Wish I brought with me:
- more sunscreen and hats- second pair of runners- smart casual work clothes
- helmet for riding bikes / electric scooters (maybe not for pioneer camp though)
Would leave behind if I was to pack again:
- fancy clothes, high heels, suit jackets
- beach towels, gym towels (they are provided in camp)

As mentioned above Amazon and a lot of other sites deliver so anything you can't fit in luggage you can buy here. We came as a family and shipped over bikes, golf clubs etc because we were already shipping we packed more than we needed. Definitely did not need the 8 beach towels!

Hey everyone. It’s been a month since my signed offer everything is ready for the work visa but I am waiting for the POA from the GA department. Does anyone know how long that usually takes?

oh nice !!! It’s been 30 days since I signed my offer and still haven’t gotten it. They told me they are waiting for GA department to get it for me. Don’t know what to do, I gave the agency all of my papers they are just waiting for that.

10-12 days since you signed the offer or since onboarding call?

Hi everyone,

I’m at early stage of recruitment process. Wondering at what point that kids can be enrolled in the school during the recruitment process to reserve a place? And is there a cut off point for annual enrolments? Ideally don’t want to home school so my wife can work also.

My wife is an experienced and qualified physiotherapist. Does anyone know if there would be work available for a physio? Presuming there are medical and health facilities at the camps where there could be opportunity.

thanks

You can only enroll kids into the school once your job at NEOM has been secured ie once you are in the onboarding phase of the process.

It’s been 5 weeks since I signed my offer and I still didn’t get the POA from the government affairs office. Is this normal? I know some people got within 12 days. Is there anything I can do? My onboarder says they need more time.

It's been one month I was contacted to submit my documents ahead of the offer from HR yet no response. Despite attempts to get update, no response was received. I don't know if this is normal or anyone is in the same situation like mine.

For those on site, are the medical clinics for emergency and urgent care only (e.g. showing acute symptoms), or are you able to schedule standard wellness checkups and/or checks for chronic/existing conditions easily as well?

Do the benefits include dental and vision? Can't see it mentioned explicitly in documentation

They kept me waiting on for 4 months after docs submission. They went on complete radio silence with only update "Pending Approval". After 4 months they came back to me with no budget for the role and that's it.
