Is Dubai good for jobs

Job boards

The UAE is an attractive place for European workers due to its enormous economic growth and the pleasant living conditions - due to the good infrastructural development, the favorable tax environment (no direct income tax), the low crime rate and an overall favorable climate.

To take up a job in the UAE, fluent knowledge of English, which is the predominant working language here, or of Arabic (the official language) are essential. As a rule, Europeans do not require any knowledge of Arabic in addition to English. However, they increase the applicant's chances, make work easier - especially when dealing with business contacts with emiratis and authorities - and the daily dealings with only limited English-speaking workers in the low-wage sector (taxi drivers, salespeople, etc.).

The United Arab Emirates issue EU citizens with a free entry visa (stamp) at passport control at the airport, which entitles them to stay for up to 60 days. For a longer stay and to take up employment, however, a residence permit and a work permit are required.
