Visa Requirements for Dubai
For all non-UAE citizens working in Dubai, a residency visa is required in order to obtain a work permit. All applicants are required to pass a health check where individuals who test positive for HIV/AIDS or pulmonary tuberculosis will not be granted residency. For expats moving to Dubai to work, the employing company will usually obtain the correct visas and work permits for employees and their families.
Living in Dubai
The common language in Dubai is Arabic, although English is also spoken by most. UAE (and consequently Dubai) has no income tax on salaries. Health care is not provided for free to expatriates living or working in Dubai, and private hospitals and clinics tend to be expensive, an international health insurance policy is therefore recommended.
International Schools in Dubai
Dubai offers a broad variety of international schools, however competition for places is high, as are the tuition fees. The academic year is divided into 3 terms, starting in September and ending in June. Fees vary between schools and sometimes also between age groups. Additional costs for registration, uniforms, transport and extra expenses might apply.
