Over the past few months I have had an increasing number of clients who have consulted with me on their desire to work overseas especially in Dubai. The attraction is increasing and why not, the opportunity on my levels would be rewarding, however long you wish to reside and work in Dubai. Expatriates are enjoying a totally new lifestyle with a wide range of career opportunities with tax-free and well paying salaries. Other perks may include your accommodation, healthcare and transport costs all paid for by your employer. From a career development perspective, working overseas will provide you with the experience of a broader market and as a result you will be highly regarded in the job market upon your return to Australia. To work in Dubai you will need a work permit and a residency visa, which your employer will arrange once you have managed to secure the position.


According to the latest figures from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, some 900,000 Australians are living and working overseas at any given time and this number is only going to increase. The UK still remains one of the most popular destinations with Dubai’s popularity increasing exponentially.
