Pinoy style : How to visit Dubai then apply for a job

Posted by Admin on March 5, 2007

Base on my personal experience some of the following are few tips you have to read and take note when planning to visit and find a job in Dubai.

Required Documents
Transcript of Records, Diploma and PRC Certificate if any, are the usual documents you need to secure when going to Dubai.

Procedure to process the documents:

Diploma and TOR – must be certified as true copy by your school registrar, authenticated by your regional CHED office, Malacanang, Department of Foreign Affairs and UAE embassy. You have to personally secure the authentication except in UAE embassy which you have to send via Fedex with enclosed managers check of Peso 1,400.

PRC Certificate – must be authenticated by PRC, Malacanang, DFA and UAE embassy. (The same procedure for Diploma and TOR) These documents are needed in order to secure working visa in UAE, but it is not necessary to bring together with you in your flight to Dubai as this are not requirement in applying for a job. Yet not necessary but it is advisable to bring it with you as it will be needed when you are hired immediately and the processing alone in the Philippines will approximately 5 weeks.

While the processing of the authentication of your documents is under development, get ideas about UAE in websites that are available in the internet.

Ideal timing
Summer in the Middle East starts mid March and ends late October, temperature is rising up to 45 degrees so this is not the ideal time in walking on Dubai streets to apply for a job. Also at this season, managers of companies are normally out on vacation.

Avoid also the month of Ramadan as the office timings are shorten to 5 hours.

Ideal timing to visit UAE is from October to March as the whether is fine and there are lot of festivals thus requiring more jobs.

Exchange Rate
Money in UAE is called Dirhams (AED, Dhs), This is approximately equivalent to 13 pesos in Philippine money and fixed to 3.68 per 1 US Dollars.

How much visa and air fare costs?
Visas are pre-arranged, it means you have to apply for it while in the Philippines. If you have friends that were already in the UAE, they can help you to to get a visa.

Typically Filipinos are entering the UAE ports by using tourist visa, tourist visa holders are not allowed to work in the UAE, but they are allowing visitors to apply for a job. This type of visa including air ticket for one way is Dhs 2,700 – 3,000. Please note that you have to pay at this range only, otherwise it’s too much. (Airline ticketing agencies will issue back and forth tickets to tourist visa holders as Dubai authorities are assuming that you are returning back, this is dummy ticket only, you don’t have to pay for it.

Above rate is the regular rate that Dubai based agents are charging, you can check the standard rates here and here for more detailed information.

Visa expiry
Tourist visa holders are allowed to stay in the UAE for 60 days. The visa is valid 30 days from the date of issue. If it is not utilized in the validity period you need to apply for new one. The 60 days count will start from the date you set foot on UAE land.

This means that you have 60 days for job hunting. If you did not find job in 60 days, it is nessesary to leave the county for a visa change. Usually the exit point is in Kish or Qeshem islands in Iran. There is no limit for visa change, you can do it untill you got a job.

Kish and Qeshem visa change
Kish and Qeshm islands are 45 minutes from Dubai via chartered flight, the whole package of visa change ranges from Dhs 1,350 to 1,600 including the visa, return ticket, one day hotel accommodation, and breakfast meal. Usual staying period in these islands while waiting for the new visa is 2-3 days, you are lucky if you can go back to Dubai at the same day of your departure.

Above rate is the regular rate that Dubai based agents are charging, you can check the standard rates here and here for more detailed information.

Once you got your new visa and landed to Dubai, you have another 60 days to find a job.

Job hunting
In Dubai the job competition is tough, but once you got a job it is rewarding. Our main competitors here are our Kababayans also and the Indians which sometimes being favored because of their cheaper salary rates.

Job market in Dubai is awesome, everyday you can read in newspaper ads and internet postings whatever job you are looking for. However as I’ve said the competition is high. One good way is to look for vacancies suitable to your experience and apply as many as you can in one day so the possibility of being called in an interview will increase. Take note that every minute of your stay have cost so don’t consume a day without releasing a single CV in your hand. Don’t concentrate on few job openings; make a target of at least ten applications in one day.

There are some times of discouragements and depressions but you should not stop dreaming because of the money and time you invested.

How much pocket money needed.
To give you an idea of the cost of living in Dubai:

Bed space rent – Dhs 500 – 750 (4-8 persons sharing in one room)
Water and electricity – Dhs 60 – 100
Food – Dhs 250 per month will be fine
Personal things – Dhs 50 is enough
Bus fare – Dhs 1.50 minimum fare

You also have to allocate extra amount on internet rent, Fax, printing and mobile SIM card plus load as these are necessary when applying for a job.

Base on my experience Dhs 2,000 – 2,500 will be sufficient for two months.

For more informations read the Dubai Handbook and Dubai Guide.

These informations are only based on my personal experience so it will be better if you will also ask your friends who are already in Dubai on some tips how to successfully enter in Dubai and eventually land a job here.

    Just read it. Indians are not cheap and mind you India is an economic giant. ie if you have read papers recently. 2nd.. Indians are fluent in English language, educated in all streams and obviously competition to you. Whichever streams you take they are there, whether be it Medical, Engineering and of course IT. So cut off the “Cheap” talk and get down to ground realities. There is competition all over the world. If you are ready to work hard like Indians then you shall get the job. Hope its clear to all who come here looking for a job.

Indians are non-fluent in English language, non-educated in all streams and obviously non-competitive to you. Whichever streams you take they are there, whether be it Medical, Engineering and of course IT. So go on the “Cheap” talk and get up to ground realities. There is competition all over the world. Indian people as far as I know are faking their documents, that’s TRUE, PLEASE BE CAREFULE WITH THIS PEOPLE

    This will surely help our Kababayans who would like to work here in Dubai. Even though I was directly hired by my company, I still have to acquire and submit all the requirements for the visa. What I did was to let DHL do it for me, instead of going to Malacanang, DFA and UAE embassy. There are some branches that does it for you, of course there is a small fee for the service. No time kasi eh, too much work to do in my former company.

    With regards to Black’s reply, I beg to disagree with him/her. Based on my experience with the Indians here in Dubai, they are not as HARD working nor have the proper work ethics (not including the physical hygiene part yet) like Filipinos. Thus most companies prefer hiring other expats like Russians, British, Australians and Filipinos. That is the reason why they lower their asking salary rate. No offense Black, but I already interviewed a lot of Indians with good applications/CV (for IT Administrator) and when asked about what they input there, I can say its all crap and phony…

    Economic Giant? You have to, because India has the second biggest population in the world. But being an economic doesn’t mean you ahve to be rude. Even Readers Digest wrote an article about Mumbai as the rudest city in the world…

    Okay okay, enough has been said.

    To you my Kababayan, living and working here in Dubai is really rewarding. You just have to take the risk and give your best.

      Mr Pinoy Hitman,

      im planing to go there too..what is best? to get through an agency or grab some tourist visa and go job haunting..please help…thanks

  5. charming said

    Hi Pinoy Hitman. Please give me some advice on how you’ve landed a job in Dubai with direct employer. I’m really interested to work there to save for my brother’s aortic valve replacement. Five of my co-workers went there thru visit visa but as much as possible I don’t want to do the same because of worries and risks. I’ve already submitted resumes thru jobstreet/jobsdb for Dubai and Bahrain job openings but haven’t received feedback yet from the agencies. I also buy Manila Bulletin every Sunday hoping to find job vacancies in Dubai or even in Qatar but haven’t been lucky yet. Thanks in advance.

    i just inquired about a tourist/visit visa for Dubai. i reside in Davao City and 1 agency along magallanes street told me that it would cost me about 65,000 pesos to be able to go to Dubai. given the computation above i could say its a bit much but i am truly willing to take the risk. i have a family, my hubby & i have been married for seven years now but the maximum time that we really been with each other is 8mos. he’s been working in Manila, Taiwan, etc… to provide us with our needs. I am a registered nurse, batch 2006 grad & a Dec. board passer (di nasali sa scandal…thank God). i have few friends who went there & are now successful, i was inspired by their stories & yours too. well, i really wanna go in Dubai to work, invite my husband & if God’s will get my children too. I am only 25, a young mom but optimistic & strong willed. my questions are; 1.) is there really a qualifying exam there in Dubai for nurses? 2.) are they hiring fresh grad without experience? 3.) is there any particular agency there in Dubai like POEA or DOLE who posts job hirings?
    i beg you all there, pls reply….. I’d gladly appreciate it!

    • apad said

      you can go to POEA, they have posted availble jobs there….especially nurses

    • lucky jesper said

      Kabayan, taga davao ka so lets talk visaya. See above message of charming. Palagi ka bile ng sunday issue ng Manila bulletin. Minsan meron hiring na wala kang babayaran kahit peso-all to be shouldered by employer. Yon ang abangan mo. hwag kang mag apply sa may placement fee. luma na style yon. karamihan sa may placement fee ay mababa ang sahod. Napaka swerte mo, meron kana halos lahat. kulang lang ay experiences. ito secreto, ato lang ni: tungod kay 21 kapa graduate pwede ka maka kuha ng pabor from kaibigan dyan sa tabi tabi na hospital kahit maliit na hospital, may computer ka,or internet cafe’ pahimo ka ng a siRtipikit, dile na na importanti sa imo employer kung tinood, kay naa man mo ojt. parang supporting papers lang na pa pirmahan mo kaibigan mo-diskarte kriminal mona…alam mo ba kaibigan ko sumasahod ng 5000 us dollar peru elementary graduate lang. lahat ng papel niya gawa sa tabi tabi-hinahanap lang ang papel uras na malaki ang problema sa trabaho. palagay ko di mangyari yan kung masipag ka at mapagmasid sa dapat gawin.

      after ma prepare mo lahat documento kasama sirtipikit sa tabitbi, siguruhin mo hindi peke ang agency punta ka ngayon sa website sa poea list of agencies. doon makita mo ang records nila kung meron silang kalukuhan. pag wala pwede kana susugod. peru kailangan meron ka bala(pera-15t pesos for one week mag stay ka sa OFW hotel mas mura) sa manila. mag punta ka lang doon for interview schedule as per indicated sa Manila bulletin. after that, pag pumasa ka, agad agad medical ka na. Ensure lang na ang naka indicate sa Manila bulletin ay employer interview. kasi meron sila preliminary interview minsan. hwag ka na kakagat dyan. luma na na style yan. Kinahanglan employer interview para sulit ang punta mo sa maynila. at makastandby kalang for 1 day interview, 2 days for medical, and 3 days waiting for medical result. total 6 days. afetr which pwede kana babalik sa Davao, mag hintay ka ng visa-usually 2 to 6 weeks. minsan meron sila ready visa. pag ready visa mas maganda. dalawang linggo lang maka alis kana. Ting nan mo rin sa hiring sa manila bulletin yong meron ready visa-mas maganda. Ang gasto sa maynila ito: ticket mo roundtrip aeroplano 6000 pesos -mas mura kung advance booking ang return kailangan hindi fixed date. depende sa Medical result mo. mas maganda mag pacheck kana sa provincsya, katulad ng cholesterol, blood pressure etc. para hindi ka magtagal sa manila. e-correct muna ang katawan mo dyan sa davao bago ka punta sa manila.

