What should I pack when moving to Ajman?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Ajman to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Ajman, it's important to pack lightweight and breathable clothing due to the hot and humid climate. However, remember to respect the local culture and customs, so pack modest clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. Don't forget to pack a good pair of sunglasses, a hat, and high SPF sunscreen to protect yourself from the intense sun. Bring your essential toiletries, but keep in mind that most items can be easily purchased there. If you have prescription medications, bring enough to last for your initial period, along with a copy of your prescription. Pack your important documents such as passport, visa, driver's license, medical records, and educational certificates. Also, bring a few passport-sized photos as they are often required for various documents. If you're planning to work or study, pack your laptop, work materials, or school supplies. Remember to pack a universal power adapter as the UAE uses a different plug type. Bring some of your favorite non-perishable food items from home, especially if they are hard to find in the UAE. Lastly, pack items that will make your new place feel like home, such as photos, small keepsakes, or your favorite books," remarked another expat who made the move to Ajman, the UAE.
