I'll be residing in Riyadh soon. With accommodation, transportation and meal allowance provided by my soon-to-be employer, will 16,000 SAR per month be enough? I'm leaving the family behind for the moment. Can I save at least 10,000 SAR per month?
I have been offered a package of 187,500 SAR p.a by my to-be -employer. Is this enough for a family of three (including my 1 yr daughter and my wife). how much can i expect to save leading a ncomfortable life. Also, how much could be the housing expenses(rent).? Thanks
1. House rent in Khobar (or the Eastern region) is a little more costly than other regions. Comes next Jeddah then Riyadh. I dont know about expat compounds but for a mid-class flat (3-4 Rooms with a kitchen and 2 bathrooms ) you can expect rent of SR 18,000 per annum. Please notice that rents are usually paid annually or half-annually in advance. Having said that, Life in Saudi Arabia is very economic if you spend wisely. foods and goods are very cheep since KSA practice free trade with a tax free economy.
2. What is the normal range for an accepted salary depends on you. If you settled the housing rent then it all depends on you. no one dies out of hunger here
Generally I think SR 4,000 pm is the minumum acceptable salary if you are college graduate but salaries vary very much depending on your job and your degree but usually it will be in the range of SR 4000 - SR 8000 per month for common jobs (accountant / architect / IT technician / etc). Medical jobs usually have higher salaries but varies depending on the working place I think it would be around SR 5000 - 8000 pm for nursing jobs in normal hospitals and SR 7000 - 20,0000 pm in large hospitals ( National Guard Hospitals / Armed Forces hospitals / Aramco Hospitals ) doctors are even paid more usually between SR 10,000 - 25,000 pm.
3. Life cost: as I have mentioned before if you settle housing everything else is cheap. I think SR 5000 pm will cover the costs of a family of three very conveniently but will not save much.
4. Banks and Oil companies usually pay high salaries. If you get an offer in a Bank or an Oil company , don't miss it.
5. Companies usually (90% of the time) offer housing / medical insurance for you and your family / Air ticket fare for you and your family annually. Make sure you get it and it will save you much of the costs here.
I have an offer of 22500 US dollars per year plus free accomodation and flights. I want to bring my wife and my two year old son.
Can you leave normal and put away some money withthis income and also how is the leaving there from woman and children point of view.
I live in Orlando Florida and would like to export something to Saudi Arabia? What do you need there? I live close to a very large auto auction where the dealers go and buy their cars. I was a marble importer of custom statues until our economy slowed and custom gold leaf furniture.

i have a bachelor degree in English,and i am working in riyadh /saudi arabia for 1600$ a month
as a training coordinator assistant.and i got another job offer as an English teacher for the same salary. i think 1600$ is considered minimum wage in the united states,and its called poverty line.but if i were a foreigner i would probably make around 5000$ doing the same job. so if you are a saudi like me that means we got screwed.