      Additional document kailangan meron ka is passport pwede mo kunin dyan in advance sa davao. Birth certificate to be authenticated by NSO, Diploma and transcript to be authenticated by malacanang(regional office of DECS-department of education). Hwag ka mag punta sa manila na wala ito. lalo kalang mag tagal dahil dito. ang birth cerificate is one week or one month pag authenticate… check your local NSO office.

    • lucky jesper said

      napaka exciting ang mag abroad. sa simula lang ang mahirap. dyan palang sa manila. magsimula na ang challenge. kailangan may bala ka bago ka punta. Una ay bili ka ng mapa dyan sa book store. E-familiar mo sarili mo sa mapa from airport or Pier kung mag barko ka. Tapos yong address ng agency. E-familiar mo ang route. Hwag ka basta basta mag travel sa gabi. even sa araw. kilatisin mo ang driver mas maganda kung medyo maliit o matanda. Yong taxi piliin mo rin yong may pangalan katulad ng mga yellow or Green colour is more reliable kay sa ordinary white na kung saan saan galing ang mag yon. Ang pera mo ihiwalay mo sa medyas ilagay or pante ang iba. hwag mag suot ng alahas at mamahalin na bagay. ang bag yong simply lang kung pwede plastic bag lang. hwag pahalata sa driver na baguhan ka lang. be smart always.

    Dear Anna,

    If you are very willing, you can survive in Dubai and eventually land in a job, but let me remind you that the word should be..very very very willing. Remove all the hesitations belive in your self. There are so many kabayans here that are now succesfull.

    Here are the answers to your questions:

    1.) According to my nurse friend, yap there is an exam but not qualifying, it means that you can still work even not passed the exam, or simply not a must. But big hospitals and corporations are seeing the exam as an edge, so it is advisable to take it. Anyhow, you are a registered nurse in the Philippines so there’s no question that you can pass it, iba ang pinoy mare!!!

    2.)As long as the company/hospital is willing to hire you, you can work even a fresh graduate.
    3.)You can see in the side bar what are the best recruitment agencies in Dubai, they are the best..mark my word.

    Regards,

    Hi Charming,

    Directly Hired professionals from Philippines depends on the need of the Dubai Based companies and it is mostly by referrals. I was lucky enough to be hired as an IT and Network Security Administrator of an Architectural firm here in Bur Dubai, since the British owner prefer Filipino IT than Indians.

    The only advice I can give you is to widen your contacts abroad, since they will be the one to help you get a job and be hired directly.

    Good luck ^_^

    My two cents worth will be for our kababayans not to come to Dubai without a prior job offer. Your best bet is to apply in a legitimate
    job agency in the philippines. Dubai is not the same place I came to 6 years ago. The cost of living has risen and the competition has become stiffer. You will have to compete with nationalities who speak better english and has stronger and aggressive personalities. Add to that the ones who speak arabic which is an advantage. Before you embark on this seemingly exciting and promising journey make an honest evaluation of yourself and your goals. Because if you will have to beg, steal or borrow with the hope that you can easily find a good paying job in Dubai-friends,better think twice. I advise you against coming on a visit visa to look for a job. You will only fall prey into the hands of unscrupulous employers who technically knows that it is against the law to work under that visa-so what happens is they used up your visa and in the end whatever salary they pay you (if they pay you at all) goes to paying your exit to Kish or Qeshem.
    Then you start the whole cycle for yourself again. It’s no way to live and it’s not worth the trouble.

    Hi Hitman! Hi everyone,

    I’ve been thinking about this for few days now. I’m really having a hard time to decide whether I will push through with my Dubai application or not. I am scheduled for a final interview for a call center post in Dubai. I just feel that this is for real now. I’m just scared. I don’t know why. Maybe because I read in some newspapares that Filipinos are the lowest paid wrokers in Dubai. I’m worried about the weather as well, the people, the lifestyle. Well, obviously, I haven’t been to other countries before. I am currently working in a multinational company here in the Philippines and getting only P40k a month. I guess I just need your advise.

    Thank you in advance.

    Lea

  12. Administrator said

    Hi Lea, thanks gor the comments. 40K a month in the Philippines is already big bucks, even the government and the company deducts “sangkaterbang” deductions. We can give you more accurate advice if you will gonna tell what company in Dubai you had interview with and what is the salary range. Weather is not fine here, it rise up to 47 degrees during summer and cools down to 8 degrees during winter. Opportunity wise Dubai is superb only to those “matiyaga” and “determinado”, in my own point of view I can say that, it’s better to try than to be stagnant in the Philippines. Always remember that “no place like home”.

  13. Administrator said

    Hi Ruel Maturan, marami ang naloloko sa Dubai na pinapangakuan ng tirahan at trabaho sa halagang iyong nabanggit. Mag-ingat tayo mga kabayan, pag mag bi-bisit ka sa Dubai iisa lang ang sistema…babayaran mo ang ticket mo at visa pero ikaw ang maghahanap. Please browse my site maraming akong naisulat na advise para di tayo maloko sa Dubai. About opportunity marami dito but nasa nag-aaply pa rin po ang ikakapahamak at ikatatagumpay ng isang Pilipino dito.

    Hi, last May i was interviewed by an employer from Dubai thru a local agency for Sofitel The Palace in Dubai (also the owner of Westien Philippine Plaza now Sofitel hotel). I was already selected but untill now there is no response (advise from employer)regarding the position i applied for. Although the first batch already left for Dubai last Aug. 16 (waiter, room attendant, cashiers, etc.) its almost 4 months now. Im planning to just go to Dubai thr visitor visa and my friend who is now Dubai in working in a travel agency offered me the best rate for a visit visa including fares. Shall i just wait for my employment or go to Dubai as tourist? im confused now. what if during the processing ng visit visa ko tinawagan ako ng agency ko sayang yung ibabayad ko for the visit visa. pls help me your advise will be much appreciated…thanks! by the way im an IT professional, madami ba job opportunities dyan sa Dubai for IT?

    Just wanna know how much is the monthly room rent per head if you live in Satwa, Dubai? Does 550 to 750 Dhs is the monthly rent per person? 550 to 750 dhs each room? Please let me know asap! Thank you so much!

  19. Administrator said

    RE: Your inquiry on http://www.mefilipinos.wordpress.com.

    Dear Kabayan,

    Dito po sa Dubai ay medyo may kamahalan ang rent per room ang akin pong binabanggit ay per person bed space. Satwa is one of Filipino havens, medyo mura kaysa sa Karama or Bur Dubai. Hope it hepls.

    Regards.

  20. Administrator said

    Hi to butters, yes maraming naghihintay na trabaho para sa mga Filipino nurses dito. Ang pagdadala ng pamilya ay depende sa kontrata, pero pwede mo naman bilan sila ng visit visa para sila ay makarating sa Dubai. Pang karaniwan na ring ginagawang stepping rock nang mga Filipino nurses ang Dubai upang makarating sa West and Europe, mas madali daw kase pag galing na dito.

    Hi guys,

    I have a job offer dyan sa dubai as a sales officer, is aed4,000 enough or acceptable as my starting salary (that includes bms and allowance but my commission pa daw pag nakaquota)? Accomodation is not included, kami daw ang maghahanap ng titirhan namin dyan. Does “mashreq bank” has a good reputation as an employer?
    Di ako makapagdecide kung itutuloy ko yung plano kong magwork dyan but I do believe that its better to work there.
    Any of your advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  22. Administrator said

    Hi Elle,

    AED 4,000.00 is acceptable in Dubai, if there’s a big difference between your salary in the Philippines and the offer I suggest that grab the offer. I can say that this is acceptable to a new comer, but let me tell that there are big ops in Dubai, you can get salaries ranging from 6K-8K or more depending on your qualification. My point is, that you will land in Dubai with sure employer. Mashreq bank is a local bank here in UAE, owned by one of the richest Emirati and one of the leading “local” banks I can say. Kung tinanggap mo sana lang ay huwag kang mabigla kung makakita ka ng malalaking offers sa ads pagdating sa Dubai.

    Please explore the Dubai job market to assess the offer.

    hi!

    I’am also one of those planning to go to dubai, actually i already have a tiket, be leaving this oct 25, however i have some hesitations. I have encountered the article below from khaleej times. Ibig sabihin ba nito, ito na ang katapusan ng pag vi visit visa ng mga pinoy? Advice naman jan.

    ABU DHABI – The Ministry of Labour (MoL) will not approve work visa applications for workers who have entered the UAE on visit visas, according to Saleh Al Jabri, head of the Firms Department in the MoL. “It is a clear violation of the Labour law as visitors are not allowed to work on visit visas,” he pointed out.

    Al Jabri told Khaleej Times that any company desirous of employing an expatriate should obtain a temporary work permit or employment visa, not visit visa.

    In case of violation, the employers would risk Dh10,000 fine and suspension of transactions for six months.

    Sources at MoL said that the ministry had recently rejected an application that had been initially approved by the Abu Dhabi Naturalisation and Residency Department (ADNRD) because the company had sought to hire employees on visit visas.

Malaking factor ang educational attainment dito, ngunit iyo ring pakatandaan na malaking factor din ang malakas na determinasyon.

I’m a psychology graduate and we’re planning to go to Dubai. What advice can you give for us three? You think it’s a good idea to bring our son with us?Is there any agency we can apply for while here in the Philippines before going to Dubai? I read you posts where you said karamihan sa ating mga kababayan applied for a tourist visa and ended up getting a job there, risky but is it good?

