Shipping to Kuwait from the US
The State of Kuwait is an Arab country with a name that means 'fortress built near water' is situated at the tip of the Persian Gulf and shares a land border with both Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Kuwait is often cited as one of the five wealthiest nations based on per capita income - with almost the entirety of that wealth resulting from oil exports. For such a geographically small country, it is surprising that it has an estimated 10% of the world's oil reserves.
