@Aliah Gaungoo The Capital city of Saudi Called Riyadh . It's a beautiful place to move to

This is Arshad Aziz,

I have 10 plus years experience in transportation industry and currently working for Hertz Rental Group at one of their corporate locations as Operations Manager. I am mainly looking for Job but if there is right opportunity for business then I don't mind investing in it. I have experience in Food industry as well. Also I need to know how I can get Iqamaa for my family as well since I want my kids to go to school in Saudi. JazakiAllah khairan for your guidance and help. Assalamoalikum .

Hello everyone,

I've recently landed in KSA-Jeddah after being hired by the national carrier of Saudia Arabia. I'm actually in the process to get my Iqama done (issue on that posted in another section) and also to prepare everything for my family who should join in few month.

I enjoy diving and all other water activities as well as all outdoors one.

During the past 12 years, we use to live in Bahrain, Abu Dhabi and recently in Paris.

Hello Everyone, My Name is Nabel, I've been living in Saudi Arabia for the past 9 years, and during that time, I've had the opportunity to gain a deep understanding of the life, rules and regulations here. I've encountered my own set of challenges and have found ways to overcome them. To help others who may be facing similar situations, I've decided to start a YouTube channel specifically tailored to assist Saudi expats. My goal is to provide them with the information and support they need to make their transition and experience here a lot smoother. If you're an expat, please check out my channel for helpful tips and advice.
