Why Work in Dubai?



Hi, Sunil here with an article on why work in Dubai?

This was a written piece turned in by our good friend Fatima.

Fatima does not have a very good command of the English language and requested that I “tweak” her article to sound appropriate grammatically and so that it is easy to read.

Fatima is a computer engineer from India who is currently working in Dubai.

Her article was inspired by two things: first, an entry in our quarterly free vacation giveaway and second, her desire to answer the question many ask: why work in Dubai?

If you have read some of my discussions on working in Dubai and the numerous advantages, you will see that a lot of what Fatima has written about agrees with the information I talk about in my articles.

These benefits of working in Dubai are very well known and many expats just like Fatima are taking advantage of them.

And just to add my two cents, this list is applicable not only to Dubai, but also to Abu Dhabi or the entire country of UAE for that matter.

Numero Uno # 1 - Tax Free Income

Free income (unearned) is considered “Haram”, or forbidden in the Arab world. You or your company’s earnings will not be taxed in Dubai. Not only that, you do not pay property tax either.

#2 - Excellent Perks

In addition to a 30 day paid leave (exclusive of holidays), employers in Dubai are known to give generous total compensation packages including insurance, airfare tickets, housing allowance, vehicle and petrol allowance, tuition for kids.

#3 - Working with the Best

Whether it is equipment, facilities or people, Dubai has the best. The employers pay top dollar to bring the best equipment and people to Dubai. A lot of money is spent in building the best facilities to house those people and equipment. You are surely to gain a lot from your experience working in Dubai.

#4 - International Experience

Employers all around the world love International work experience. It shows flexibility, ability to adapt to change (new environment) and perceived to provide a fresh perspective on looking into business from a different perspective. No matter where you go for work, your experience in Dubai will help you greatly.

#5 - Advancement

For the same reason as #4 above, your experience in Dubai will help you get ahead in your company faster. If you are from a country like American, coming to Dubai will mean a higher salary and a much better position. You can expedite your career path by taking up a job opportunity in Dubai.

#6 - Beautiful Weather and Environment

It is always summer in Dubai. 9 out of 12 months are absolutely gorgeous, with the remaining three very hot. The good news is that every place you go to in Dubai will have their air conditioners on, so that is not a problem.
