    Dammam is the adinstration capital of the eastern province of Saudi Arabia. the local government is located in dammam, as wel as main government departments. On the other hand, Khobar is more "libral" or let's say "open" and comercial. Big companies are located in Khobar and also the regional branches of some Banks. in terms of cost, dammam is bigger than khobar thus it might be easier and cheeper to find accommodation in dammam, but also Khobar is good to live in since a lot of expareiates live there (All Europians and Americans are living in compounds in Khobar) and there is a big Asian Community there and this does not mean that Dammam is only for Saudis.. also dammam host a big number of Asians.
    cost of living depends on you actually.. there are big and modern Malls to shop from and also there are cheap and "traditional" shops to go to.. generally speaking it's much cheaper to live in Saudi Arabia rather than any Gulf Country (Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, UAE - Dubai).. i can not give you an exact amount but it is really manageable to live here. the accommodation cost depends on the area (which district) and the building itself, so i can not give you an advice. I know SARACO but i can neither recommend it nor warn from joining it.. i do not know about it very much. wish you all the LUCK! and a pleasent and a success stay here in Saudi Arabia.

    Dear Mohammed,

    Dear Mohammed,

    Greetings!!

    Thanks a ton for your mail.
    Sorry for troubling you again.

    Please let me know if the visa is once stamped without family status, is it possible for my company that they can change my visa to family status eligibility, once I landed in the kingdom.

    Because as far as I know once the visa is stamped under one category i will have to work under same category till I am there in the kingdom... if not please correct me... if atleast the same can be changed after the duration of the visa.

    Thanks again. GOD bless.

    Hello Jack : Visa is normally for the employee and depending on the profession you are automatically eligible or illegible for family status. So first check the profession on your visa.
