- Search for jobs while in your home country; you’ll often be interviewed by phone or Skype, rather than here in the UAE. Once you have a job offer, your employer will start to process your residence visa. Depending on your contract, your employer may pay for your flight to Dubai (and often tickets for any family members), one month’s temporary accommodation, shipping costs, vehicle hire, and the services of a relocation company to help you find a new home.
- Arrive in Dubai on a visit visa, which means that you have 30 days (or up to 60 days if you renew it) to legally look for work and live in the country.
- You may already be living and working in the UAE and looking to transfer jobs. In this instance, you will need to cancel your existing residence visa; your new employer will then sponsor you on a new residence visa.
Also, check listings on online versions of international newspapers as companies within the UAE often post jobs on these sites. Websites for The Guardian and The Times newspapers in the UK and The Washington Post in the US are often a good resource. You can also upload your CV to sites like monstergulf.com, naukrigulf.com, bayt.com and gulftalent.com.
Job advertisements are posted on dubizzle.com and expatwoman.com. Also try contacting companies directly and start networking, using sites such as linkedin.com.
