Can I drive in Kuwait with my Kuwait driving licence? – UAE based company staff transferred to Kuwait

My Kuwait driving licence is valid till September 2018. However I cancelled my visa/Civil ID and I returned to home country (India) 3 months ago. Now I joined another company in UAE and I got the work visa stamped on my passport and Emirates ID here in Dubai. With this new company I will be moving to Kuwait on business visa for some official purpose. Can I drive in Kuwait with my available Kuwait driving licence?

Name withheld

Answer: After cancelling your work permit and residency, the driving licence stood automatically cancelled; you can therefore not drive in Kuwait as now you do not have a Kuwait driving licence, so take note and do not fall foul of the law if you land in the country and driving without a licence.
