    • Bringing a dog to Dhahran

      Dhahran May 11, 2016 at 3:13 AM

      Just wondering if you could help.
      My partner has been offered a job in Dhahran. 2 years ago we rescued a 6 year old Staffie who had been in kennels for two years, he's a wonderful dog, just loves everyone. He doesn't like the cold but does like the heat. Do you think he could cope in Dhahran if we were very careful? The decision to move depends on him as we wont rehome him.

      Thanks for reading this and I look forward to some help.

      I am planning to visit Saudi Arabia from UAE on Umrah Visa by road on my own vehicle along with my family. However I have been told my Al Madani Travels and Al Quds Travels the official Saudi Embassy appointees for Consultancy services that by road travel has been stopped and number to people who had tried to visit KSA by road on their own private vehicles have been turned away from Ghweifaat / Batha border. Is it true?

    • Wedding in Makkah

      Saudi Arabia Sep 7, 2015 at 8:03 PM


      I am looking to get married in Makkah as my family and my fiance's family are planning to go for umrah in December. Both families will be on umrah visa and none of us has iqamah. Is it possible to do nikah in Makkah like that? Does anyone know of official requirements?

      Secondly, I was wondering if anyone can recommend a make up artist in Jeddah. A lot of people have recommended Nilo Haq to me and while I really like her work, I am not willing to spend so much money on something that I will wash a few hours later. I am looking for minimal make up anyways so would somebody be able to recommend a make up artist who does a reasonable job for a reasonable price?

    • Marriage between two expats in Saudi Arabia

      Saudi Arabia Jul 26, 2015 at 9:24 PM

      Hello, I have asked our embassies and waiting to hear from them. I thought I would try here just in case someone knows or has experienced marrying in KSA.

      I was wondering what are the requirements for marriage in Saudi Arabia between an American Citizen and an Indian citizen? My fiance needs to stay in Saudi Arabia one more year and he would like me to be there but we should be married. He told me that we could be married there, but I am not sure if this is true or if it would even be a legal wedding.  Of course, I prefer marriage in my home country or in our original wedding location, Sri Lanka, but as I said due to his limitations to leave Saudi Arabia now, we cannot. What can we do?
