Where should I setup a bank account in Jizan?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Jizan what banks they use and there advice about banking. They advised...

"Expats considering retirement in Jizan should be aware of several key factors. Firstly, it's important to understand that Saudi Arabia is a deeply conservative country with strict laws and customs, particularly regarding dress and behavior. Expats are expected to respect these customs and laws, which include restrictions on alcohol and certain types of entertainment. Secondly, the cost of living in Jizan is relatively low compared to other cities in Saudi Arabia, but it's still higher than in many Western countries. Expats should ensure they have a sufficient retirement income to cover their living expenses. Thirdly, healthcare in Saudi Arabia is generally of a high standard, but it can be expensive for expats. It's advisable to have comprehensive health insurance to cover any medical costs. Fourthly, the climate in Jizan is hot and humid, with temperatures often exceeding 40 degrees Celsius in the summer. Expats should be prepared for this and take necessary precautions to stay healthy in the heat. Fifthly, while Arabic is the official language of Saudi Arabia, English is widely spoken in Jizan, particularly in business and healthcare settings. However, learning some basic Arabic can be beneficial for everyday life. Lastly, while Jizan is generally safe, there are occasional security incidents due to its proximity to the Yemen border. Expats should stay informed about the security situation and follow any advice or instructions from local authorities," wrote a member who made the move to Jizan, Saudi Arabia.
