Import Regulations in Kuwait
With few trade restrictions and no exchange controls, Kuwait is a mostly open market. Minor manufacturing means that Kuwait has to import almost all its goods.

Merely Kuwaiti individuals and firms that are members of the Kuwait Chamber of Commerce and have an import licence from the Ministry of Commerce and Industry are entitled to import goods to Kuwait on a commercial basis.

With currently a 5% ad valorem across-the-board tariff on imports of most goods to Kuwait, there are no custom duties on imports of food products, essential consumer good and medicines. Brand-new industrial establishments are usually allowed to import machinery and equipment duty free.

58 items receive tariff protection from the government. The highest duty imposed on products that compete with locally manufactured goods is 100%.
