When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to UAE, they said...

"Remember your purpose of coming to the city, many cases you earn lots but also spends lots," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Dubai, UAE.

"Before retiring in the UAE, expats should be aware of the cost of living, which is generally higher than in other countries. They should also be aware of the local laws and regulations, as well as the cultural norms and expectations. Additionally, expats should research the healthcare system and the availability of medical insurance. It is also important to understand the taxation system and the process for obtaining a residence visa. Finally, expats should familiarize themselves with the local language, as English is not widely spoken in the UAE," commented one expat who made the move to UAE.
