About the currency

Coins and notes

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. Coins are circulated in 1c, 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c and 100c coins pieces, and Kuwaiti banknotes are available in $¼, $½, $1, $5, $10 and $20 denominations.

Facts about the currency

  • You can bring up to a maximum of KWD 3,000 in local or foreign currencies into Kuwait. The export of local and foreign currencies is unrestricted. 
  • The dinar was introduced to Kuwait in 1960, replacing the Gulf rupee.
  • When Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990, the Iraqi dinar replaced the Kuwaiti dinar until the country was liberated in 1991. (Don’t let Kuwait’s turbulent history deter you from visiting; it’s considered quite safe for tourists these days.)
  • We recommend checking that any Kuwaiti banknotes you receive were issued after 1994, as all currency issued before then is no longer legal tender. This applies to any foreign exchange you receive in New Zealand, as well as any currency you obtain while in Kuwait.
  • After the invasion, much of Kuwait’s currency had to be demonetised. This is why it’s important to make sure you only get Kuwaiti banknotes issued after 1994.
