I heard foreigners have to live in compounds. How much does that suck?

You could read what has been posted in this thread. :wink:
How long does it take to get a visa there?

The hiring entities can/will tell you that.
Google is your friend: search terms "teaching English" and "Saudi Arabia" will bring up enough stuff to keep anybody busy... ... a-508.html
PS: The site linked here mentions that single women cannot go to S.A. - that does not match the fact that i met several single female nurses from European countries there, including a few that were traveling in the south of the country...

Hosting resources in several countries for small projects (use your own domain or one that I prepare). Cheap web and mail hosting ($0.50/mo); short or long term. FTP access and control panel. Cheap domain names ($8-12/year). Manage your own site/ mailboxes or have me do it. It's never been easier to get your own mail address or website. :-)

Jeez mate, 70% of all posts on Forumosa are trite. Thanks for drawing attention to mine.

We're talking about the UAE because we expanded the discussion to include another arabic country. That's why there are posts mention it (the UAE).

Why are the majority of your posts to Forumosa so surly?
