The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a federation of Emirates consisting of Abu Dhabi (the capital), Dubai, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm Al Quwain. GAC was one of the first foreign companies to set up in Dubai in the late 1960s, even before the UAE was established.

According to the UAE’s Federal Competitiveness and Statistics Authority (FCSA), the UAE had a total population of 9.3 million in 2017. The country’s large and vibrant expatriate community makes more than 80% of the population.
Dubai and Abu Dhabi, considered to be the country’s business hubs, are two of the most popular Emirates for expats. Housing, established international schools, healthcare facilities, amenities and lifestyle activities are aplenty. However, selecting the right place to live in can be bewildering, especially when you have to consider the many different factors including cost, location, housing types, lifestyle preferences and more. Your dedicated GAC relocation consultant can offer advice and recommendations based on your needs.
The UAE has a modest dress code - non-Emirati females are encouraged to cover their knees and shoulders in public. When visiting mosques, religious sites or older parts of the city, it is advisable for both men and women to wear loose-fitting clothes that cover the shoulders, arms and legs. Headscarves are required for women when entering mosques.
