Relocating internationally can be challenging, due to the number of factors to be considered: airport do’s and don’ts, cultural customs, familiarising yourself with the new geography and local legislation.
Executive Relocations’ consultant appointed to your relocation will acquaint you with all of this and more – including ensuring that you’re prepared for the following:
- Paintings, books or magazines which do not adhere to the UAE’s religious values
- Non-Islamic religious pamphlets for missionary activities
- Fireworks and ammunition
- Medicines classified as banned or restricted substances
- Before expatriates can apply for a residency permit in Dubai, they first need to obtain a Health Card by undergoing health tests within Dubai.
- There are minimum salary requirements for expatriates in the UAE looking to sponsor their family or parents to join them.
- Although alcohol is sold in licensed bars and restaurants, drinking in public is prohibited.
- Conservative clothing is advised, and at certain religious sites both men and women have to cover bare shoulders, arms and legs; and women have to wear headscarves.
