Moving to Saudi Arabia > Khamis Mushayt >

An Expat Talks about Moving to Khamis Mushayt, Saudi Arabia

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Khamis Mushayt

Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.

If you can help it, do not bring household goods or electronics, because many people have found their stuff to be either broken or simply gone. Handcarry your valuables: important papers, pictures, cd's (get one of those binders) etc. Other than that, pretty much everything you need/desire is available.

What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?

Do your research!

What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

We live on a secured compound with the majority being British, Ozzies and Americans. Most expats in Khamis live on some kind of compound.

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

We were provided with housing, but if you're not, do a lot of research!!! Talk to ex-expats, search message boards, etc etc. But make sure you'll have this all arranged before you leave. The housing / compounds in Kingdom vary extremely from shacks to luxurious villas.
