Hi all, I've recently gotten an offer to work in Saudi Aramco and they told me I'd be living in the Dhahran camp. Im a single female and was wondering what it would look like? Im a GC11. How big? Is it a flat or a small house? How new/old is it? would it be segregated as in an all-female camp..etc. Any info would help.
Dear vpainter, I have recently been told I will be receiving an offer to work at Aramco (next week they say) and will be housed on the camp likely in February. I have heard a lot about how they intend to put me in a townhome and I wanted to know if anyone knows what they look like and what single females can expect. Is there still the extreme housing shortage?
Any information would be greatly appreciated. I have read post after post on this, but I think emails are the only option to receive info? Also, the what to bring has not been updated in a few years, so are there still issues with 220V vs. 110V and the water in the homes being salt water and sweet water?
For everyone: 110V appliances are now banned in the kingdom. They will be confiscated if found in a shipment or luggage. Inside Aramco, the houses are being converted to dual oltage as quickly as possible. All the new homes built in the compound are 220V only.
Yes, there is still raw water and sweet water in many homes.
