Our recommended Top 4 priorities to tackle when moving to Dubai

  1. Immigration

There are more than 100 different kind of visas issued by the UAE Government, so to find out which visa you require and its eligibility criteria, we recommend you visit the Visa and Emirate ID section of The United Arab Emirates’ Government portal.

  1. Home

Whether you want to live in the a beachside location like in Jumeirah or in a quieter area near some international schools like the Arabian Ranches, it is worth spending some time on property websites such as justproperty.comwww.propertyfinder.ae and www.bayut.com to check what is available and at what cost.

  1. Schools

With 209 established private schools and about a dozen new institutions opening every year, choosing the right school for your children can easily become a stressful challenge.  The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) website provides parents and students with comprehensive information about the schooling system and schools in Dubai.  To help you selecting the best suitable school, you can also consult the schools inspection reports on the same portal.

  1. Healthcare

In 2018, the UAE was ranked one of the Top 10 most efficient healthcare systems in the world. In recent years, the Dubai Health Authority has implemented a new legislation under which all residents, expat and Emirati, as well as their dependents, must have medical insurance.  As such, employers are required to provide health insurance coverage for all their employees. Sponsors are required to get insurance cover for their resident dependents.  If you require more information, please check the FAQs section on the Insurance System for Advancing Healthcare in Dubai (ISAHD) portal.

Frequently Asked Questions about Moving to Dubai

What Can I Do With The Things I Can’t Take To Dubai?

It is important to ensure that you are in compliance with Dubai’s regulations, so we invite you to read the FIDI Customs Guide for the United Arab Emirates, which is a very comprehensive summary.

And if you can’t find a home for the items that you can’t take with you to Dubai, Robinsons offers first-class, secure storage facilities.

How Long Will It Take To Ship My Possessions?

For a Full Container Load, we allow a door-to-door transit time of 5 – 7 weeks.

A Shared Container Shipment (Groupage) will be cheaper, but take longer. They usually take 9 – 11 weeks door-to-door.

All moves to Dubai are overseen by our expert International Removals team.
