Plug Adaptors

Guinea-Bissau uses Plug Type C.

Your Appliance has Plug Type C

In Kuwait there's more than one socket type in use.

You will need this adaptor:

Socket Type C
(Guinea-Bissau)
to Plug Type G
(Kuwait)

Kuwait also uses Socket Type C, which is used in Guinea-Bissau. If using an appliance that has a Type C Plug in the Type C Sockets of Kuwait, you will not need an adaptor.

Considerations

Voltage

The voltages found in Guinea-Bissau (220V) and Kuwait (240V) are not exactly the same, but the difference is tolerable, so you should not need a transformer.

Good to know

Frequency of Electrical Current

The frequency found in Guinea-Bissau and Kuwait is exactly the same (50Hz). Timing devices and appliances that use motors will function as expected under this frequency.
