So I am not a huge fan of saudis (read their racism). Dont have a real desire to go back and live there (lived there for three years). However they do have my weakness, madina. I am inshaAllah willing to deal with their racism and all the other **** that they have, if I get a chance to stay in madinah.
My understanding is that you can only live in saudi for an extended period of time if you have a work visa there. What I would ideally like to do inshaAllah in the next 5 years or so is start contract work. I can then work maybe 5-8 months in US and then head out to Madinah for the rest of the year, and repeat. While I am in the US my family will be in Madinah, InshaAllah. Anyone got any ideas about the saudi visa situation. Is there a non-working residence visa there.
I have heard of scholars living in madinah, surely they dont launch business with saudis to secure visas. Any idea on how they do it.
Lastly what are people's thoughts on Dubai. I hear that is very westernized and stuff. it is just like the west in the middle east. skimpy clothing and all.
Is it worth relocating to Dubai. Any ideas.
