Connected to Saudi Arabia, the small state of Bahrain sits on the southwestern coast of the Persian Gulf. Bahrain is currently home to around 12,000 British expats and is a lucrative option for those seeking a new life abroad with financial prospects. Previously dependent on oil, Bahrain now has a diverse economy thanks to areas such as banking and tourism. This has made a plethora of job opportunities for high skilled employees. Bahrain is an economic free zone, meaning it’s residents don’t pay tax. This also makes the country a very attractive place for expats to live.
Bahrain has one of the most advanced healthcare systems in the gulf and their public healthcare is largely free or heavily subsidised. Many employers, however, offer private healthcare and many expatriates choose to pay for private healthcare when moving to the country. In regards to education in Bahrain, no matter your nationality, there are schools that cater for all people in the country. However, fees for some of the top schools can be expensive and places are often limited so make sure you check this out before moving to the region. You can expect to pay around £3,000 per term, which is comparable to some of the private schools in the UK.
The weather in Bahrain is very warm, especially in summers where the humid weather can hit highs of 50 degrees. Bahrain has a rich cultural history, and whilst Islam is the main religion there, Bahrainis are known for their lenience towards other faiths and beliefs.
