Default Looking for info on Al Khobar, KSA

Can anyone tell me how much per month to rent a small compound villa in or around Khobar?

Also looking for info and recomendations on primary schools, preferably following the British curriculum.

Thanks!

Rents vary from sr 15,000 per month for small upwards.

Get your firm to rent in their name and them to make payments.

Not like Dubai, here you will be asked to pay just 3 months in advance.

Schooling limited to the British school.

All compounds have buses to and from the school though.

If there is anything else you want to know, just ask.

Thanks very much for the info! There used to be (in 2004) a compound
(I forget the name) in Khobar with a restaurant called 'Wannachop', any idea if it's still going?

Sounds like a BA compound, they had all sorts of weird stuff from the Aussie bar, underground, an Italian restaurant......If it is then you need to be a BA employee.

But no idea if it is still going.

Will they not put you up in Bahrain?

No, the job is in KSA. No chance of commuting from Bahrain, much as I would like to...

Join the British Businessmens Association as soon as you get in. Invites to embassy (bar) and loads of contacts.

Ask for multi visa so you can skip across to Bahrain for a break.

What line of business are you in?
