Further Information about Expat Life and the Local Economy in Sanaa

Some of the buildings in Sanaa are of great cultural significance, as the city has been inhabited for more than 2,500 years and was made a World Heritage Site in 1986 by the United Nations. Among the historic sights are the 1,400-year-old Great Mosque of Sanaa and the Bāb al-Yaman, the 1,000-year-old gate in the city wall. Sanaa is a fascinating mix of the historic and the modern, as it also houses a 25,000-seater football stadium, home to the Yemen national soccer team. Much of Sanaa's employment is in the public sector, while other jobs are in trade and industry. An English-language education is provided at Sanaa International School, founded in 1971. A 300-bed hospital is located near Sanaa International Airport, the main domestic and international airport in Yemen.
