Looking forward to your new life in the UAE? Follow the checklists to becoming a legal resident in the UAE and you will feel right at home in no time at all.
Your employer may arrange this for you, but if not there are plenty of budget-friendly hotel apartments here.
When you land you may be asked this at immigration, and you'll also need to let the taxi driver know!
Your employer may organise this for you, but if not there are plenty of car rental agencies or taxi services. Once you have your residence visa, you can buy a vehicle.
You will need standard passport photos for visa applications, the medical test, driving licence... the list goes on!
It is also useful to redirect your mail to someone you trust for a few months after you leave. You'll have to pay, but it will allow you to catch correspondence from anyone you've forgotten to inform.
Keep these within easy reach, and do not pack them in your shipping container!