    Hello!

    I find your postings very helpful and informative. Since pare-pareho tayong magkababayan dito, I hope you could answer my questions:

    I am a fresh graduate from college and no decent work experience yet, I am just managing our home based family business since I am waiting for the response dun sa applications ko for grad studies abroad (unfortunately, wala pang nagrereply up to now). I am planning to get a visit visa to go to dubai this coming December. I plan to work na kasi my mother needs to be operated soon and malaki ang magagastos. I wanted to work to help her instead of studying again. I heard that ang mga ginagawa ng marami eh kukuha ng visit visa then dun na mismo sa dubai maghahanap ng work? Papano yun?

    My ultimate question is: What are the chances na makakakuha ako ng work pagdating ko ng Dubai? Given the fact na fresh grad ako. Pero kahit anong work muna okay na sa akin say restaurant crew, etc. Nagiipon na ako ng money for the visa, accommodation and ticket. Determinado talaga akong magwork sa Dubai pero ang worry ko kasi malaki ang itatake ko na risk. Worth it kaya ang gagawin ko? Please give me some advice and tips. I would gladly appreciate you help po. Thanks.

    Hi June,

    Visiting Dubai to be with your fiance will be the greatest thing. And also, I think it is also better for both of you who are going to start a family to be together.

    About the other aspect, let me tell you that the biggest job market here in Dubai is for Engineers, specially for Filipino Engineers which foreign and local companies gives more respect and trust. However, in my point of view it is not advisable to raise kids here, citing the culture which I don’t reccomend, the wheter which is not friendly and the cost of living which will be a big cut in a family’s pie of budget.

    Ito po ay sa aking pananaw lamang, mas makakabuti na kayo ay humingi din ng payo sa mga kaibigang nandito na.

    Hi Glynn,

    Yes Dear, pwedeng mag-apply dito ang tourist. Let me tell this way, illegal na magtrabaho ang visit visa holders pero pag nakahanap ka ay papayagan naman nilang mag work.

    I think Glynn, it’s better to take the exams bago ka pumunta dito. Halos lahat yata ng kakilala kong nurses na nanguha ng experience dito ay nasa US at Europe na. Tale note na dito sila umalis papunta doon.

    In short good stepping stone for you.

    Hi Sophie,

    Thanks sa iyong comment. Sa totoo lang ay palakasan ng loob sa Dubai. To tell you frankly kailangan ang experience pagpunta dito sa Dubai. I mean dahil na din kase na ang mga kakumpitensya rin natin dito ay kapwa natin Pinoy. But if you have determination, may kalalagyan ka dito, kung sanay ka naman na sa environment ng office, like using computers and doing other clerical works at small fluency in English, siguro ay pwede ka na rin dito. Sa totoo lang ang ibang lahi na kalaban natin sa kumpetisyon dito, ang sabi sabi ng ilan ay mga hindi naman daw nakatapos, sa madaling salita ay tayong mga Pinoy lamang ang nagpapakita ng mga lehitimong kasulatan na tayo ay propesyunal.

    Sana ay huwag mong isipin na ito ay payong pandaraya, kundi ito ay pagpapakita lamang ng tunay na nangyayari dito. Mas maganda siguro kung manguha ka muna ng kahit six months experience sa Pilipinas, but kung mag friends ka na magrerecomend sa iyo sa trabaho dito okey din.

    Tungkol sa pagkuha ng visit visa, dapat ay may kakilala ka dito na mag-aasikaso nun, bahasin mo ang ibang posts ko para hindi tayo maloko.

    Naiintindihan ko ang urgency ng iyong eagerness to work in Dubai dahil sa kalagayan ng iyong mother, pero sana alamin mo pa ang risks at cost-benefit ng iyong magiging desisiyon.

    Tungkol sa chances let me say that your inexperince will push you down but your great determination will compensate it. In short kung masipag ka makakahanap ka.

    Sana ay inyong titigan ang lahat na aspeto at hindi lamang ng payong ito dahil kayo ang tunay na nakakalam ng tunay ninyong tayo at kalagayan.

    Hi Daisy,

    Everybody have a good channce in getting work here in Dubai. Yes this is an open book for everybody that most of OFWs here in Dubai entered using visit visa and eventually landed for a job. Again let me remind everybody that this is illegal to work for tourists here in Dubai, but if while visiting and got a job, the govermenment will allow you to work once your employment via is applied.

    Cost of living standard is very high in Dubai, so it will be better if for the time being don’t go here with your son. If everything goes fine and well, It will be great for the three of you to stay together here, but while looking for a job, in my point of view it is not advisable.

    Hello Admin,

    I’m thankful for your immediate response. You’re a blessing. I’m glad I’ve found your website. Because we’ve planning about this for a very long time. My cousin has a friend in Dubai and she works as an engineer. She told me she can help us go there? Is there any other way we can go to Dubai if I don’t know anybody there?

    And if ever we go there as tourist, will they allow my son to travel with us? He just turned 1 year last October.

    Admin, my husband & I are doing these because my mother in law who is in USA is getting old, she wants us three to go somewhere we can get a good job. My husband no matter how good his english and skillful he is, he will never get a job here in the Philippines that will support our daily living.Philippines won’t give us a good future. I am a college graduate but I never had a job that paid me above 10,000.

    One big reason we want to go to Dubai is because we believed we both can at least get a job. And it’s hard for us to leave our son here. Please help me what to do step by step.

    . I also want to know you more if there’s only a way I can keep in touch with you in private.

    Anyway Admin, Thank you again.

    God Bless.

    Hi Admin!

    Maraming Salamat sa reply mo. I needed those things na marinig ko mismo from a kababayan na may experience diyan. Andami kasing nagsasabi na sige go, punta ka na makakahanap ka. Ang iba naman wag muna, dapat may experience ka. Kaya half-hearted tuloy ako. Im trying to contact my friends there para mas masigurado ko. Once again, thank you sa chunks of advices. I’ll keep reading your blog.

    Hello!

    I really want to look for a job there in Dubai. The only problem is that I dont have any contacts (employer or friends) dyan.

    I live in Mindanao so its pretty hard to go to manila almost everytime may job interview ka.

    If its not much trouble I need to know the ff.:

    1. Websites kung san ako pwede magsubmitt ng online application.
    2. Is it true na mahihirapan na pumasok dyan next year kasi wala nang visit visa? (heard it from a friend here).
    3. Is 60k enough?

    really need help here… sanay mapagbigyan… thanks.

    Hello,

    Ask ko lang kung OK na ba ang Dhs 2000 libri na lodging and transportation. 3 years and contract…Hindi pa kasali ang food nito at walang overtime fee daw. minimum of 8 hours a day 6 days a week.

    Is it OK kung i grab ko ito tapos hanap nalang ako ng ibang job diyan? Possible ba?

    Allowed ba diyan ang double job. Lets say part time work? para naman medyo magka increase ng income.

    Ano sa tingin ninyo.

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    Question naman po. Nov 3, 2006 na authenticate ng DFA ang TOR at diploma ko. Pwede ko pa ba magamit yun sa UAE embassy sa Pillipinas para sa authentication?

    Salamat po.

  53. raymond r. said

    chances in dubai as avisit visa is suwertihan,I came dubai as ocw true agency. First time ko kasi so i grab the offer for 1500 dhs salary per month.Free board and transportation. Advice ko lang pag naghanap kayo ng employer, better other nationalities like american, british, or swedish. Pag local arab ang employer barat magpasueldo.Payo ko lang mag ingat rin kayo sa kapwa pilipino,dahil sa inggit sila din sisisra sa iyo. So dapat may kaibigan kang tunay na tutulong sa iyo sa pagpunta mo sa dubai.

  54. Henry said

    Hi,

    I’m very much willing to work at Dubai but i’m worried about my age. I’m 43 years old now. Do they give job opportunities for people above 40′s? And secondly, is there enough job opportunities for sales manager positions in the area? Third, do you have any idea on the salary range for sales manager in Duabai?

    Please reply, i’m willing to take a risk for the sake of my family. Two of my kids are in college. Meaning i have a hard time now just to finance their education. One of them is taking nurse.

    Thanks in advance.

    My best regards

  55. docvice said

    Dear Admin,

    Helpful tlaga ang mga comments mo… Thanks.

    Same question din po ang sa akin tulad ng kay alfred. May expiration or validity ba yung mga authenticated documents dito. Ang sa akin kasi eh 2003 pa yung authenticated documents ko nung nag-apply ako for saudi. Baka kc pag pinadala ko sa UAE embassy eh ibalik sa akin, sayang naman ang bayad sa courier. Or baka mag-start ulit ako from step 1 dito. Also, tanong ko rin po kung magkano usually ang room rent dyan kung solo ka lang sa kwarto.

    I need your advise ASAP. Thanks.

    Hi.

    I was browsing at this site and I find it very helpful..But I’m wondering if there’s a membership here? coz i was looking on how to log-in with this site. Anyway, I want to know something here regarding my employment there in Dubai.
    Last Nov 2007, I got a call from Dubai. I got hired as a Graphic Designer. And they sent me my employment visa already but up until now, I’m still here in the philippines. I talked to my employer (arabian) that she is still processing my papers coz it should be authenticated by POLO there in Dubai. According to her, she really have a hard time fixing those things. They already extended my visa for another month. But, now..I haven’t got any news from her..2 weeks already.
    And I decided that if ever she won’t contact me this whole month of january, I will go to Dubai with Visit Visa with the help of my friend who is working there in Dubai..and already has a job for me.
    Do you think that I should wait for my employer or go there in visit visa?
    thank you and have a great day ahead!

    this is very informative. Thank you for sharing your experiences.I am proud of you! I am a Filipino too! I was searching in net how to enter in Dubai in a legal way as I really want to work there. But I just get discouraged everytime I apply in agencies here in Phils since they are always requiring 3 years work experience. I still have 1 year experince in my hospital now(currently working in a Tertiary Hospital). I am a Registered Nurse here in Phils.I’m just 23 yrs old and will be turning 24 on May 2008. I really want to work in Dubai as early as possible. Could anyone help me or give me some tips on how to do it in a legal way?? Pls send me an email, scagampang@yahoo.com…. I can do any type of jobs wether it is janitorial, a nanny…I don’t mind as long as I can earn money to support in my needs while in Dubai since I don’t have friends there. Just a stepping stone for me to get a working visa in Dubai and have a job fitted in my profession. Pls!!!! Mga Pinoys dyan sa Dubai…help me!!! or HIRE ME!!!!! I don’t complain what kind of job as long as it is decent and I am being paid…. I am desperate to work abroad since my salary here in Phils is not enough to support my family no matter how many hours you are in your work already.

