Hi .. Just wanted to clarify a point here >
Your partner will definately not be able to sponsor you .. thats only for the
wife / husband & you have to show all passport's etc .. so no way of getting around that .. the other point is yes Brits can come into Dubai on a Visit Visa but it has to be renewed every 30 days .......... not 6 mths

so basically you would have to take a short flight to Doha / Bahrain etc & you can come back into Dubai the same day or other option is to drive to Oman / Hatta & get your passport stamped at any of these borders .. this would be only until you get a Resident Visa

Good luck !
Very wrong.

1. It is illegal for unmarried couple of cohabit and it is only possible to sponsor a spouse. Woman can sponsor a husband but there are many restrictions.

2. A visit visa is not valid for 6 months! They usually state 30 days.

Apologies, but I think you didn't quote the other poster properly so it looked as if it was your comments.

Your partner needs to find a job here and be sponsored by someone other than you. It's possible that you could hire him to be your maid, or something like that. I'm not joking, and I would want to write more or further the topic, but I, too, am afraid of trolls and the like. Most things in this respect are on the down low, though unofficially, nobody cares.

You canot hire a male maid here; garden boy possibly, but not from a 'Western' country. A single man cannot sponsor a maid.

Default Gay working in Saudi Arabia

Hello all,
I decided to post to this thread as it is related to my query and haven't found anything more specific.
I am a partnered gay male currently working in Saudi Arabia and my partner is not here. I am here on a 30 day assignment.
I am making some good contacts.
Is there any chance I could bring my partner here should I be invited back? Would it be safe, the laws here are very strict.
But I do here the expats who live in the compounds are pretty much left to themselves, and we tend to live a social life with a very mixed (straight and gay) social scene.
At first I thought such a thought would be impossible, but having talked to some people about the compounds, without opening up about the details about my personal life, I began to think maybe it could work out (assuming I can convince my partner to come!).
Is Saudi Arabia out of the question for a gay couple (who don't mind being discreet of course)? Is Bahrain a more workable option? Sounds like Dubai is feasible, given care is taken to be very discreet.. would Bahrain be like Dubai? How would Saudi compare?
The other option that comes to mind is setting up a home in Cyprus and commuting weekly.
Thanks in advance for your input
