5 reasons expats in KSA remain poor

There are 5 reasons some expats remain poor even after spending 10+ years in Saudi Arabia.

They support their families too much

These expatriates work hard and earn solely to support their families overseas. They send almost all of their money to them, without saving much for them.

In return, these families don’t feel sympathy and overlook the sacrifices made by these expats. They unnecessarily spend money in malls and visiting high-end places.

2919 5 Reasons why expatriates living in Saudi Arabia remain poor throughout their lives

Overly generous

These expats are way too generous and spend almost all of their salaries buying gifts not only for their families but also for friends, colleagues, neighbors, and whoever they meet.

Moreover, on family reunions, these expats need to be generous either to show off their money or because of family pressure. They might end up taking loans before going on vacations

Lack of communication

These expatriates fail to communicate well with their families, sending them money regularly without inquiring what the family actually needs.

As a result, when they come back home, they are gifted with loads of debt receipts, empty bank accounts, and credit card bills and are also blamed for not being open.

Forbidden relations

Expats or spouses overseas get involved in forbidden relationships due to long-distance relationships. The family may destroy and above all, this adds more to the expenses. I believe that most expats are not involved in such kinds of activities but there are always some exceptions.

Too vulnerable to scammers

These expats easily become prey to scammers.  The scams include; getting rich quickly with few steps, like deals, and require investing money and the only way they can retrieve their money back is by recruiting more individuals. Other scams involve investing in plots or businesses which do not really exist or shut down soon.
