COST OF LIVING IN DUBAI FOR A FAMILY OF 3

Posted in Dubai forum

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,

Deep

    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

    Plz dont give any one or any company ur original certificate if you want you can confime with united arab emirates ambassy or consulate in mumby, ask them original certificate require for get visa.
    If you wants you can do urself your own certificate attestion n send them colour copy front n back page you will get all attestion back of original certificate
    My wife was got vis on 2005 from dubai media city free zone visat that time they didn't ask any certificate in immigration office
    1-Ministory of education,eptarment of sec.& higher education
    2-Ministory of external affairs
    3-United arab emirate ambassy or consulate
    Current rule i have no idea but u can ask to ur freinds n relatives in dubai or check with uae consulate or ambassy in india delhi mumby search in google.com

    First your employeer will get entery permit a4 size visa paper from dubai free zone immigrationfrom to enter in uae or dubai then you have to go for medical test they will check you hiv blood test n chest x-ray then if u passed medical then they will process for you visa stamp in your passport i dont know why they are asking you original certificate or you can check goole free zone immigration office in dubai which free zone visa are u getting? chk according to that in google.com
    Best of Luck

    Dont think too much just grab as soon as possible if u r getting free zone visa then u r the lucky person coz even if u get stamp visa in ur passport n u will get new job offer you can change your job next day of your stamping visa without any ban on ur visa coz free zone visa has different labour lows n rules this visa has freedom. One more thing compare india from dubai or uae very easy to jump any europian country or usa,uk,australia,canada,newziland etc.c
    Thx

    Hi,
    I am Shayan. A 36 years old Pakistani. I live and work here as Travel Consultant for a travel and tourism group. I am not as high qualified as you but thanks goodness.
    With your qualification, if you are enough lucky you can get a good job but you need to make a visit here and hunt for a job for a month or two.
    I myself got a job in the same way. I was on the way home and made a visit here. Then I searched for a job and finally after two months of hard work, i got the present job.

    Best of luck.

    You need to make a visit here.
