If this coastal oasis of the Middle East is next on your travel list, we can help you sort out your Kuwaiti dinar before you go. Whether you plan to head up the 187m of the Kuwait Towers, explore the Tarea Rajab Museum or the Grand Mosque, or maybe even go 4WDing on the Kazmah desert cliffs, sorting out your travel money before you go will free up more time for you to experience all that Kuwait has to offer.
Introduced to Kuwait in 1960, the dinar is divided into 100 fils. Banknotes have Latin numerals on one side, but the coins are entirely in Arabic. We recommend that you check your banknotes are issued after 1994, as anything issued before that is no longer legal tender. That goes for your FX before you go, as well as any change you might receive.
You can bring up to a maximum of KWD 3,000 in local or foreign currencies into Kuwait, but the export of local and foreign currencies is unrestricted. If you want to get your KWD sorted before your trip, you can order your travel money at any of our 130+ stores or order it online whenever you want and just pick up instore at your convenience.
