#Hansraj Singh on Apr 10, 2014 :
Also, apart from rent you should also take into account the other fixed expenses like
1. DEWA - Min of AED 150 for water and electricity only
2. Housing Fee - Paid to Municipality (5% of you annual rent but divided over 12 months and included in DEWA. So a minimum of AED200 per month)
3. Internet + TV Cable (AED 325 per month)
4. Chiller (Min charges of AED300 per month. However, in some localities chiller and cooking gas is free).

Apart from this, one needs to pay 5% commission to the agent and 5% security deposit to the landlord. Also rent are paid in advance and generally paid in 2/4 cheques. Some, landlord are even asking to pay the entire annual rent upfront i.e. in 1 cheque. For families with children, the entire annual school fee has to be paid in advance.

Please keep all these things in mind when taking your decision.
#Hansraj Singh on Apr 10, 2014 :
@ Pee Gee. Not sure if you have already made a decision. The compensation offered to you is less in my comparison. Generally, one should look at getting around 3x their Indian salary when coming to Dubai. If you are looking for a one bed accommodation in new dubai area, you will easily end up spending 15,000 per month (10,000 rent + Food (for 3 people) 4,500 + School 1500). Transportation and entertainment expense will be extra. So take your decision accordingly. Cheers

#PeeGee on Mar 28, 2014 :
I am getting an offer for AED 35000 per month. I am presently staying at New Delhi. A family of three, with six year daughter going to class 1. The mentioned amount is inclusive of Basic, HRA, Travel and 1 child education. Other than these, company would be paying me a lump sum of AED 10000 as settlinbg allownace. Also I will get 1-3 months bonus, Medical for the family and return flight fare to India once in a year.

Is it a good pakcage to move to UAE? I am drawing about INR 42 Lacs per annum ( before tax) in India.

Appreciate your comment and advise.
#Moe on Mar 20, 2014 :
Mo, congratulations for a good deal. An important question is are you moving as a single, couple or family ? Generally the figure is quite good but try to surf the web for rentals and schools.
#Moe on Mar 20, 2014 :
To all the posts asking about making money in Dubai, life in Dubai is generally expensive specially with rentals which if you plan to stay in Sharja which is a bit cheaper than Dubai you will need to take care of transportation.

Generally if you are not going to stay in a shared accommodation monthly rental is never below 5000 AED per month (1360 US$), food expenses per person is around 1200 AED per month (325 US$), utility bills are roughly not less than 300 AED (80 US$), other expenses such as entertainment/clothes/transportation/mobile you can spend as much as you want but I don't think less than 1000 AED per person per month.

To make it simple to have your very minimal basic needs covered:
A single would need a minimum monthly salary of 7,500 AED (2050 US$)
A couple would need a minimum monthly salary of 9,800 AED (2670 US$)

For the high social level expats and people who want to live a decent life, if you are not paid triple the numbers above you are committing your worst mistake in your life.

I got job in Dubia and there offering me 33,100AED with all accommodations including house rent.
#some guy on Mar 16, 2014 :
To figure out if you can live in Dubai,use the currency converter function. You will be able to see what things cost in your home currency.
#Bell on Mar 14, 2014 :
Think twice before you make a move to Dubai. Its not a bed of roses. You work hard for your money, which is basically little or nothing. If you have a job in your own country and able to feed/clothe/entertainment and save for your family....stay where you are.

Hello to the Entire Public, Hello, my name is Janices wallocks from Housto texas.I came to this site to share the good works of the Native Doctor (Dr John).I never believed in love,Money spells or magic until i meant this powerful spell caster when i went to Africa in December last year on a business trip. He is really powerful and he can help you cast spells to bring back love one`s gone lost ,misbehaving,lover looking for some one to love you,Money riches,Winning lotto number, bringing back lost your lover, Bring back lost money and magic money spell for a good job,I`m now happy and living testimony because the man i had wanted to marry left me 2 weeks before our wedding day and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for years ..I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job . So when i meant this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him..At first, I was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 5days time when i returned to Texas, my boyfriend (now my husband,Dr Wallocks) called me himself and apologized that everything had been settled with his mum and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married and my sister who has been sick of cancer was healed..i didn`t believe it cos the spell caster only asked me for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do he did it for me... We are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid,and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better and we became very rich. In case any one needs the spell caster for some help, Email him on this email address:(prophetbaz@gmail.com) ......hope he helps you out. Hurry now and contact him now via email address:(prophetbaz@gmail.com) .. Thank you very much and i am very happy right now.. Janices wallocks

can anyone tell me what is the salary of bscs 16 year education salary in dubai.?
#sandeep on Jan 15, 2014 :
I have completed my bachelor degree in business studies. But i've no idea for what position i should apply in Dubai. Past work experience as an administrative assistant is not enough to compete with western people. May be vocational training in home country will be much more helpful to get work in there.I believe that food, accommodation and transportation is provided by employer for those who are getting less salary.

I am happy to be on this site. I lived in UAE 7 years and worked as part of Highway construction team. Wanted to let you know that if you ever travel within Dubai, from one city to the other, have a thermal bag to keep your food fresh and hot. visit www.thermabags.com. These are thermal bags available to carry pizza or food in Dubai.

Hello Guys.

I have this offer in Dubai just a few days ago. I will be working with a construction firm with a basic salary of 6,000 AED, as an office coordinator. Do you think this would be enough for me to live a descent life and save at least 40% percent of my salary? They will provide additional accommodation allowance of 1500 AED and a transportation allowance of 600 AED. Guys I need your honest and concrete point of view about this matter... Many thanks. BR. EMIL

I have more than 3yrs experience in Retail (Apparel) industry so how much my expectation salary on UAI, or how much monthly minimum expenses for a single on there please send me above my mail-id
#Dee on Sep 14, 2013 :
Its amazing the ignorance amongst the people commenting on this page. The prices are shown as it is to a global comparative scale. Plus there is an option to put another city as a comparative for costs. Yet you get people asking about if their offer is enough. Put two and two together. Housing in a one bed costs so much, so if you are earning below that, either you have to share one room with 3 others or get a better paying job. If you smoke 4 packs a day , factor that in. Its not rocket science, its basic common sense. Good luck to Dubai, if you get an influx of these workers.
#Jay on Sep 12, 2013 :
Hi.
I am going through the details, it all says about the salary, and whether can i live , but they have not mentioned the type of work they do and years of experience . Please make it very clear , what kind of job you do, what is your experience, what is offered. so that it is easier and more clear for the people to reply.

BTW ,i am work software, as Project manager, and have 15 years of IT experience, i am planning to move from INDIA to Dubai. Still it's in negotiation stage, what could be the decent salary,in comparison to INDIAN salary of 18 lakhs.[ $ 36,000 / year @ Rs50 conversion ]
thanks and regards
JAY

I disscus these days with a multinational company in Automotive Consultance. They are having a job in Dubai or around. The job is something like Coordinator-Filed Consulant in Automotive for a project of a very important automotive brand.


So, they asked me about the salary that I want. They offer me company car, laptop, mobile phone and business expenses. But they did not say anything about the montly payment. Can you give me an ideea about let say, a decent salary?


If I will be accepted, I will come alone to live there, at least for some months so I will need to rent a normal apartment, to spend money on house utilities (water, gas, electricity, internet etc.) and of couse to buy food. And normal, I want also to save some money.

So...please, if you can help me with some ideeas. I need to give them an rapid answer.

Thanks.
