Hi all, what is the law regarding both husband and wife working. Are they both entitled to the allowances i.e housing, education, flights etc or is only one person entitled to it?

Also does it matter who sponsors the visa?

If both are in different companies, under different Visa, both are entitled for all the allowance.

What if my wife is under my sponsorship through my company and she works in a different company, would she still be able to get the allowances?

I think she wont get HRA as she is on your visa, but it depends on company to company.

Default Opinion about Salary Package

Hello fellow expats,

I have about 15 years of experience and was offered a role as engineering manager from a reputable international conglomerate.

In brief, the salary package is around 49k AED/month, which includes car and housing allowance. In addition, I am entitled to benefits such as medical insurance, annual flight tickets for myself and dependents, kids tuition fees reimbursement (40k to 70k AED per child depending on age).

Is this a reasonable salary package?

Thank you all in advance for your feedback.

Thank you for your reply Sunder. I have heard from someone else that with my experience, up to 80k/month for the role is possible; but I am not sure this is realistic figure to aim for counteroffer.

Hi,

If you add the benefits I think you will be close to that number. I do not know your job profile or field but I wonder if you will get such a huge jump while negotiating.

Hi, Like ecg2019 above, I have been offered the same 49k AED/mo. No mention of housing and car. So I'm guessing it is included in the 49K (we will have to ask that question). But with annual allowances for hazards/Inconveniences, car maintenance, house & furnishings, Travel& Events, and end of year bonus to be paid quarterly adding up to about USD$38k. I think that this is a good offer so I what I want to know is....what is life like in Dubai? Is it really that restrictive? We are in our early 50s. Wants to live a quiet, comfortable life.
