Hi all,
I joined NEOM this week - based in Community 1. Is anyone else around / new? Would be great to meet people and get settled in!
Thanks

When you say you're based in Community 1... you mean your cabin is in NC1? Haven't you been in NC2?

No, I haven't joined Neom yet. It's supposed people are sent to NC2 until there are cabins available in NC1. That's why I'm asking.

Also interested if you mean NC1 or a seperate hotel (you mention hotel) nearby? It was understood all new hires would get NC2 initially, has more spaces opened up in NC1 now?

Hi both,
Apologies for the confusion. I am working in the office in NC1. I am staying in a hotel which is roughly a 10 minute drive away from NC1. Hope this clarifies.

Hi Ap, welcome I’ll be out there end of July touch wood and I’m sure a few others too.

i think most people are starting in NC2 unless this has changed more recently (I don’t imagine nc2 is full) but being in a hotel would probably make the transition harder for you in terms of meeting people but in terms of comfort it’s a lot closer than the drive from nc2. Did u request a hotel and/or were given this.

how you finding the heat ; my main dilemma at the moment is finding which work clothes are light but suitable for the office from uk stores. What is the dress code; would linen trousers and a super light short sleeve shirt be ok. I’ve asked the onboarder but no luck as of yet

Hi all

Has anyone moved from Dubai/anywhere in the UAE to Saudi and have brought their car with them? I plan on driving from Dubai to Neom but the rules around what permits you need to bring your car are really unclear unless you are planning on having the car actually shipped over instead of just driving it over the border.

So you are a contractor and not a Neom employee then.....?

After you get an iqama they issue you a 6 month entry/exit visa so you can come and go as you please.
They seem to still issue business visas for some people. Does anyone know what the downsides of being brought on business visa as opposed to work visa are? I was told you could still get iqama from business visa, it would just involve a few extra steps. Did anyone have this experience?

Work visa means Iqama almost instantaneously when you arrive (1 week). A couple of minor things you need to do on arrival.
Business visa generally means the Iqama can take a few months with the additional steps required..

Hi Everyone,

So i have been offered a job at NEOM pending background checks. I wanted to know other than base salary are there any other financial add on’s? In my current work place we get location, transport and western inducement allowances. These end up adding to the overall package.

I was told NEOM would pay 60k SAR per child per year for education, would this be anywhere in the world or specific to the region only?

Appreciate any help on the above or a general financial package breakdown. Most appreciated.

Kind regards,
Rafa