    Your site is very informative. I am planning to go to dubai soon. I have a sister who worked in one of the hospitals there as medtech. I am a nurse, worked in the ICU, passed US exams like CGFNS and IELTS. My questions are:
    * Are there lots of hirings for nurses there in dubai?
    *What would be my chances of getting a job related to my course within the 2 month period? I am hard working, with a lot of perseverance.
    * My sister who is there won’t help me with my visa and ticket, only for housing and food…Is there an agency where I can apply here in the Phils that directly hire nurses?
    * How much is the starting salary of a nurse there?
    * If ever, can I get whatever job available, say, in a hotel just so I could get working visa then if ever I will find a hospital job I will resign from my hotel job. Can I do that? is there a fee for breach of contract? if so…how much??
    *Thank you so much…may I know your email add??

  69. rich said

    hi Zhai!
    Kailangan ipa authenticate docs sa UAE embassy. Pagdating mo dito ipapa attest mo naman yan sa Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Deira, Al Maktoum). From my own experience yan. Sa husband ko din ganun ang pinagawa ng company nila. Kaya para mas sigurado ka, gawin mo na. Pag nandito ka na at kailangan mo ng authenticated, ipapadala mo na naman docs mo sa Pinas, dagdag gastos pa. Goodluck.

  70. rich said

    hello Arlene! tumaas na naman ang house rent sa Dubai. 500 up para makakuha ka ng decent flat to stay (bed space na may capacity 4 pax up). excluded pa DEWA 100. transpo naman minsan provided ng company, i verify mo din yun. o kaya kumuha ka ng tirahan mo sa malapit. okay din pag may accommodation. mura lang bus dito 1.5 dir to 2.0 pag taxi mahal. food naman budget ka ng 200 siguro. sim card 150 up. ano pa ba….

  71. rich said

    Hi Marie. First, maganda ang qualifications mo. Wag mo na pag isipan ang hotel kasi wala pa yatang 2k aed ang salary, at konti lang din ang hiring. kung magtitiyaga ka sa hospitals, mas malaki ang chance mo. madaming malaking hospitals sa Abu Dhabi, wish ko makapasok ka sa military hosp dun. i post mo e mail add mo, i’ll try to help.

    Good day!

    I am planning to go to dubai as tourist and find a job there! I am 40 years old and have at least 15 years exp. in handling various computer related jobs. The longest is that I worked as an IT Manager for a large company for 9 years.

    My problem is that, I didn’t finish my college education.

    With regards to the authentication of TOR is it still required even if you didn’t finish a college course?

    What is my chance to find a job in Dubai?

    Hope u could give me some ideas before I decide to visit the place.

    Thank you very much.

    jun,

    first, they do authenticate TOR with Diploma. Second, most companies are hiring Indians for IT tasks (most but not all). Third, competition is tough. You may apply as a tutor, then widen your network. who knows, somebody can refere you to their company.

    To all my kababayans who wish to visit to Dubai,

    Yes, Dubai is a nice place!!! It has beautiful and tall buildings. Pinoys are everywhere. Just a sort of an advise, based on what i have experienced; Never wish to visit Dubai if 1) You don’t have enough money. 2) if you don’t know anyone fron here, kc kung minsan,kapwa kababayan na rin natin ang nanloloko dito.
    Think many times before coming to Dubai, if you have work sa atin jan ka na lang kng ok naman para hindi na kayo mahirapan pa… THINK, THINK!!!!!!!!!!! ok

    Hi Jun,

    http://www.gulfnews.com ; http://www.khaleejtimes.com > go to classifieds or appointments or there are also schools of short courses like Karama Institute, Zabeel Institute, Oscar Institute that you can find as inserts in the newspapers (which I do not know if they have a website). or http://www.lakasngloob.com? ;-)

  86. Admin said

    Hi Stephen,

    Accountants are the most in-demand here maybe second to Engineers. I’m a professional accountant too and if you are lucky you an earn big bucks here. The best advise mga kabayan, EXPLORE the DUbai jobmarket sa internet for you have ideas. Try to open the jobsites in the right side panel of our website and you can assess there the market.

    Thanks to Happy, you are always welcome here. If you want to write something about Dubai that may help Kabayans (or anyone else who are interested in writing that wants to put their article in this blog) just mail it to aragonerwind@yahoo.com

    Goodluck to all!!!

    Hi Stephen.

    I’m here in Dubai for almost a year, And i went here for only visit visa.I am accountant graduate but I’m only 20 years old and thats why its really hard for me to find a job. My aunty she is the one who support and help me for my financial. And i was so lucky, i found a job which is not my field..I was working now in Travel and tourism Company. So tanong ko lng po if possible na makahanap agad din ng work yung brother ko, He is older than me .because i plan to get him. We know that theres a lot a kababayans here in dubai without permanet job. So i was afraid to get him here.

    Thanks

    Hi Mly,

    I’m a CPA too and believe me that Dubai will be a good market place on whatever services you can render to companies. Accountants rank second to Engineers in terms of demand according to a survey by ibe of the leading job consultancy here.

    You can earn big bucks here…try to enter in the big 4..malaki daw sweldo dun…

    Hello there! Wow this is a great forum. I’m also planning to try my luck in Dubai. I’m a CPA and is currently working as Senior Accountant here in the Philippines. I’ll be quitting my job this coming May, uuwi kasi yung isa sa mga friends ko and our plan is sabay kami pagbalik nya by June. I have some close friends there who are all willing to help me process my visit visa, all of them are non-CPAs but have found good jobs in Dubai. Sila actually yung nagpapalakas ng loob ko. As of now, Im preparing my documents, I hope someone could tell me pano and how much yung authentication of documents thru DHL. Ok ba yung salary range sa Dubai for CPAs. I have over 2 years experience in manufacturing company and another 1 year in telecommunication company. I’m keeping my fingers cross and hoping that my decision is right. Afterall, Im doing this for my family – I am the breadwinner and my youngest siser will be starting college. All the tips and advise will be highly appreciated…thanks thanks email me @ mcimanguiat@yahoo.com

    To Cecille, 200 lang binayaran ko sa DFA as authentication fee for my diploma/tor and prc certificate. . tapos another 220 for DHL para deliver na lang sayo papers mo. Then sa UAE embassy 3,400 -authentication fee and 420 for DHL. Mabilis lang ngayon. Thanks to DHL.

  94. Cecille said

    Thank you Mly. That’s great, mas ok pala talaga thru DHL, aside from being hassle free, di naman pala ganun kamahal. Thanks a lot.

    Hey yah!!!

    Just wondering kung mahigpit ba philippine immigration sa mga tourist na nagpupunta sa Dubai… for obvious reason na alam nila na ang tlagang purpose eh hindi naman mag tour kundi mag job hunt… meron na ba kayong nalaman na hinirang dito pa lang sa atin for the same reason…?????

    Hi Y’all! God day!

    Congratulations to Admin..very informative & helpful site that caters to pinoys looking for greener pastures in the UAE. I too am contemplating of looking for one there. I will be sponsored by my husband (he’s a nurse who works w/ the dubai police ambulance dept/paramedic) & hopefully will be there this may & job hunt. Im a dentist. I just want to inquire if dentists are in demand jobs there too. My husband cant find work for me coz he’s too tired after his work nman. Bka any one of you can give me info about dental jobs in dubai.

    And, do I need to go and process the authentication of my papers personally? Can I authorize someone na lang do that for me aside from DHL?

    To Jenny… there’s the SUCCESS agency in evangelista mkti which exclusively recruits nurses to work w/ the dubai police ambulance dept. Its located at the back of the police precint. I forgot the number e. Just look for anne…

    Thanks!

    Kung maghahanap kayo ng trabaho d2..cguraduhin nyo lng hindi indiano mga amo nyo.Pinakamababa mgbigay ng sahod at ang babaho pa.Kaya sa mga ngaapply sa mga agency jan sa pinas. ask nyo muna cla kung ano nationality ng amo nyo.Ang mahirap pa nito sa loob ng ofis nyo cla ang mattaas ang sahod pro kung tutuusin aasa nman lahat2 sa pinoy.That is just based on my experience here and i think most of our “kababayans” experience here..So black that is whay you got cheaper rates because you dont know nothing.You’re onl;y good in eating your very bad smell curry and chiken biryani.

    I dont think that when it comes to the competitiveness Indians beats the Filipino’s you know why?its the other way around Filipino’s beat the Indians in every field or profession,we go to the numbers according to CNN i was in Saudi Arabia watching news in CNN it turned out to be that there three countries which are the major source of Migrant workers globally. First is China out of 1.4(estimated) billion population there are 30 million chinese migrant workers scattered around the globe, meaning 2.1% of the population,second are the stinky Indians,out of 1.2(estimated)billion population there are 20 million Indian migrant workers scattered around the globe meaning it accounts for 1.6% of their entire population,Black you know who’s the 3rd?Filipino’s which has around 9 million,now, Mr. or pareng Black, you do the math on how many percent out of only 87 million filipino’s around the globe and you yourself can say who’s competent enough,what you see isn’t always what you get pare ko…

    ask ko lang kung papanu na-ilakad authentication ng mga papers through DHL? andito kasi ako sa malaysia ngayon waiting na visa for abu dhabi. but the company which i will be employed hindi nag advise na dapat authenticated mga documents ko.
    nalaman ko lng sa friend ko sa abu dhabi.
    I have all my original documents with me dito sa malaysia. tanong ko lang kung puede bang ma authenticate mga ito without necessarily for me to go back to the philippines?

    Hi Admin, This is a wonderful blog site. Thank you for keeping it up!

    I’m based in the Philippines and jusr recently accepted a relocation offer from Dubai. It’s an American company that needed to hire people for their middle east headquarter based in the Jebel Ali free port zone. They are working on my employment visa as I speak.

