Re: Qatar Living Costs (what do you budget?)

10K on rent
5K on groceries will give you all the home comforts if you need to spend that much
8,5k sounds more like it for socializing, cinema, meals out, Rugby membership, golf etc

Re: for the remaining smokers out there

Re: Offshore Banking

I used the lloyds USD one a few years ago. Pretty good customer service and the initial fee for opening wasn't too much. The internet banking was also good with easy ways of moving money around
