Many Indians choose to stay in Khobar City (around King Khalid Street) or in Thougbah which is very near Khobar City.

A lot depends on your place of work and your budget when choosing wher to stay. Not sure where the Samsung office is within Khobar.

Your package should include rental assistance, medical and schooling (if you have should have children).

Good Luck

I agree with the above comments.

You will also need to find out if the contract in Saudi is a single contract or if there is provision for you to take your family. Find out what you are entitled to. They should provide accommodation, health cover and return flights home as a minimum.

There are a lot of Indian people in KSA, mainly I find, from Karola (I hope the spelling is right). All friendly & ready to help.

Hello achchu,

You might also want to consider moving to a compound, especially if Samsung will pay for your accomodation. I had a friend who live in Al-Bilad compound. There are lots of apartment buildings as well. There's one area (I'm not sure what it's called but it's around the AlRashed Mall) and it's surrounded by apartment buildings. I heard there's also a new apartment building/hotel called the Sand Rose in downtown khobar. I think it's important to choose an area that's commercial so that your wife can easily move around.

hope this helped..
