Work in Dubai

Dubai is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world. In the past few years, the city has been aggressive in its development not only on its structures but also on its investment. Fueled by billion dollar investments not just in oil but in other industries as well, it has become the business and even the entertainment hub in the Middle East. Tourists flock Dubai to marvel at its feats of the construction, shop, play golf and even ski in the snow.

Complementing the aggressive development in Dubai is also the increasing demand of workers in various industries. Local workforce alone cannot handle the demand so local companies in Dubai are constantly searching for qualified employees who could support them with their skills.

Employment Agency and Direct Hiring

Foreign workers can directly contact a company in Dubai for the possibility of employment. Many foreigners use this option when they are already in Dubai on tourist Visa. Their tourist Visa will allow them to stay in the country for 30 days and they can convert their status to work Visa if they can find employment.

The employer will process the work Visa in behalf of the foreigner. To activate the work Visa, the newly hired employee should get out of the country and re-enter.

Foreigners can also seek employment with the aid of employment agency. The process is also the same as the employer with the aid of the employment agency will have to process the work Visa in behalf of the newly hired employee.

In Demand Skills in Dubai

Since Dubai is constantly on development, there is a demand for skilled workers related to the construction industry. Engineers and architects can easily find employment in this city. Also in demand are health-industry workers such as nurses and doctors. This doesn’t mean there is no demand in other industries. In fact, various jobs in different industries are open in Dubai.


While Dubai is an open city, there are some restrictions everyone should remember. Among them is that Dubai follows the laws dictated by Islam. The city is not as strict compared to other countries in UAE but it it’s important to remember some of these laws to avoid getting in trouble with government authority.
