Read the guide posted above + all forms and instructions for forms. If you have specific questions still, feel free to ask.

The specifics for Riyadh will come later (after I-129F approval). They will send a packet (called packet 3) with items they will need you to complete before they can schedule the interview. Then you will get a packet 4 with interview instructions.
