Hi everyone,

I'm from South Africa and currently looking at going to Fujairah in the U.A.E.

The reason for going there would be a potential job, but even though nothing is definite as of now I'd still like to get some background info.

I will be going there with my fiance, which will change if an offer came through along with my cat and dog (will never leave them behind).

I'm looking at a guide for cost of living under the following points:
Housing /year (for us all, and with a garden)
Food for two + pets /month
Electricity+Water /month
Internet /month
TV /month (I'm an avid football supporter and my soon to be wife loves movies)
Public Transport /month
Renting/buying a car

Then I'm also looking at issues around the following:
Electronic Goodies (TV/Stereo/Washing Machine etc. / where and how expensive)
My wife won't work at first - can this be problematic?
Things to do in Fujairah?
How is Fujairah? I've read a lot about it and it does seem nice. But first hand experience will count a lot.

Any insight will be hugely appreciated!

Carl

I have just seen this and am copying it to the Dubai/UAE forum as that's the best place to get info about anywhere in the UAE.


Read the sticky thread at the top of the page as a lot of that info will apply to Fujeirah too. It's a rather sleepy place with not much to do, but that may suit some people. Rents are generally much cheaper than in Dubai.

Fujeirah is beautiful but it's small compared to Dubai. Depending on what type of jobs she can do, I believe it's not easy to find a good one out of Dubai. Dubai is more open minded then the other Emirates. Rent an everything else should be cheaper. You'll love it there and I wish you good luck.
