URGENT !!! SAUDI ARABIA
I have got an offer to work for a MNC HAVING OFFICE in Saudi Arabia, JEDDAH & RIYADH.
Can any body tell me what will be the cost of living there ??
The basic salary hike is 28% from my current Basic in QR.
The company is providing me Housing Allowance of SR 3850/-
I am married with one kid.
Thanks in advance for your reply...
cost of living is cheaper in Saudi Arabia
everything is cheaper in Saudi. even the loan from the bank is cheap...it's almost 10% of the cost of living in Qatar compare to Saudi. you might also still watch blue mountain on your tv, hehehe...but I haven't heard such a huge salary as what you are going to receive. you'll probably hold a very very good position...
Saudi Arabia is much cheaper than Qatar. Rents are probably half and food is around 25% cheaper..
thanks you miguel. any reason for leaving saudi for qatar?
im living in KSA for 20 years now. i'm hired in qatar and i will transfer to qatar next month.
KSA is cheaper compare in UAE, Qatar Bahrain & Kuwait
housing i have rented is 55,000.00 SAR per year
it is 7 bedroom, 3 toilets, 2 kitchen, 2 saloon
i have family here and spending approx 1500 per month for food and my baby food
everything is cheaper here in KSA but it is very strict here.
Go and get it..
Start packing your belongings.
Thanks Header !! It is SAR-12k Basic
How much exactly is the offered salary, we can not read your mind... Go and get it, Cost of living in Saudi is very much less compare to other GCC, I ve been there for 3 years, you can save your basic saary(salary + 28% x salary in qatar). Good luck to your 28%
better stay here in Qatar..
my cousins are staying in a campound. 2 bedrooms and are paying arround 18000 per year.
trust me, there its better than doha to save money, and its good that u have ur family with u, so no one will tell u u cant go to the mall if u r not a family.
food u dont have to think about it. its cheap as well.
local people in Qatar they go to KSA to buy cars and bring it here, cause u cant compare the 2 prices.
jeddah its kind of open minded city, girls they dont have to cover the head.
trus me, there u will save much more than what are u saving here.
that you will be able to get your family in Saudi Arabia
As many Saudi Companies don't give NOC for family visa !!!
Be careful !!!
its up to you whether you're getting below QRS 3000 or more than if you're a type of person like one day millioner then nothing right so whether in qatar or saudi just knw your limits then you'll be fine.
Thank you and Best wishes

Don't wait a single minute also in Qatar. Go to KSA. With 3850 SR. you will find a big apartment including 2 bedroom & can maintain your food expenses. I was in Jeddah before for 1.5 years in 2005-2007. I used to live in a house which was SR. 1800 per month & I found same category house in Qatar is more than 6000 QR. Everything is cheap there even car. Example: Hoda Accord 2009 (2.4ltr) in Qatar is 104,000 QR. In Saudi it's 85,000 SR. and in Bahrain it's 76,00 BHD (76,000 QR.)
I think your housing allownac is enough for your food expenses & to pay house rent. No need to touch your basic.
So, take your decision now.
Yes.. I know. Thanks for your reminder, but the question i post if some one has saudi experience..
This is Qatar Living.
