I will know some people there as soon as I land? Any advice very much appreciated. Thanks!!! Very Happy

For info on social activities and basically, expat life in Kuwait, do an Internet search on expat forum kuwait.

So youve been offered a job at a new American school in kuwait? There is a new one coming but please be prepared for a bumpy landing. There are a lot of people talking about this online. I suggest you do some research or your excitement may turn to regret. Be prepared.

The people I have been working with seem very professional, and it is a new school. Everything I have read so far has been positive. Why would there be a problem? Please show me where you found this information.