    They are giving us housing allowance of 115k dhs per year, but when we went to our look-see trip couple of weeks ago. most two bedroom apartments or houses around the area shown to us by the agents are up to 175k! Is that the real cost of rent now? Do you have tips for us to source cheaper rent that is close to the Jebel Ali free zone area? We want to try to stay away from the Deira side because we did experience the heavy traffic during rush hours.

    I will be sponsoring my husband, but I want to find out what kind of paper work he needs to do with POEA. He just started requesting his TOR and diploma, so that means we’ll probably have to have the paperworks sent to us overseas.

    Thank you!

    you , we dont know that” so im confused because my friends told me that i will just

    wait for a week to receive the UAE authenticated transcript.

    2. what will i do so i will able to receive my transcript after sending it?

    3. how much?

    please help me here too.. im really need your advices.

    thanks very much!!

    Hey Anjch,

    Check out this site for the information and process you need for your paperwork. http://www.vjcamba.com/?p=22

    Below is the location of the UAE Embassy.

    UAE Embassy
    2nd floor Renaissance Building
    215 Salcedo St. Legaspi Village
    Makati, PO Box 2221
    Metro Manila, Philippines
    Tel: + 632 817 3906; Fax: + 632 818 3577

    If you are married, make sure that you have your marriage certificate certified by NSO and authenticated through the same process as well. I’m not so sure about the cost but I think the UAE embassy charges 1,500 for the authentication.

    Since you are entering Dubai on visit visa, make sure you have all your sponsor’s information when you go through immigration. Do not tell the immigration officer that you are going there to look for work, just tell them that you are visiting a friend. Be prepared if they ask you how long you plan to stay there. I’m not sure if you have a return flight ticket but they usually look for that when you are entering as a tourist. If HongKong is just a lay over stop, you will not have to go through HK immigration at all.

    You will have to prepare P750 per person for the airport tax, and depending whether this is included in your ticket, P1620 per person for travel tax at the Manila airport.

    If you have an open line cell phone, you can buy a pre-paid sim when you land in Dubai for around 70dhs. That will get you connected when you go job hunting.

    Before you leave, make sure you have prepared copies of your resume and documents (TOR etc) so it’s ready to hand out when you get to Dubai.

    Although it’s illegal to sublet rooms in Duba (only married couples and relatives are allowed to live in the same house), there are a lot of ads you can find online that sublets rooms for starters.

    Please do a lot of research online before you leave. There is still a lot of opportunities in Dubai but you have to be very careful and thorough. The cost of living from an housing standpoint is extremly high in Dubai so consider all aspects before you decide.

    Best of luck!

    Hsin

  133. terry said

    Hi Anjch,
    Regarding UAE authentication, only DHL knows how to send to embassy then embassy

    to you. So look for the service of DHL. Authentication will cost you Php.1,700.00 per

    documets. You will attached managers check, address to UAE embassy,with the

    documets. TOR and diploma considered as one documents, so that is 1,700.00. It will

    take 2 weeks to finish at embassy. I hope this would help you.

    Hi everyone! Was browsing the net looking for cheap fares going to Dubai when I came across this site. Reading through all the posts, i find it very helpful and very informative. I already have a visit visa but i still dont have a ticket for dubai. Where can I find an agency who will issue yung “dummy ticket” na sinasabi nila?

    My friend who is suppose to take care of all these things, nagastos ang pera na ibinayad namin sa kanya. There were three of us who paid 65 thousand each last June 3, 2008 pa, Its for the visit visa, one way plane ticket with the “dummy ticket” and two months room rental. Buti naman at naunang naprocess yung visa ko kaya natanggap ko yesterday. The other two na nagbayad wala pa ring papers till now. Nalaman na lang namin na naubos na ng kaibigan namin ang pera and the worse thing there is nakalipad na pa sya papuntang Dubai nung Juy 5, 2008.

    Yung pinsan nya na nag-sponsor sa amin, nacontact ko at ibinalik sa akin 50% nung ibinayad ko. Parang lumalabas na 32, 500.00 pesos ang binayaran ko para lang sa visit visa ko.

    Kahit ganun ang nangyari, I still wanted to go to Dubai coz I have already resigned from my job (sales and marketing) last January 2008.

    Please help me whom to contact for the tickets and if merong makarefer kung san ako pwedeng tumuloy when I get to Dubai. Sinasabi nung pinsan ng kaibigan namin na nanloko sa amin na puno na daw sila sa flat nila. Di na talaga namin mababawi yung for room rental na ibinayad namin.

    Will really appreciate all your advises.

  135. bez said

    anjch,

    hi..you can also look for any wwwexpress they are affiliated with dhl, they will be the one responsible for sending your docu to UAE embassy and back to you ..terry is right..1 document costs 1700php and as for my paper it was delivered back to me within 5 days. Their service is really superb.

    Goodluck.

    Hi Hsin, terry and bez:

    Thanks for all the info you have given me its really appreciateed.

    Anyway, i already sent my TOR thru DHL and i paid 1700 +435 (for fee and for managers check).

    1. Do we really need to be authenticate the marriage contract? what if i just had a NSO authenticated marriage certificate? is it that good enough?

    2. The process of our visa are included the tickets one way and the return dummy tickets for 2900 dhs.our flight is on july 30 and retuen dummy tickets sked will be ated august 30. My friend told me if ever our immigration ask us what are we going to do there? just tell that we are going to visit my cousin in ajman. The return tickets is on august 30, if the immigration ask us how long are we going to stay there, i we must tell them for just a month. but my questions was, are the people in the immigration will not suspect that because my friend ask us to bring the company ID here so they would know we still have work here so we will go back for sure but that is after a month, maybe they will think that good thing my boss here in phil allow us to have vacation for a month? what is the best answer is? please help

    3. the airport tax and travel tax , we are going to pay that on manila airport right?

    4. TOR or resume: my friend remind us DO NOT BRING any CV or transcript or any USD f;lasg drive that has a save copy of our Cv because it will obvious that we are going to look for a job there?

    5. yah, its really expensive. my problem now are the place to stay, i met a good friend even though i havent met her personally she still kind enough to let us stay in her pad for 2 days and that 2 days we need to look for a place to stay.. the probkem is, i dont know how can we look for a place to stay there.. i hope god is good enough he will not allow us to sleep on the road. =’( i hope we will be able to find a place to stay right away so we can look for a job right away too.,..

    i hope there are filipinos who is willing to help..

    guys , thank you very much!!! i hope you can stoll help me here!!

    A BIG THANKS TO YOU GUYS!!!! Godbless,

  138. Hsin said

    Hi Anjch,

    Your friend may be right not to bring copies of the CVs, it can look suspicious. Although they hardly search your baggage though. To be on the safe side, just send them to your webmail and download it when you need them.

    I also don’t think the immigration will question the length of your vacation. Just be confident and casual. Dress up a little too so they don’t feel like you don’t have enough money to stay that long.

    As for the marriage certificatet, the reason why it’s safer to have it authenticated is beacause in case one of your visit visa expires and only one has found a job, the one with a job can sponsor the spouse as husband/wife visa so that both of you can continue to stay in Dubai. The marriage certificate will have to be required to be able to do that. I am not sure if NSO authentication is enough because mine is being sent to DFA as well. Maybe you can consult the DHL guys to find out.

    The airport and travel tax should be paid at the NAIA airport.

    Although it’s technically illegal for unrelated people or unmarried couples to stay under the same roof, there are a lot of people that sublets their apartment rooms. That might be your best bet while you are on job hunting. There are numbers of online classified that will give you an idea of the cost. You can check this site for more information: http://www.dubizzle.com

    As long as you do your research properly and know your strengths, you should be able to find a job quickly. Your first job might not be your ideal job but at least it’ll get you going for a while until you settle down. We know a friend who went to Dubai on a wife visa and found a secretarial job that pays 4kdhs in 4 days. :)

I’ve been like going back and forth here in dubai for 3 times now. my first visit was 2004, wasnt able to find a good job and i came back in the philippines. i tried last 2006 and still failed. last may, i had to go back here since, i see that our country is hopeless already. you may ask how am i able to afford those three visits? my sister is working as a cabin crew so i get free tickets to travel, and was allowed to stay at her accomodation for free 60 days a year. you would ask why didn’t i get a job during my 2 attempts? i can say i might be too picky.. i have my brackets to get a proper salary offer. i had IT experience back there in the philippines. so way back 2004, my focus was to get a job related in IT. i had interviews in hotels but was offered to work as room boy and stewarding. i didnt accept. due to pride reasons but now i realized that working in a five star hotel might be rewarding. they offer like 1500dhs basic pay, plus tips. i disregarded those things before since i was looking for IT positions. why am i saying this? look, 1500dhs salary in a 5 hotel isnt bad. they have a decent accomodation plus benefits. after having a lot of interviews on this 3rd try of visit.. i was able to prove what our other kababayans were saying. dubai has changed a lot for the past years. tight competition is right. not only among with us filipinos and indians.. but with other western nationalities too. (have heard that they were receiving salary offers twice or thrice as what filipinos gets) I noticed that there are also growing numbers of chinese and africans recently. those are the individuals that we have to compete with. and as i was saying, i had interviews but all i got was very low salary offers.. they would say that “theres an indian who is willing to accept this(small) amount. its really not fair. but i know this is how things work here now. given that “low offer” everyone back there in the philippines must really try to think a lot before risking your money and lives going here with visit visa. during my first try here, i was wiling to take low offers thinking that its only for a start. but now i was left hanging. everything here is rising. yes, the development is huge! from tall buildings, extreme architechture and so on. but along with that is, they started to charge mall parking, they even have what they call SALIK. its like our NLEX and SLEX there. they have areas which they will charge you as you pass by. its not like our toll ways there. they will charge you for passing by a bridge, or a particular street. accomodation rents are going up too.. there are rumors that taxes will be soon implented. malls are starting to charge their parking slots for a whopping 100dhs (in BURJUMAN).

    i was disappointed with the offers i was getting. no matter how i wanted the job, i still couldnt get it because i was thinking how am i gonna survive with that amount? how am i suppose to send money to my relative? how am i suppose to save for myself? and another thing, i discovered that not all of the companies are giving, well not giving accomodation is not new. transpo allowances or food. but during my most recent interview, i found out that there were companies that doesnt give even a medical benefits. and another thing, no free round tickets for a vacation back in the philippines! its even a good company!

    for you “bez” yes its true that new visa regulations will be implemented on august 1. you can get a visa for 90 days worth 1000 dhs. not 2000. think a lot before going here. because now i am having a hard time here considering i am not having so much problem with allowances etc. but being away from home, false hopes in even harder. consider applying over an agency there and its better to go here with a job offer at hand. and the weather is terribly hot these days, its really hard going to interviews with your wet underarms, uncomfortable feeling because of the heat outside.

    i am not sharing these to discourage my fellow filipinos. maybe your guts will get you a job, but also think that once you’re trapped in the hole or the job that you dont really like, that can cause another trouble.

