What do I need to know before moving to Jeddah?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Jeddah, they said...

"Expatriates moving to Jeddah should be aware that the city is subject to the laws and customs of Saudi Arabia, which are based on Islamic principles. It is important to be aware of the dress code, which requires women to cover their hair and body in public, and for both men and women to dress modestly. Expats should also be aware that alcohol and pork products are strictly prohibited in the country. Additionally, it is important to be aware of the local customs and etiquette, such as avoiding public displays of affection and refraining from discussing religion or politics. Finally, expats should be aware that the summer months in Jeddah can be extremely hot and humid," commented one expat who made the move to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
