Yes. If you are a non-Kuwaiti (e.g. an expat residing in Kuwait through a residency permit) and depart to reside outside of Kuwait permanently, you can maintain your NBK Capital SmartWealth account.  

In scenarios such as these, you can only maintain your existing NBK Capital SmartWealth accounts. You will have the ability to deposit and withdraw funds to and from all existing SmartWealth accounts (subject to the below). We understand that you might have restrictive access to your Kuwait bank account. In those situations, to perform deposit and withdrawal activities, you will need to supply us with all requisite documentation proving the change of residency status and that you are the actual beneficiary of the newly supplied banking information. 

Kindly inform the NBK Capital SmartWealth team in advance of developments regarding your residency status. When in doubt, please don't hesitate to reach out to us for further clarifications.
