Nobody ships 4' x 8' sheet material across the Atlantic.
And for the record, all MDF must be sanded and primed before painting....but all of that should be discussed on DIY Screens.
Fixed Screen are ship-able, but most not from the US to the Middle East. EU vendors can do so, but still, their prices...especially for a Gray High Contrast Fixed screen will be quite high.
Better to make a Screen locally, by far.
And 'scapes has it nailed.....it's imperative that you provide details as to your room's lighting conditions, the colors, your viewing distance, and the positioning possibilities of your Projector in order to advise you best no matter what type screen you decide upon, Mfg or DIY.
Even a expensive, Mfg Fixed Screen can fail at it's assigned job if the Room / Projector isn't suited to the task of combining the Screen's reflective abilities to the PJ's own potential...as relates to what the Room's own attributes (...or failings...) introduce into the equation.
