    It won't be long before those keyboards start popping out on ebay.
    I found a Russian Cyrillic one for the q10 not so long ago.
    Oh Arabic too!

    I am also looking for a different keyboard. I need a Hebrew/English keyboard.
    Thinking about buying an English only and simply get a Hebrew keyboard from eBay someday.

    I have the same issue. I live in the Netherlands and i wanted the exact same thing.

    As far as i know, blackberry passport with Arabic/English keyboard will have no warranty guarantee outside it's specific region which is UAE.

    You can either try convince some local store to order one for you, and you cover the shipping costs for them, and drop the warranty. (i tried it and it didnt work for me)
    Or you can wait until they release a keyboard replacements which u can try later. (it will drop your current guarantee if u under a contract again)
    Or simply find someone who is going/living there and ask him to buy one for you. (at your own risk obviously)
    last but not least, you can keep an eye on crackberry Marketplace or on eBay for one to pop up.

    I wish you all the best.

    I have bb passport with arabic keyboard bought in Dubai and since keyboard parts are impossible to find anywhere in the world i'm ready to exchange it to regular one with english letters only. Let me know if anybody interested. I'm currently located in Russia.

    Got mine with the English keyboard only because having both just didn't look right and i rarely use it anyway, i use a web virtual keyboard when i must write in Arabic, gets annoying sometimes but it gets the job done. there are a few apps on app world but they are all of bad quality.
