Moving To Dubai

Are you thinking of moving to Dubai? The majority of expats are from Pakistan or India but the country is becoming much more popular with people moving from Britain. The three most popular destinations are Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. If you do decide to make the move, you can look forward to a busy social life, beautiful beaches and the chance to explore a very different way of living. Recently the number of British expats moving to Dubai has increased, with most choosing to work in the oil, banking, construction or IT trades.
However, the cost of living in Dubai can be very expensive but in some destinations it is possible to achieve a higher quality of life then in the UK, because you are not paying any income tax.

You will need to obtain a work permit, a residence visa and an Emirates ID card and before you leave you will need to get all relevant birth and marriage certificates legalised by the UK Foreign Office.
Any medical treatment you need must be paid for, so make sure that your employer is offering you medical insurance as part of your job package.
