The municipal law has clearly stated that expats cannot apply for camping licenses, and only Kuwaitis, aged 21 and above, are eligible. The camping season begins on 1 November, and groups with the necessary paperwork can go to the designated areas to set up tents. Municipality Director General Engineer Ahmad Al-Subaih has revealed that there are 15 sites in Jahra and five in Ahmadi governorates for camping. He asks those applying for a camping license to pay KD 50 as the license fees for each camp and to select only one site from the 20 sites allocated by the municipality.
He added that a KD 300 deposit for every 1,000 m of the camp site will be charged, to be refunded on the removal of the camping equipment and after the site has been cleaned.
"It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed."
