    A friend did some work out there a few years back for a European manufacturer and it involved the explosives police, religious police and (explosive) bribes. Quite a difficult place to work in, I understand. Welcome to the forum, anyway :).

    Start with your insurance company and the Saudi Embassy trade section and the UK Foreign Office. Then assume that things will go wrong and you will need extra insurance and extra cash.

    I kid you not, the explosives police apparently had to escort the fireworks everywhere and, when it came to rigging, a whole case or two of 50mm candles along with boxes of shells just went straight into their car boot.
