Factors to consider for relocation?
Already got a job in Dubai or yet to find one
This is the first and foremost point you must consider. If you have already gotten a job then good enough but if not, then moving to Dubai will be a costly affair.
Living in Dubai
This is the most important point you should keep in mind. If you are shifting in Dubai all by yourself then you will not have to invest much other than a place to stay, getting a car etc. Bu if you are moving with your family, then you have to start with how many bedrooms depending on family size, if you have children then schooling expenses, other expenses for utilities , daily expenses, transportation expenses, maid / driver allowance etc.
Your accommodation in Dubai
The next factor to consider before relocation to Dubai is the living costs, which includes food, clothing, house rent, and education. For a single person, living costs may not be a lot specially as they have a chance of living in studio flats which have less costs. But if you are moving with your family then more the number of bedrooms, the more will be their rent. Moreover it also depends on the type of living standards you want. If you want to live a posh lifestyle then getting an apartment at Downtown, Marina or Palm is a good idea, though the rents are very high in there. But if you want to live a decent lifestyle yet with a reasonable rent, then you should prefer looking for properties in Dubai Sports City, Barsha, JLT etc. Again if you choose to live in villas, the most expensive and sought after communities are Arabian ranches, Palm Jumeirah, Jumeirah Golf Estates while you will also find reasonable ones in Springs, Jumeirah Village Circle, Dubai Silicon Oasis etc.
Education in Dubai
Education is another big factor that you must think about. School fees vary depending on the curriculum and is high, hence this needs to be factored in depending on whether your employer provides an allowance for this or you will have to pay for this separately. Also Universities in Dubai are and you must have the complete details of the fees that your child wants to enroll in.
Maintaining a lifestyle in Dubai
You will never regret at your decision of relocation to Dubai as Dubai as a very different lifestyle. You will come across people of every nationality and race. Dubai is a combination of everything, such as malls for shopping or hanging out with friends, cinemas for entertainment, parks for leisure time and restaurants providing you with a great variety of cuisine including the place you belong to so you will never feel homesick in the matter of food.
Relocation to Dubai might take up a little effort in getting a job, searching for the right place to live and best institute to educate in, but once you are there, you will know that it was worth all the efforts.
