7 ways to spot a Wannabe Saudi

There are some expats living in Saudi Arabia who love to act as if they are Saudi just to seek some sort of better social status. We call them wannabe Saudis, and there are 7 ways to spot them.

White Kandoora

The white Kandoora is a standard outfit for a Saudi. A Saudi takes it easy to wear it everywhere and every time such as going bowling, jogging, or casually.

If people find a person wearing a white Kandoora, they can automatically assume he is a Saudi. Thus, wannabe Saudis can also take advantage of this.


Beards are a specialty of the Saudis, and they do them in a different and unique style. Each style reflects your personality and indicates the people you belong to.

Thus, the wannabe locals also go to the barber and tend to get a different beard to look like a Saudi.


The wannabe Saudis are the most patriotic people in Saudi Arabia. They will bear their Facebook cover photo with the Saudi Arabia flag or a photo of Mohammed bin Salman.

You will find them celebrating every small Saudi event. You will see their extra patriotic comments about Saudi Arabia on social media. Besides this, you will see their car bumpers decorated with the Saudi Arabian flag.

Saudi accent

Most expats living in Saudi Arabia adopt a Saudi accent and try to maintain a commanding tone. Saudis are always seen speaking with a feeling of superiority.

An Arab expat in Saudi Arabia speaks with a Saudi accent, whereas an English expat will start pronouncing their “p” with “b” just to give a Saudi look.


You will find such people always trying to relate their story by saying that their ancestors built this country and they will arrive there at any time as their passports are on the way.

On the other hand, you will find some people saying that their parents rejected Saudi Arabia visas because the government doesn’t allow them to keep dual passports.

Saudi friends

A Wannabe Saudi is always seen hanging out with his Saudi Crew. They always try to find a Saudi group until they are accepted by one because if you hang out with Saudis or keep Saudi friends, then people will know that you are a Saudi.

Strong mentality

The wannabe Saudis have a great mindset, and they can do anything to stay in Saudi Arabia. They strongly believe that they will live in Saudi Arabia and settle thereafter.