  148. Hi BEZ,

    yes… its true a friend told me na starting august 1 month nlang pwde mag stay sa dubai for visit visa and need to exit na at ang pag renew daw 1000dhs additional.

    kaya nga talagang sinikap namin na makakapunta kmi ng within the july range sabi kase ng kakilala namin pilitin namin para ma accomodate padin ung 2 months stay.

    haaay sobrang sad!!!

  149. Hsin said

    Hey Anjch,

    I think the best way is not to rush going there unless you have everything set. It’s a huge financial risk to go there without settling at least a place to stay for a month while you look for a job. You need to go prepared and at least have extra money to pay the bed space.

    Please think through it carefully first ok? I know it’s a huge opportunity but it is also a huge risk if you’re not careful.

    We’re still in the paperwork stage and will be in Dubai around mid August. Although we have already visited Dubai as tourists in June. I can tell you that Dubai is not as rosy as it seems and poverty still exists within the blue collar workforce. Think it through ok?

    Hi!
    Required documents-
    I was accepted by Aswan Language School. I was referred to a site which does the processing of work visa and work permit. I got a response that I should wait for my turn. is that correct?

    I graduated from a U.S. university. I have my U.S. TOR and diploma with me, all originals. I gather I will have to bring these documents to the U.S. Embassy in Manila, correct? and not the CHED of our country, since I didn’t graduate from a Philippine schools. Is this logic correct?

    My Philippine passport is new. My copy of my birth certificate is already authenticated by the National Stat Office.

    Do I still have to bring my U.S, acquired TOR and Diploma which are U.S. Embassy certified to Malacanang?

    Then, I will have to send all of the originals to the UAE Embassy in Manila? Is this correct?

    What are the purpose of these authenticated documents? These are required for residency visa? Do I understand this correctly?

    Please help me. Since I have so many questions, when you send in your reply, please copy the question or write your reply beside each question .

    Thank you.

    hi,

    i’m going to Dubai by August with a Tourist Visa. I’ve been working in Qatar and Bahrain in a same company as a saleslady. I can speak English very well since i’ve been working too in a call center here in Cebu. Aside from that, i am very good in Arabic language. I am an undergraduate of dentistry and i’m planning to apply even a receptionist or as a secretary. Yet, i don’t have an experience in the job category. don’t u think that’s possible? thanks, and God bless u.

    Hi, what agency assisted you for your authentication of your requirements?
    is it advisable If i will apply for a visa on my own? What are the requiremnts para i grant nila ako ng visa? Anong magiging reason why they will not give me a visa? Ilang percent ang denial for visa application? Hope you can give more information.
    I am a B.S Nursing Graduate but i just practice for 1 year as a trainee nurse and now i am connected in Real Estate as a Sales Manager. Do you think i have a door in their country? thnks.

    Visitors wishing to visit UAE must from now on apply for tourist visas, it was reported on Wednesday.

    The new regulations replace the old ‘visit’ visa option available to citizens of 79 countries, including the sub-continent and most of the Middle East, the UAE daily Gulf News quoted Major General Mohammad Ahmad Al-Merri, Director General of Dubai Naturalisation and Residency Department (DNRD) as saying.

    People applying for a visa will have to pay a refundable deposit of 1,000 dirhams ($272) with separate visas issued for, for example, medical treatment or study, the report added.

    “We will know why each person is coming here for and the sponsor will be responsible for the visitor. This will address the issue of illegal overstayers,” Al-Merri said.

    Additionally, the 34 nationalities who were previously able to obtain a free visit visa for 60 days upon arrival in the UAE will now have to pay 100 dirhams for a 30-day visa, according to the new rules, the report added.

    The DNRD and the Economic Department met with representatives of hotels, tourist agencies, hospitals and educational institutions on Wednesday to brief them on the new federal visa changes and how they will be implemented.

    Visa runs to Kish Island, Oman and other neighbouring countries have also been stopped. People wanting to change their visas must return to their home countries.

    “Nobody can now go on these visa runs. We don’t want people to get stuck [on these trips],” said Al-Merri.

    Visa applicants coming back from any of the neighbouring countries of the UAE will have their applications rejected.

    A visit visa will also not be converted into a work visa, Al-Merri said: “Applicants will have to go back to their home country and wait for the work visa, which will be authorised by the Ministry of Labour,” he said.

    Dubai: People caught working on a visit visa will be fined more than Dh50,000 and banned from entering the UAE and those employing them will face harsh penalties, a senior interior ministry official said on Wednesday.

    Under the new rules each visa applicant will have to pay a Dh1,000 refundable deposit, Mohammad Ahmad Al Hammadi, Director of the Department of Entry Permits at the DNRD, said.

    Resident expatriates who bring their spouses on a visit visa can change it to a residence visa, but they cannot work, he said. Each application will be studied carefully before issuing it and the application should be logical.

    Individuals and companies can apply for visit visas, he said. Tourist visas can only be applied for by licensed travel agencies and hotels. They cannot be submitted by individuals. The official said there would be no visa runs to nearby countries.

    “People who go there from the UAE after the expiry of their visa will not be issued a new visa. It is best for them to go back to their country and wait for their visa to enter the UAE again,” he said.

    He said a visit visa holder will be allowed to enter the UAE once within two months from the date of issue of the visa.

    Residents can apply for a visa for their spouse or blood relative. Expatriates will not be allowed to sponsor friends. And sponsoring other blood relatives will require approval of an undersecretary of the Interior Ministry or their representative.

    Goodluck!!!

    hello everybody!

    What have rhaine said and restated from one of the newspaper here are crystal clear, so all of you guys planning to go here should think a hundred times before doing so.

    If you still have your job in the Philippines i think it would be better to stay there or if you are persistent to go to Dubai or anywhere here in the UAE, I would suggest that you apply with our accredited agencies there and go with the legal process of getting an employment visa.

    nandito sa dubai now. sobra hirap maghanap ng work. sobrang init din. been here almost a month and anlabo ng rules nila… lagi na lang sinasabi na magbibigay ng guidelines. sana ginawa nila yung law eh may guidelines na. eto kami andaming di pa maintidihan ang new rule. we know about dun sa bagong visa ang problema eh papano yung nakakuha ng visa prior to aug 1? pwede ba silang mag extend pa ng one month just like the old law? if yes, how long? how much? if not, kailangan ba na bumalik talaga sa pinas? kasi hindi naman pwede sabihing renewal ang samin kasi kung mag exit sa kish, eh babalik naman na naka tourist… grrrrr i tried to email DNRD, hanggang ngayon wala pa sagot.

    kaya sa me plano, mag isip ng mabuti. mas ok yung me sure work na para walang sakit sa ulo.

    pero kung sa tingin eh kaya talaga sige, kaya natin to!

    at eto pa, sa mag aapply na visit visa ang gamit, iipit nyo sa magazine ang mga CV nyo para hindi masita. pag nasita kayo, pakiusapan nyo na lang ang pulis na hindi na mauulit.

    good luck sating lahat…. sige maghahanap pa ako trabaho… :) hehehe

    hello.
    i just wanna know kung magkano ang basic salary sa uae, gusto ko kasi magwork sa dubai or abu dhabi.
    currently i am working in europe, and i have a european nationality, though my race is filipino.
    gusto ko magwork dyan kasi feeling ko kasi masaya dyan.. tama ba?
    mataas kasi ang cost of living dito sa europe. atsaka madami pinoy dyan hehe.
    gusto ko lang ma experience ang mag work dyan, para masaya. miss ko kasi ang mejo mainit din na weather.
    i dont have any special skills whatsoever so i can work whatever. i am working now in an office as a clerk. but i can work in a hotel, that would be fun i think!! kahit bellboy . iba kasi yung marami ka ring experience kung san san diba para masaya.
    i plan to go there on a tourist visa, but pwede bang makahanap kaagad ng lodging in one day??
    i dont want to stay in hotels kasi super mahal. are there hostel or bed space willing to sublet for 2 weeks lang…?
    any advice/tips would be appreciated.

    yung importante ko palang tanong:
    yung mga papers/documents na na mention sa taas like yung me ribbon from malacanang.. kasama ba yun sa mga ipapasa when you apply for job.. with the cv.. or dun lang yung sa mga magapply ng visit visa?
    kasi based sa aking research i can go there kahit walang visa.
    so pwede na ba akong mag pasa ng mga cv without those aforementioned papers..?(i.e authenticated papers) or are they all asked by the employers too..??

    thanks and greetings,

    Good day,

    Hi, my name is Jay. I’ve been here in dubai since May 05, 2008 as a tourist, of course having a purpose of getting a job. It’s true that there are a lot of jobs available here. Luckily, I’ve found a job that I desired in just 2 weeks that was (May 15) and I gave my documents to the company for them to process my papers after I signed the contract. They assured me that I don’t need to exit no more because they can process my papers before my visa expires. Two months had passed, nothing is happening on my visa and that’s the time that I had to exit to Kish Island. They let me borrowed my passport to proceed to Kish Island with my expense. When I came back (July 07), having I thought that it was too close to get my working visa and to start a work there, I gave back my documents to that same company (July 13)and promised me that I’m going to get my salary on the 28th of July, but I haven’t receive any. Until now there is no news yet, no updates, but promises that they are doing their best to process my papers. And now, for the 2nd time, my visa will be expired on the 7th of this month. They told me not to worry because they are going to process my visa within this week?

    My only question is.. is it possible that they can process my working visa once my tourist visa expired because they told me not to exit the country no more?

  187. Dubai is very nice place to work and live,multinational environment ,it is expensive specially accomodation so you guys have to take care when accepting job offers out there.

