Re: KSA Job Offer

Hi. I’m in Al Nakhla. Facilities are good and it’s useful to be right next door to a big supermarket. Had a visit to Arizona - the layout of the villa is probably better than here for families and...

Re: KSA Job Offer

Not proper off road, but we’ve been down a dirt track basically to the beach near the camp where the wife is. Two trips and only one puncture so far :rofl: Some of the guys have been out into the...

Re: KSA Job Offer

There are loads of Toyota FJ Cruisers about, which look like fun. No idea how they drive though.

Re: KSA Job Offer

Almost exclusively 4x4s, certainly in the compound, although I’ve already seen Mclarens, Aston Martins and Corvettes. I would get something big to be honest - the traffic is mental. You’ll want to...

Re: KSA Job Offer

Ah, that is painful... Hopefully flights will have opened up a bit now. Some of the guys in the group we came out with had to fly from places like Japan and Georgia to Heathrow then out to Riyadh...

Re: KSA Job Offer

Have a look at the Al Nakhla Instagram page, they are better than my pics. I’m in a 2 bed villa at the moment, which is a decent size - 2 living rooms, 2 en-suite, maid’s room etc. The guys who are...

Re: KSA Job Offer

Watching football on the iPad and it’s half time :-)

We are on a 12 month, 90 day visa at the moment. No medical to get that, but we will need one soon as we transfer over to the Iqama. Just us,...

Re: KSA Job Offer

I think it’s pretty mixed. Of the guys I know that are going two are German and one American.. The thing that sold it was the golf course and the farm animals, which are great for their kids.

We...

Re: KSA Job Offer

So, we are in Al Nakhla currently. I’ve got no frame of reference, but it seems fairly quiet. Plenty of cars here, but the communal areas are not crowded at all. We won’t be staying here long term,...

Re: KSA Job Offer

I don’t think they are but we have some kind of special ones. We are out earlier than expected, we thought it would be the middle of September.

We have to have a COVID PCR test done to fly, which...

Re: Camo in KSA

Of course. It’s just the fact that you can buy camo pattern stuff in the malls that is confusing.

Re: Camo in KSA

I’m 6ft 7 so stand out pretty much everywhere unfortunately.

Might as well leave it in the U.K. then.

Re: Camo in KSA

Yeah, I wouldn’t wear it at all. Just want to have it for when we go somewhere colder.

Camo in KSA

Does anyone know what is acceptable and what is not? I read that camouflage clothing is banned although the references seem to be talking about military clothing, yet on the Next.sa website there...

Re: KSA Job Offer

Yeah - we need to get everything packed up and into storage and that's pretty much a fixed date. Might well be couch surfing from September!!

Re: KSA Job Offer

Seems like no normal visas are being issued right now. There's a repatriation flight in the middle of August and talk of the Bahrain border being opened at some point, but nothing firm as yet. End...

Re: Neom City

Well, we will be on our way at the end of August sometime. I've always said, the best time to make life altering decisions is in the middle of a global pandemic!!

Re: KSA Job Offer

Not yet as we are working on an August date, but I get the impression they can move quicker if needed.

It's the wife's job, but not yet I think. Although they did want her to fly out last week, so it might all be fine.

If we don't get a commercial flight there'll be a chartered one as I understand it.

In terms of saving, I guess it's all about balance and it's probably no good comparing with other people. There'll be those who are out there to save every penny and don't go out...

Re: KSA Job Offer

We are in a similar boat and should be out in a couple of months. We'll be in Al Nakhla to start with, and it does look nice. Al Bustan was the other one I saw that was along the same kind of lines.
