Some consular offices do not accept applications from temporary visitors in a third country. Are you a temporary visitor or a permanent resident in Kuwait? If you have a residence permit or work permit in Kuwait, it might be easier for you. Take along your passport, a filled application form, a recent photo, your work permit or invitation letter from China, and go to China Embassy in Kuwait to do the application. Good luck!

Yes, it's possible. Besides the form and photo, you need to submit passport, Kuwait residency permit, and documents showing the itinerary including air ticket booking record (round trip) and proof of a hotel reservation, etc.
