Government Partners

UNHCR marked its 30th anniversary in 2021, as it’s been present in Kuwait since 1991. In 1996, UNHCR and the Government of Kuwait signed a Cooperation and Office Agreement, granting UNHCR privileges and immunities in the State of Kuwait, and enjoys a long-standing relationship with the Government of Kuwait, supporting Syria, Iraq, and Yemen situations. It is also worth noting that Kuwait was a member of the US$20 Million Club from 2013 – 2019.
