Standard of Living
If you are planning on moving to Saudi Arabia then you will be pleased to know that there is a good standard of living, with government involvement in programs that are designed to reduce poverty. There is also free education and healthcare for Saudi citizens, as well as a plot of land and a loan to build a house. The cost of living is considerably cheaper than the UK and can be up to 60% cheaper.
House prices are somewhat cheaper than the UK and rent prices are also considerably cheaper. However, the market has been relatively unstable in recent months, with a drop in value in the residential property. Although this can be good in a buyer’s market, it is worth doing some research and considering renting depending on how long you are moving for.
There are plenty of job opportunities in Saudi Arabia with a large number of opportunities in the construction industry. There are laws though that favours Saudi nationals, which makes it slightly harder for expatriates. However, businesses are still hiring expats and there is plenty of opportunities, but you should look for a position before you move to the country.
Education is free for Saudi nationals but expats don’t have access to public schools. There are however plenty of high standard international and private schools in Saudi Arabia, but places can be limited here with high fees. It is worth looking into the schooling situation before you decide to make the move.
Saudi Arabia also has a public healthcare system that is free for all nationals. However, health insurance is compulsory for all non-Saudi nationals and is even compulsory for Saudi nationals working in the private sector. It is important that you factor the cost of this into your budget when planning to move to Saudi Arabia.
