$700 salary in Erbil, is this enough?

Hello,

Hi, Im Fred, from the Philippines. I got an offer from a certain company to work in Erbil in a restaurant. The company will shoulder all expenses including food and housing/accommodation. The salary offer is only $700.00. Is this already enough for other personal expenses (since food and housing is free) to survive in Erbil?

Please enlighten me.

Thank you so much.

Fred.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the reply.

i haven't seen the full contract details yet,
but as to with the visa thing, the company will process it for me. my employer is not an iraqi, they are kuwaiti. Where were you in Iraq by the way?

Thanks again.

Fred.
