What do I need to know before moving to Yemen?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Yemen, they said:

"Yemen is a country with a complex political and security situation, so it is important for expats to research the current situation before moving there. Expats should also be aware that the country is facing a humanitarian crisis, with a lack of basic services and infrastructure. It is also important to note that the country is largely cash-based, so expats should bring enough money to cover their expenses. Additionally, expats should be aware that the country is largely conservative and that they should respect local customs and traditions. Finally, expats should be aware that the country is facing a severe water shortage, so they should take steps to conserve water," remarked one expat in Yemen.
