Are you an expat working and living in the UAE? Or are you preparing to move soon to Abu Dhabi, Sharyah or any other of the Emirati international hotspots?
Expat life in the UAE has much to offer and provides a great intercultural experience – from discovering the countryside like the tiny emirate of Ajman, learning how Emirati people celebrate Leilat al-Meiraj, up to tasting the UAE’s favorite dishes such as shawarma.
Moving to and living in the UAE requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Emirati expat life. Living abroad in the UAE raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to the UAE?ʺ, ʺWhich rules of etiquette should never be violated in public?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Abu Dhabi should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Emirati municipality in Dubai?ʺ
Collecting all that information on working and living in the UAE is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for the United Arab Emirates aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in the UAE. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from local organisations and companies, to travel & accommodation or embassies and consulates, up to culture & sights. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺWhat are the best designer outlets for a shopping spree in Dubai?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.
Moreover, our expat directory for the UAE includes recommended listings of expat institutions and relocation services, e.g. doctors and dentists or expat insurance providers. As a member, you’ll also be able to share your experiences of living abroad in the UAE with your fellow expats on the InterNations Forum. We are looking forward to welcoming you with a heart-felt As-salām 'alaykum from our expats living and working in the UAE.
