Working in Saudi Arabia?!
It is general knowledge that most people set out to stay in Saudi Arabia for only two years – but end up staying much longer. This is partially attributed to the fact that the petrol price is EUR 0,08 per litre, and the tax rate is 0%! Most will testify however that they enjoyed it more than they thought they would. Yes, it becomes hot during summer months but there is air conditioning throughout. Besides, it is only hot for 3 months of the year and for the rest of the year, one can enjoy a very pleasant climate.
Europeans particularly enjoy the Saudi sunshine, predictable weather and lovely Arabian nights. South Africans, Aussies, and Kiwis appreciate the good variety of food, quality meat, camping in the desert and 4×4 dune driving. Asians are impressed that their food tastes are well catered for and their knowledge and technical skills are appreciated. And Americans, well, they still earn the highest salaries of all expats – and, they can buy McDonalds here as well. Pork and alcohol products are not allowed in Saudi Arabia however there are plenty of alternatives that you will get to know. Women are not allowed to drive on the roads and should wear a black robe (abaja) when going out; which solves the problem of wondering what to wear each day and once you’re in Saudi you will quickly get used to having your own chauffeur! The secret is the attitude with which you approach a Saudi job opportunity – it could be daunting but it can also be a great adventure!
