Make the most of living and working in Dubai

Expat living in Dubai 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 Dubai takes a lot of time. Our Dubai expat guide is there to make your relocation to Dubai 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 Dubai.

Of course, InterNations is active far beyond Dubai. Please feel free to explore our expatriate guide on living in Amsterdam or living in Hong Kong.
