Members assist Members in the UAE Expat Forums

Our trust-based community was developed to help expatriates in the Emirates swap suggestions and advice on all expat-relevant enquiries, e.g., ʺWhich rules of etiquette should never be violated in public?ʺ or ʺWhat are the best designer outlets for a shopping spree in Dubai?ʺ. In a community that’s all about expat living in the UAE, from shawarma to Leilat al-Meiraj, the participants of the expat forum UAE can find fellow expats and internationally minded locals to receive trustworthy and up-to-date responses. On the InterNations Expat Forum for the UAE, there will always be another expat member to make life abroad easier.

From cultural etiquette to shopping: The Expat Forum UAE leaves no Question unanswered

If you require even more information on expat topics like local organisations and companies in Abu Dhabi or embassies and consulates in Dubai, you could also browse our UAE Expat Guide, another useful resource in addition to the expat forums. Moreover, in our World Forum you can talk about international politics, challenges for expat spouses, intercultural competence and other general expat issues. However, for expat assistance on all local matters - from cultural etiquette to shopping - just join the InterNations UAE expat forums.
