I’m considering a job offer in Dubai for an engineering role. The offer is 30,000 Dirhams per month. I currently live in the uk (British citizen) with my American wife and 4 months old daughter. I won’t have any expenses in the uk once I move to Dubai as I’ll be renting our house covering the mortgage. My questions are:
1. Is the salary offered enough for a small family and will we be able to start saving some money every month? we don’t live a lavish lifestyle.
2. Can my (American) wife and British daughter just move to Dubai with me for my job? Or what would be most convenient immigration path for them?
Thanks a lot for any advice.

Key questions for me are. Was your wife working back in the UK and are you loosing out on that? Also, what salary (approx) were you on in the UK as that should enable an easier comparison.
All the best
