Hi,
Plenty of mechanics from around the world work here.
What special talent do you have? - as without one, you will be competing against very low paid mechanics from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh etc.
In fact, some of the best roadside repairs i have seen have been in places like India, Thailand etc. - where very talented and resourceful people can work miracles on broken car parts to fix them and get you going again!
Cheers
Steve

Have you ever visited Dubai or worked in this part of the world before?

If you do some research, you will see that this is a very regulated country and you need to get a work visa to live and work here.
Companies sponsor you to get a visa - but you then have to work for them on a contract (normally two years minimum).
If you leave a company before your contract is over, then you often need to pay back visa fees and you need a no objrction letter to get a new visa for a new job.
If you dont leave a company properly, they can make it very difficult for you to stay living and working here.
You cannot just chop and change jobs, like you can in Europe.
Your strategy mentioned in your post is not likely to work here.
Cheers
Steve

Some of the big franchise dealers employ western mechanics. I know AGMC (BMW) employ some South Africans (whites - that is relevant here unfortunately :( ) but generally it will be a very lowly paid job. Unless you have a lot of experience with a high profile car maker your chances of making enough to match your living standard at home is pretty slim.
