Hi,

I am new to this forum and this is my first post. While I have been visiting Dubai for a long time, never for more than a week per visit. because of some exhibition, I am moving there for at least six months and we'll see after that.

I needed some information and while I am sure most people have similar repeating questions, I apologize for repetition. I could not find a FAQ so here we go:

1. I would be at Global Village, are there good apts for share / or independent rent near that area?


2. I need display glass cases. where do I get one fast? there maybe used ones or others making new ones.


3. I need a sim card. what mobile company gives me good service in that area? I need it to function within dubai, nothing fancy. no international calls. I've skype for that. no internet, etc. Just calls and text. A plan is better or pay as you go?


4. I need wireless internet. what do you recommend? Can anyone get that internet stick or residence only?


5. is there a metro/bus map/schedule in Dubai?


6. can I open a bank account with a temporary work visa?


7. any other general notes, hints, pointers, about life/shopping/living/working in dubai is sorely needed.

you can also contact me personally via email at gmail and it is [email protected]

thanks a lot! sorry for the long post. I need much information.

Hi javid

Welcome to Dubai and welcome to the forum!
P.S - I take it that you will be displaying or selling Afghani products at Global village, this season - what products will you have?

Hi Steve,

Thank you very much for replying. I knew I was not the only one. I will look at the archives for this. Not sure if display cases would be there but one never knows.

Yes, I will have Afghan made products. They consist of leather, felt, art work, glassware, jewelery [precious and semi-precious], silk, woodwork, souvenirs such as snow globes, post cards, posters, fabric place matts, napkins, jaali wood screens, metal jewelry carved boxes, handbags, etc. we are bringing a sample of everything Afghanistan makes.

thanks for your help!
