Make the most of living and working in Abu Dhabi

Expat living in Abu Dhabi raises plenty of questions, for instance: ʺWhat are the requirements from Emirian authorities to get a residence permit?”, ʺWhat are the best designer outlets for a shopping spree in Dubai?ʺ, or ”Who can recommend doctors and dentists in town?”

Finding all this expat information about living and working in Abu Dhabi takes a lot of time. Our Abu Dhabi expat guide is there to make your relocation to Abu Dhabi as easy as possible. Starting with embassies and consulates to information about travel & accommodation, the guide covers all the different aspects of expat life in Abu Dhabi.
