single female need to know about housing/living expenses

  • i am in the negotiation stage of my working contract - they are offering 1 month free rent plus a moving bonus - but only 10% on what i currently earn - which according to my research on housing leaves me short to even pay the rent for a year.
    any advise would be highly appreciated - trying to make an educated decision about moving.......

  • rent

    Rental in Dubai is very expensive, min 85k per year for a 1 bed apt, plus u will need to furnish it. you will definately need a car as the public transport isnt very good at mo. there is a metro rail in constuction but is way off completion.

    you will need a good salary to come over here and you should negotiate flight and medical.

    well. dubai has more to do interms of thing to do or entertainment.also laws are more lax, but it is a muslim country, guess both are!

    depends also again what industry ur working in and scope of same...

  • not for less than 10000 AED/month

    I am making considerably more than the 6000-10000/month that many of these discussions are surrounding - in Dubai rent alone will start at 66,000 per annum, food is very inexpensive, and as a single I wouldn't come here for less than 10,000 a month . . . thats only the USD equiv. of $32,608 per annum. Given the fact that there is no tax here it is the US equiv of $41,086, but that kind of money doesn't go far here . . . unless you want to room with many others in a crowded flat, consider what you are likely to earn, what you are likely to save, what you are likely to spend . . .
