How do you intend coming to the UAE if you are not employed? What is your profession? Coming over here to look for a job is not really a good idea. It is best to have one over here before coming.

I think it's rather irresponsible to tag your discussion with the words "help" in repeated fashion. I looked in to see if it was a situation that I might be able to lend a hand, but in reality, you are just wasting my time (and others). Remember the guy who cried "wolf?"

indigora all im asking is for advice from expats that are already in UAE who have been through the mill whereas im still learning, you wasted your own time by replying to the thread when you saw you could not lend a hand or constructive ADVICE:confused2:! bubbles i have a degree in business i graduated 2 yrs ago. thanks mr sharaf i think its a risk im willing to take as you say no pain no game :)

Good. A degree will make it easier for you. I still maintain that having an offer beforehand will be the best bet, but If you can support yourself for a few months over here, I don't see why not.

Maybe asking some more specific questions will get you a better response? Specific questions we can surely help with. :)

thanks bubbles. i have been looking on the web for jobs in the UAE but then again i have found out that most of them are scams and want payment before you can put your cv on their database. i am trying my best to find employment from south africa then atleast i know my employer would pay for accomodation visas etc. im staying positive that i would get a job once that side.

Hi Edridge

Have you tried the big recruitment websites covering the Middle East i.e. Bayt.com, Naukri Gulf, Monster Gulf, Gulf Talent etc? Any employers wanting to advertise jobs with them have to subscribe which should weed out the scammers. You can also post your CV on these websites for free.

In terms of recruitment agencies - without knowing exactly what kind of job you're looking for it's hard to make recommendations, but Hays, Randstad, Charterhouse, IQ Selection, and Kershaw Leonard are all reputable and have websites that can be found by searching via Google.

Good luck!

ok mate, you are going to have to come here on a visit visa. Lasts 30 days, at that point you either leave or do a visa run. In that 30 days you will need to find a job that will sponsor you so you can become a resident.Thats your biggest problem to deal with first. The rest will drop on you like a sack of bricks. heheh. good luck dude
