In Arab countries. When arabs welcome guests they'd say : البيت بيتك

The house ( This house ) is yours , meaning that the guest is welcomed and he could do whatever he wants. I think people in English say : ( make it your home ) or something similar.

They say "Make yourself at home" That's the English expression.

This is a direct translation from Spanish: “Mi casa es tu casa.” ...Or if you don’t know the person well enough: “Mi casa es su casa.”

It's rather other way round.
