Can I use my equipment?

You can use all your equipment in Saudi Arabia if the standard voltage in your own country is between 220V-240V. This is case in most of Europe, Australia, the United Kingdom and most countries in Africa and Asia.

If the standard voltage in your country is in the range of 100V-127V (which is most common in the US, Canada and countries in South America) you will need a voltage converter in Saudi Arabia. Without a converter you might damage your electronic equipment.

The standard frequency in Saudi Arabia is 60Hz.

If this frequency differs from the frequency used in your home country, please use caution when plugging in your devices. Check the small print on the device to see if the device can handle the frequency.
