Living and working in Al madinah Al Monawarah

Hi all,

I am an Indian Non Muslim expat who had recently accepted a job offer in Al Madinah. I am looking for inputs towards following points.

  1. As I understood from the briefing that I am not allowed to enter the Holy Mosque premises but no restrictions in other areas to move around is this correct.
  2. I am looking for a single or two bedroom furnished housing in Madinah is there any residential compounds available and shall be the price range.
  3. What is the easy way to commute, Uber/Taxi or renting/leasing a car or buying one?
  4. Which bank offers best services?
  5. What about mobile services, Which one is recommended.
  6. I am also offered a multiple exit entry permit how does this work is this valid for an year and does this help to travel monthly out of country without any restrictions.

Hello pp81,

While waiting for others to reply to your questions, I suggest you take the time to read the Living in Saudi Arabia guide for expats.

This guide contains all the information you need to relocate and live in Saudi Arabia.

All the best,
