Hi Friends,

Got a job offer as Fin Analyst with 20,000AED pm.

Trying to find out the latest current cost of living and unable to find anything recent. Will be really grateful if you all can help me in finding it out.

Want to know the following costs per month (2 adults + 1 child 2yrs):

1) House rental (atleast 2bedroom)(furnished or unfurnished)
2) Cost of furnishing if needed
3) Electricity/Water/Municipal Tax
4) Telephone/Mobile/Cable TV
5) Car rental or lease or loan repayment amt
6) Fuel cost
7) Food expenses - Grocery, Gas etc.
8) Children's education (kindergarten)

I will really appreciate if someone can help me be giving these details or provide me the links of sites where I can get concrete figures and not general views.

Also please mention any other issues/costs that I need to take into account to relocate to Dubai.

Thank you all in advance,

Have a great day,

    I got a permanent job offer in a bank in Dubai.
    Salary about 18000 AED per month. I am married too (don’t have children)

    I am an Indian, and have to sponsor my wife by myself and pay every expense by myself, like housing, food, travelling, electricity & water etc.
    I am a Muslim biologically but I really don’t follow any religion, My wife is a Non-Muslim girl.
    I don’t drink, nor do I have too many fascinations. A simple living guy.

    How much will it cost to me per month in AED, is it okay if I get 18K AED.

    Reply Appreciated
