rsinner, thank you for the detailed reply.
I am now contemplating on whether I am making the right decision after reading your reply.

  • cheaper to live in (Europe is cheaper in many ways, but living in UAE is more convenient and CHEAP if you want cheap living, and EXPENSIVE if you want to go out),
  • more culture and things to do,
  • more travelling opportunities.

DOnt forget that it is (relatively) easier to move to UAE from Europe, but not the other way round.
I would love to add the European weather also to the list. Summers are like you are in front of a Boiler or furnace !!!

Adding to the above, chances of getting a European passport after 5-10 yrs( Just shot in the dark).

Hi BedouGirl,

You hit right on spot and that too very hard. All salesman and BDM must have a UAE DL. Just got one and its really a pain. Was lucky to get in the 2nd attempt. Phew !!!

Thanks,
Sunder.
