Job search in Dubai

Postby shawarma » 05 Jul 2009, 19:04

Hello ruskin and welcome to the Dubai job forums. As this is a public forum, anyone is welcome to answer your question :).

A Dubai tourist visa is good for 30 days and renewable once for another 30 days without leaving the UAE (go to the immigration department).
A Dubai visit visa is good for 30 or 90 days if you can find a sponsor. Not renewable except maybe if you're from the free visa on arrival countries (but you can only get a 30 day visit visa then).

Some other information to help you with your Dubai job search:

Jobs in Dubai - general information about working in Dubai and the UAE
Dubai salaries - a rough guide
Cost of living in Dubai - approximate guide to expenses
Dubai recruitment - agents and companies
Dubai online job search - some helpful websites (and not so helpful)

Depends. A visit visa is not always renewable. A tourist visa is. See my first post for more details :).
