In August, we published a blog post about five reasons to move to Dubai. We realized those weren’t enough – we’ve come up with five more.
In case you weren’t convinced by the first blog post, read on to discover five more reasons to move to the vibrant, modern-yet-steeped-in-tradition country of Dubai.
Reason 1: The Economy
Dubai’s economy has experienced steady growth that might not dazzle, but it is sustainable. The country’s leadership has chosen to diversify so Dubai isn’t so reliant upon oil.
This economic growth means there are jobs for highly qualified, trained professionals who can move Dubai’s economy further forward. And as we mentioned in the last blog post, you won’t pay taxes on your earnings.
Reason 2: Low Crime
Dubai ranks as one of the safest cities in the world. Its crime rate is the envy of other major cities thanks to strictly enforced laws and a well-respected police force.
Women can feel safe walking the streets at night – how many other cities in North America and around the world does that statement apply to?
Reason 3: A Tightknit Expatriate Community
Dubai attracts many workers from around the world (including from Canada). Because everyone is far from home and most expatriates don’t speak Arabic, a tightknit community has developed.
The expatriate community frequently runs events for newcomers and old timers alike, giving people a chance to get to know each other. It makes being in a new place (even one as nice as Dubai) less lonely.
Reason 4: Excellent Healthcare
Many people still operate under the (erroneous) assumption that the Middle East is backwards and old-fashioned. “I wouldn’t want to get sick there,” you’ll hear. “I wouldn’t trust the doctors or hospitals.”
That’s not true in Dubai. Thanks to government investment, highly trained doctors and nurses treat patients in state-of-the-art facilities. Many employers offer to pay for private health insurance so their employees get the best care.
Reason 5: High Quality Education for School-Aged Children
If you’ve got a family and your children are old enough to be in school, one of the biggest concerns about moving is their education. “How good are the schools?” parents fret. “Will our children be able to keep up with their peers when they come home?”
That’s not a worry you’ll have in Dubai. There are British and American-run private schools for international students that provide excellent education, no matter what class your child is in. As with health insurance, many employers will pay for your children’s education in order to attract the best employees.
