You can create 2 Paypal accounts under your name provided that the other one is a business account. Therefore, you can have a Personal and a Business account. Since you're already in Kuwait, why don't you update instead your home address, then, delete the first one. That may address your main concern.

Yes you can but with several condition: 1. You must have two unique/different email and financial information (bank account) 2. When you sign in with Paypal, you must sign in different type account for each email. Example: On email A, you sign as personal account and on email B you sign as premier or business account. Visit this link for confirmation (Read below "Compare PayPal Account Types" table): https://www.paypal.com/id/cgi-bin/marketingweb?cmd=xpt/Marketing/general/PayPalAccountTypes-outside Happy lotters

Yes, I had 2 accounts, though i closed one. Only constraint is that you cannot add one bank account to both accounts. One bank account is linked to one username. Same is the case with all withdrawal means. I guess , even in Kuwait it is allowed.

I am an Indian too and I am familiar with Indian rules so I can only tell you about the possibility of opening a second paypal account . Here in India you can open a paypal account in your husband's name and use his PAN number , Bank details and a separate email account for this new account (not your previous one ) . You have to check with paypal regarding the rules followed in case of Kuwait . I think other members here will also be able to help you . All the best
