Like anywhere in the world, in Saudi you can live as cheap or expensive as you want.

Food is very cheap especially in the local Indian & Pakistani takeaways. Petrol prices are a joke. Incredibly cheap. You can pick up cheap rental apartments too.

A bachelor in Saudi can save a lot of money if he stays focused. However, a problem with Khobar is its proximity to Bahrain. Bahrain has lots of entertainment areas which can consume a bachelors savings if he doesn't control himself.

Thank you for your kind reply. Another concern is getting thr family status as well. He is nt offered the family status at the moment. Normally how long does it take to get family status?

Are there apartments furnished?

Awaiting feedbacks.

Hi,

If you are coming over on a single status you can wait weeks or even months to bring your wife over. It does, to an extent depend on how cooperative your company is since they will have to arrange all of the necessary paperwork. Apartments are both furnished and unfurnished, the latter being cheaper.
