Cost of Living In Bahrain


I am being posted to Bahrain to work and is given 1300BHD + 300BHD (for housing allowance).

I will like to know with such an amount is that possible for me (only myself) to have a decent and comfortable life in Bahrain?

300BD is very very low. Rents in Bahrain are only going one way at the moment..

It depends upon what you are used to, in terms of accomodation, and what you aspire to in Bahrain.

You 'might' get accomodation for 300BD but it will be very very small, unfurnished, probably not in a very nice area, probably not maintained very well and you may well have to share.

As an estimate, a decent 1/2 BR flat FF in a nice area would cost in the region of 600BD per month, maybe more by now..

In terms of the salary you mention, you also need to consider if this is with a car, health care provision, paid leave etc..

Hope this gives you a bit more info.
