Advertising material and samples may be admitted duty free if they are contained in packages that describe the advertising nature of the contents and identify the sender. Quantities considered to be in excess of reasonable requirements may be subject to normal customs duty. Exhibition materials are duty free.

Temporary imports into Kuwait can enter under a customs bond, with the bond remitted to the importer when the product leaves Kuwait. This process is known as demonstration and re-export. In the event any outdoor equipment is imported to Kuwait for testing, the best months are July and August, when weather conditions are the most challenging with the oppressive heat.

The Kuwait Free Trade Zone is located at Shuwaikh Port and allows for full trade, service, and industrial activities.