    The weather is hot and humid most of the year,get better in winter monthes.

    There is a good website where you can upload your CV and apply for jobs for free:

    Thank you sa mga nagpost po dito.. marami po kong natutunan.. Mga kabayan, I was hired directly by a company at Dubai, nagpost po ko sa Justlanded.com.. nagulat nga ko kasi mabilis nilang naayos ang employment visa ko dun tapos ngayon wait ko nalang po ang documents na verified by the phil consulate sa dubai para maprocess ko sa poea to get my exit clearance then after alis na ko.. Hopefully kita kits tayo sa dubai mga kabayan, email add ko weng_1018@yahoo.com. I was offered accommodation and transportation kaso sa Sharjah pa ko, ok po ba ang makishare nalang sa room sa dubai kahit 6 persons? mahirap po ba at madumi? kasi sayang naman kung pwede kong i-convert sa cash ung free accommodation at transpo ko, para makapagpadala ng mas malaki. Salamat po and God bless sa lahat ng mga nagtatrabaho sa dubai for their families.. (“,)

    To Grace…..try mo punta POEA 2nd floor Ortigas. Sa name hire dept. Just present the employment contract , employment visa, passport,plane ticket,medical exam result, PDOS certificate. Yoong OEC diyan na kinukuha sa POEA ground floor Balik-Mangagawa at magbabayad ka rin OWWA insurance & Philhealth. Ang processing fee namehire ay maliit lng. Hindi ka na dadaan accredited agency POEA kasi nga “namehire” ka.

    hi guys,

    i have some questions… err… alot of questions… medyo kc naguguluhan aq sa policy ng dubai ngyon…

    1st. me available pa bang 90 days visa for tourist (visit visa)?
    2nd. if not, so 30 days lang ang availble (just for confirmation)?
    3rd. some people are going with dummy return ticket; na di-detect n ba nila un?
    4th. if not in kish or queshm; pede bang sa ibang country mag exit i.e singapore, HK or thai.. o pinas lng ang choice mo?
    5th. sobrang hirap n ba talagang hirap humanap na ng work jan?
    6th. ganun n rin ba kahirap o katagal mag process ng working visa ang Free Zone company or still nka depende pa rin sa company na m proprocess ng working visa mo?

    yun lng po… sa po may masagot questions q.. ^^

    nanggaling na aq ng dubai… umuwe aq ng pinas kc end of contract, im planning to go back but then the world market gone down; lumakas ang dollars VS. peso.. so i thought our economy is well but then bumabalik n nmn sa dati ang lahat…

    i have relatives there in dubai.. inspite of the new policies for visit visa, they still iecourage me to go back there… just that my mom is worried about the news on the new policies…

    thank you.. please do reply on me…

    Hi!

    I would just like to know what are the requirements for visiting DUBAi? I’m also coming to Dubai hopefully by November and a friend wants to visit sometime soon. I just don’t know what are the requirements.

    I want to know what are our options since I cannot sponsor him. I have read something that tourist visas could only be applied by travel agents and hotel agents and not by individuals anymore.

    Thanks.

    HI

    This is Richly Tagbacaula from Misamis Occidental Philippines.
    I am looking for a job in Dubai. Currently I am working in the Local Government Unit of Tangub City as Administrative Staff for more than a year already under the City Mayor’s Office. I graduated BS MAthematics and finished it as Cum Laude. I have also gained 8 hour training in line with Statistics at University of the Philippines Los Baños.

    I have a relative in Dubai who wants to help me in obtaining a tourist visa. She said that she can refer me to a travel agency who will then process my visa.

    She cannot sponsor me because she said she has to pay for a bond.She said if only i am her brother then she can sponsor me directly. ANyway I have already a red ribbon meaning all my documents are already authenticated by CHED DFA and Malacanang and the UAE Embassy in the Philippines. By first week of November she will then tell the travel agency to process my papers. My problem is the job. Can a 22 year-old graduated in BS MAthematics work in DUbai? I am afraid I cannot find a job within two months. Can you advise me or help me to find good companies where I can possibly apply for employment? You can then email me on richly121785@yahoo.com.ph

  216. Richly said

    By the way I am a male. Many had said that male applicants can hardly find a job in dubai. Is that true? What are my chances?

    hi i just want to ask..im a registered nurse here in the philippines..and i want to apply as a nurse in dubai..what exams do i need to take for them to hire me?thanks!

  218. focused said

    the truth of the matter is that although dubai is seemingly a safe haven/attractive career environment, i believe otherwise. i really don’t know how much you guys are earning in dubai. regardless of how high your salary is, i assume you must master the value of thriftiness and the art of self=preservation to survive. i work in yemen and, gladly, we get paid in dollars (to my advantage). still, i find the cost of living in dubai rocket-high, i visit dubai at least twice a month and believe me, you would spend a hundred dollars in less than an hour without even knowing where you’ve spent it. transpo palang, taxi grabe ang singil. and traffic is horrendous. i love the country but i can’t imagine staying there for a long period. buti pa dito sa yemen, sobrang mura… cosmetics, grocery, you name it! and the best part of it is i feel unbelievably safe here. safer than anywhere else in the world.

    the universal advice is: adhere to the country’s law and tradition because you are a stranger in their native land. they may adore you, they may favour you, but the locals will nver defend you when you’ve disgraced their land. magpakatatag pero wag magkupal. goodluck sa lahat!!!
    mataas ang respeto at bilib nila sa pinoy. let’s all live up to that expectation. for our generation and the generations more to come.

    Hi Admin,

    Nice site hope you continue doing your informative opinion. Anyway, my sister-in-law is convincing me to come with her this Feb,2009. Im a CPA with 14 experience in various field. But I’m already above 40 do you think it will be hindrance for me to land a job there? I’m not satisfied with my current job. Im already the Finance and Administrative Manager but my salary is still on the 30k label. Do you think its worth a try to go there. How much do you think is the salary range there?

    Hope you can find time to answer my query.

    we heard from someone who’s currently working in dubai that the new special mission visa, which allows the holder to stay in dubai for a maximum of 180 days, has an age requirement. is it true that you are entitled for such visa if you are at least 25 years old?

  230. Allan said

    @ Rudolf

    from what i know, transcripts or red ribbon is not necessary in some job criteria like sales. To professionals, they prefer that their profession is written in their residence visa on their passport so ( that needs a red ribbon ).

    I’m sure there are call centre’s here in Dubai but of course, this is an arab country so they prefer those who can speak arabic. But you can still try, nobody’s stopping you.

    yes, you can get married here in consulate.

    money is very important, the costs will depend until when you will stay without residence visa.

    I hope my answers gave you some idea bro…

    Hello,

    I’m very glad to find a site like this which answers questions in a very short time. I’m a gov’t employee working in a provincial engineering office(fifth class province) for 9 years already, I just wanna know my chances if I plan to work in Dubai or even in Abu Dhabi. My brother who’s also a Civil Engineer got a high paying job with a British company there in Abu Dhabi, can this be an advantage(sponsored accomodation )in my applications for a job there in UAE?

    I’m also a licensed CE but with a very low compensation considering already my years in service, I only make Php. 9,600.00 and could hardly make things right for me and my wife with our two kids.

    It was always in my dreams to work in the UAE ever since my brother got there four years ago. I know my chances are slim compared to him with a consultacy firm experience in Makati, but as you have always stated in your posts, ” kung may malakas na determinasyon may tagumpay” maybe this could help me intesify more my job hunting. Please advise me more because I think Im not still very serious about my job hunting. (kumpleto na po documents ko including UAE stamped credentials).

    Maraming Salamat at Merry Christmas na rin po!

    Hi Admin,

    I applied for an ‘accountant’ job in Dubai. The offer is 3000 Dirhams+accomodation+meals+transportation.

    My salary right now here in Pinas is Php 50,000 monthly (gross).

    I am asking for 6000 Dirhams sana but the interviewer said that the 3K is the maximum that they can offer for a newbie like me. But he said I will be evaluated after 6 months then that’s the time I can get an increase.

    Can you help me? is the 3000 Dirhams acceptable for an accountant?

    Your insights will help me a lot.

    Thanks in advance for your responses

    hello!

    My daughter was born out of wedlock, his father is currently working in Dubai as a Sales Manager in some retail company with a salary of 60,000 pesos above. He was there for almost 3 years. He was first hired as a Sales Representative and just got promoted this year. I was expecting that he could get his leave for his second vacation here in the Philippines but due to his promotions, he could’t. I’m afraid he will be needing to stay there for another year without a vacation. Now I’m thinking if I will be allowed to enter dubai,can we live or stay together in one room?. I was also thinking if what kind of visa is applicable with my situation. I heard sponsorships on visa was not very easy in dubai. Nways, we also want to get married as soon as I get there. And how long will it takes for proceesing of documents to bring our daughter after the marriage?

    Need an urgent reply for this.

    Thank you very much in advance. God Bless!

    • Shy De La Cruz said

      Para ka makapunta ng Dubai, kung may Company na maghire sayo at mag grant ng working visa for you, swerte mo kasi yon ang pinaka the best na solution but, if in case na wala you need to apply for a visit visa. Ndi pa din kayo makakapagpakasal agad2 kasi kung ganu kabagal ang process for lisensya ng marriage sa Pinas mas mabagal pa dito sa Dubai, you can stay together ng magiging asawa mo pero you have to be very careful. Madami naman mga gumagawa nyan d2 pero pra sa ikakapanatag ng loob mo at para makuha mo ang anak mo with you kailangan nyo magpakasal.

    I am directly hired by a furniture company in Dubai, my employment visa was already realesed but it still has to be authenticated by our consulate. It’s already been 3weeks but they still have not sent me the visa.

    Hi! I just want to ask how long does it take for an employemnt visa to get authentication from our consulate in Dubai? My visa was already released 3weeks back and the HR officer said that it still needs to be attested, but until now i still don’t have the visa.

    Hi,

    I’m a graphic designer. Been one for almost 15 years already, mostly in the role of Art Director. The last time I worked in a corporate setting was in 2004. Since then, I’ve been doing freelance graphic design. Lately, I’ve been thinking of looking for work abroad. The biggest problem for me is that I am just a college undergraduate. However my portfolio and experience I believe, more than compensates for that. Still, considering that a TOR or DIPLOMA is apparently a must, what do you think are my chances of landing a job in Dubai without these documents? I am willing to submit myself to any kind of graphic design exams if needed.

