KUWAIT CITY: According to the latest figures, the population of Kuwait has crossed 4.86 million. The total population of the country is 4,860,000 according to the Public Authority for Civil Information.

Compared to the 2023 estimates, the population has recorded an increase of 2.6 percent. Of these, 15,46,000 are Kuwaitis and 33,13,000 are foreigners. The population ratio in Kuwait is 31.82 percent natives and 68.18 percent expatriates.
