Be careful with language such as "package includes", as that usually means this benefits are paid as cash allowances in your total package. What you've written is a bit ambiguous, as you say "and $x a month".

If you have actual accommodation, transport and meals provided - $USD 2,500 p/m is do-able, but I wouldn't accept less than $USD 3,000 even with all that provided.

If it's not physically provided and these are cash allowances in your pay, I'd say a minimum of $USD 4,000 p/m is more realistic.

Notwithstanding Fat Bhoy's comments, to be offered a sum of 1400 to 2400 seems an exceptionally large spread.

Get every item listed out.
What is in the figure listed, and what is provided on top of that.
Ask what the accommodation is, where it is, and who/how many you are sharing with.
What are the meals? Restaurant meals only? This is a big no if it is McDonalds etc, as your internal organs will fail in three months.

You left out a some important details like: marital status, no. of kids, age of said kids. Without that information, no one can give you an appropriate reply. For instance, the above package is fine if you are a bachelor, or even a couple without kids.

p.s: what does the - - - mean in your post ...

Sorry. Here are the details.

I am married with a 10 months old kid.

My wife is working currently but if i happen to move to Dubai she will not be working.

---- was part of the offer which i assume to be NIL.

Let me know if you need any other info.

Also if this seems to be less, then what would be an ideal qoute?

What other components should i ask for.? Please suggest.

Thanks,

In that case, sounds fine. The 5k for housing wouldn't get you a 1 bed in a decent area. But if you look at it as a total amount you get, then the extra on the housing can be covered, without hurting you too hard financially.

I would check with them regarding the tickets. Annual air fare is provided pretty much everywhere and should be included for you and the family (you might have to negotiate the family part). Schooling doesn't factor in until later on, so I wouldn't bring it up.

Is it an IT position? When is your skype interview? Grade 07 is about 15K Dirhams including transport and accommodation... that is what I have heard.
