Hi, everyone!

I am moving to Saudi Arabia at the end of the year with my husband (he is already there and has been working in Abha for a few months). I am moving there with our two year old daughter, and I'll be working remotely from the compound there for my job in NYC.

I am wondering if anyone has suggestions about what to bring/ship over? Are there things that are especially difficult to buy there (that are also legal to bring in kingdom)?  I have lived other places where things like duct tape were especially difficult to come by, so I'm wondering if I can prepare in advance for some of those things?

Many thanks in advance, and I'm appreciative that this forum exists!

Hi, Good Evening and Assalam u Alakum

My self Sohail Ahmed from Pakistan, Karachi, after spending 13 years in UAE now 2 months before came to KSA Riyadh.

Salam everyone, happy I was able to join this community.
I come from Ljubljana, Slovenia and I moved here to live with my husband, who's an expat in KSA for the past 7 years.
I arrived to Jeddah almost 3 weeks ago and I'm glad and proud to report we are settling nicely in our apartment.
I would love to connect with locals and expats with similar interests, I'm especially begining to miss some "lady company" for coffee and chitchat.
Kind regards ;)

Hello everybody

My name is Karen.  I currently live and teach in Johannesburg, South Africa.  I received an offer to start work in August 2020.  I have yet to sign the contract as it's a big move and I've had mixed reviews about life in Jeddah.

I am well aware that there is no perfect place and that your experience will depend on how you approach every situation.  This really is the perfect opportunity for me to make my dreams to travel come true.

Are there opportunities and time to travel if  you teach in Jeddah?  And is travelling easily accessible and affordable?

Many thanks

Hi Karen,
What do you mean by traveling while teaching? Do you mean during vacation? Well if so, the semester starts at the beginning of September and end by the end of December. Then start again in end of January and end by the end of April. During each semester, there's one week break in the middle. Traveling from Saudi abroad depends on the season and early flight booking. Also. You need to issue exit-re entry visa which cost around 50 USD (200 SAR). Traveling inside Saudi doesn't require visa and flights are cheaper than abroad or almost the same if there's a peak period. Hotels starts from 200 SAR on average.

Hi Lofty,

Any ideas on what there is to do in terms of socials?

Perhaps someone should create a thread for socials and then create a whatsapp group - what do you guys think?
