living In Saudi

The Most Preferred Place in The Middle East for Business.

Saudi Arabia is embarking upon an historic social, cultural and economic transformation to ensure long-term prosperity for all. An ambitious nation with a rich culture and history is ready to welcome investors and their families.

Here’s a summary of what the Saudi Arabia is like, and what you can expect when you live here.


The climate will depend on where you are in the Kingdom but, in general, the summer lasts from May until September with the hottest months being June to August. There are strong winds, during June and July, which pick up quantities of sand and dust and are known locally as “shamals.”

Winter (December to February) is characterized by relatively mild weather interrupted by stormy periods with some rain, thunderstorms, and blowing dust.


The basic monetary unit used in Saudi Arabia is the Saudi Riyal (SR). The Saudi Riyal is printed in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 50, 100, and 500 bills/notes. The coins used are called “halala” and are issued in denominations of 5, 10, 25, 50, and 100. One Riyal consists of 100 halalas. The Saudi Riyal exchange rate is fixed to the U.S. dollar at SR3.75 to one U.S. dollar and fluctuates in value, relative to other currencies, in line with the U.S. dollar.


A good road network connects all the major towns and cities in Saudi Arabia. The roads are often congested with heavy traffic, and driving conditions can often be more challenging than you may be used to.

Also, there are now 5 international airports and 26 internal Airport, in addition to railways and bus transportation between the cities of Saudi Arabia