    Hope to get a reply regarding this matter.

    Thank you very much.

    I arrived in Deira Dubai last January 20. Job hunting is really sacrifice. You need to have enough budget for foods, transpo and application expenses. Flat rates are so expensive, parang pambayad na sa monthly house amortization sa pinas. Maaga rin yung tag-init so tiyagaan lang talaga. I would suggest you apply for agencies sa pinas that offer jobs here. Dapat din ay may kamag-anak ka or mga kaibigan who will guide you… or else, mahihirapan ka… It’s really a risk. In my interviews, mababa ang offer nila, maybe because of current world financial crisis. Hopefully makahanap ako ng magandang offer soon. 2 months visa nakuha ko. Sana di ko ma-experience mag-exit. Kababayans, tiyaga lang talaga at lakas ng loob kailangan natin to survive here.

  250. DUDUT said

    Update ko lang kayo… Headhunters/agencies here in dubai are now charging applicants service fee from 100aed to 400 aed, balasubas yung al qabas agency kasi parang modus operandi at sobrang mahal.

  251. Grace said

    hi dudut! nagsisisi ako bakit ngayon ko lang naencounter tong message mo… I was in their office( Al Qabas ) this morning and was interviewed by a woman named Sabina. After asking me a few questions,she asked me to fill-out a form and required me to pay 100aed for the process. Medyo nagulat ako kasi di naman ako nainform na meron nito when I called yesterday to inquire about the openings which were advertised in Gulf News. I asked her why was she charging me for these kinds of services when they are actually a manpower agency, they should ask payment from the private companies not applicants. She told me that they are not a manpower agency, they are the company mismo na naghahire…so medyo pinaikot nya ko dito!

    I asked her if there is a guarantee na magkakatrabaho ako.. she answered “yes, in three days.” they will call me daw and they will accompany me to the manager who will go through my documents(attested TOR/Diploma…etc) in Dubai Free Zone. hmmmmm. she was intentionally really nice to me. because the position they offered me was very suitable; because it’s really hard to find a job evenif I’m on husband’s visa at sayang naman ang pagpunta ko dun from Dubai…mga kababayan, ako po ay nagbayad ng 100aed or more or less 1300 php. Pagkatapos kong magmunimuni sa mga pangyayari, these are some things I realized:

    1.) Lahat kaya ng magbabayad ng 100aed ang garantisadong may trabaho?! I doubt!
    2.) Someone will accompany me to the manager who will review my docs. E paano kung may problema sa docs ko…guaranteed job ba yun?
    3.) She even specified the basic salar+accomodation+transpo but I went home without signing an offer letter. Definitely not a good sign!
    4.) When I asked for a receipt all she gave me was a card with my application ref no on it. So wala akong proof na nagbayad ako. Stupid!
    5.) She told me they are not an agency but the company mismo who looks for people who could fill-in the positions for their companies..parang Group po. Their name? Al Qabas Int’l EMPLOYMENT & MANAGEMENT CONSULTANCY! Stupid 2x!
    6.) Basically sa mga pangyayaring naganap ay si ms sabina ang naghire sakin diba? She told me she’s customer service person. Is she even in the right position to just hire someone?!

    So mukang tama si kuya dudut…parang modus operandi nga ito… kuya dudut ano po ang mangyayari after this? Will they really call me? May mga nagkakawork ba talaga through them? BAkit sabi nyo po 400aed? May iba pang babayaran?

    MGA KABAYAN…PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF MY EXPERIENCE, AL QABAS HAS A LOT OF JOB ADS IN GULF NEWS SO INGAT PO TAYO. I WILL TRY TO GET ALONG WITH THEIR PROCESS PARA LANG DI MASAYANG BINAYAD KO. I WILL POST ANOTHER COMMENT AFTER THAT.

    • Rainne said

      Hi Joanne! Im taking your side. Tama ka, ikaw ang asawa, legal na asawa. And whatever ang sabihin nung kabit ng asawa mo, dont get affeced. You are very right in all aspects. At nasa sayo ang anak nyo, that’s all that matters. But I uggest na i-push through mo yung pagrereport and pagsasampa ng kaso para you get even with them. Mapapauwi na sila dito, and who knows, you might get a higher monthly allowance pa… panalo ka sa kaso na to at all aspects. Be strong. Dont give u on them. Show them that you are above the two of them. Makamundong pagnanasa lang ang habol nung dalawang yun, since nagawa na nila, tuluyan mo na din. para maganda ang ganti mo. o diba, panalo ka, baka magmakaawa pa sayo yang mga yan…. at lelast pinahirapan mo din ang buhay nila.. remember, pamilya mo ang sinira nila. both of them should get what it’s worth….okay….

    Mga kababayan sa Dubai,

    I am an Engineer based in Canada but as of now recession din dito so I decided to apply in Dubai. I have a job offer in an aluminum smelting plant however I don’t know kung tatangapin ko because I don’t know where to find a place to live. Can anyone tell me how much is the one bedroom apartment? I made some research at nakita ko its about 15,000 to 30,000 DHS for a one bedroom apartment ganito ba talaga o may mas mura pa dito. The company only gives me 9500DHS housing allowance, is this enough? Madali ba makakita ng apartment dyan. I am also willing to share apartment as long as I have my own room sa palagay nyo makakakita kaya ako ng room for rent amongst our kababayan? Please anyone give me some advice, my email is donray65@yahoo.com

  259. dudut said

    I feel sad sa mga kababayan ko na sobrang hirap ang dinadanas dito sa dubai. Mainit. Magastos. Malungkot… etc… I know that all of these sacrifices ay para sa pamilya natin sa pinas. Just be strong kabayan and always ask for “HIS” guidance… I know na malalampasan din natin mga hardships…
    To GRACE… nagbayad ka pala ng 100aed. Sayang din nun. Pang-grocery pa yun. Kunyari, al qabas will call you back for final interview, then magbabayad ka pa ng extra 300aed for sure job… They are taking advantage of the recession. Ang laki ng kinikita nila sa mga pobreng applicants. Sana lang, makarma sila ng maaga!!!
    Thanks God! Nagbunga din ang jobhunting ko. I have a job now as Customer Service Executive in one of telecommunications company in Dubai media city with fair salary offer. I landed job not thru abusive agencies but directly to the company’s websites sa career section. Yun na lang gawin nyo. Sa mga katulad kong call center agents, i can help you so we can be in the same company. Just leave msg on how i can contact you. I’ll give you details how to submit your cv’s and schedule you for interview. Pinay din yung nasa HR so i’ll do my best to assist you…

    • Shy De La Cruz said

      Miss Joan, nakakalungkot naman ang situation mo. Pero gaya ng sabi mo God is everywahere at anuman ang ginagawa ng asawa mo sayo may karampatang parusa yon sa kanya pagdating ng araw, who knows diba, si Lord ang gaganti para sayo.
      Dito sa Dubai, maraming tukso dito, depende sa tao kung pano ihahandle ang situation. Madami mga Pilipina dito na kapit sa patalim, nagiging makasarili. 7th month ko palang dito pero napakadumi ng ibang kababayan dito babae at lalaki walang pinagkaiba. Anyway, they have their own reasons maybe, but, we have choices depende nalang kung alin ang pipiliin. God bless you Joan, God will always be with you.

Im currently earning Dhs.8000 but as most are aware you have to earn atleast Dhs.10000 to get a loan these days. My father suffered a stroke and is currently in the hospital.

    Thanks kabayan for the information! I’m a nurse here in Pinas; with the hiring of foreign nurses in the US becoming less, I’ve considered Dubai to be my new target point now for job hunting. Ang kinakatakot ko lang is that some of my colleagues used the “visit visa style” in searching for opportunities there in Dubai but sadly they ended up jobless and have to come back home here in Pinas due to dwindling financial resource and expiring visa. I still hope that opportunities for foreign nurses in Dubai isn’t affected by the global crisis like other cities or countries.

    Hi everyone!!!

    I read every message in this site and I found it informative.

    I am already here in Dubai for more than six months at kagaya ng iba nating kababayan e nagbakasakali para sa magandang future. Ang advantage ko lang is that I’m a husband visa.

    Mahabang kwento pero ang pagpunta dito sa dubai ay isang malaking desisyon na you need to think not only twice or even thrice but million of times. Kasi para sakin swertehan lang ang buhay dito. Maswerte yung mga kababayan natin ng nakakakita ng magandang trabaho at malaking sweldo but sad to say na marami rin ang hindi. Ilan narin sa mga kababayan natin ang nakausap ko na nagsasabi na magugustuhan mo daw ang dubai kapag may work kana and I pray na sana nga mangyari yun.

    Well, I just want to stay here because I want to be with my husband pero kahit may work nako dito di ko parin feel yung sinsabi ng iba na magugustuhan ko ang dubai. Ibang iba parin pag nasa sarili kang bansa lalo na kung may work ka naman sa pilipinas and ok rin naman yung sweldo better I think to just stay there and don’t take the risk of sacrificing your job para sa walang kasiguruhang life dito sa dubai.

    But if you really want to try and find your luck here kailangan matatag ang loob mo, masipag kang mag apply at malakas ang determinasyon. Isama mo narin yung may pera ka para sa allowance mo habang di kapa nakakakita ng work.

    Good luck to all of us and if you decided to went here in dubai sana magkita kita tayo. Kasi I love walking in the street of Dubai lalo na pag may nakikita akong Kababayan na marunong kumilala ng kapwa kababayan.

    I am kinda disappointed yet feelin’ blessed.My husband just flown to Kuwait for a project. Remember my last post na willing kaming mag give up para lng magkasama kami. di pa din siguro malakas loob namin para makipagsapalaran sa Dubai. Nagdecide kami na accept nlng yong project nila sa Kuwat kaya eto naiwan ulit ako dito Pinas. Wla pa din kaming baby kaya hirap mag isa. Pray ko nalang na sana 1 of these days pwede din niya ako invite dun para sama ulit kami. Thanks for the advise Ms. Nheldz Vida. Sayang di na tayo magkikita dyan.Goodluck na lng po sa inyo dyan!

    Hi! This forum is very helpful. I am planning to go to Dubai, nakapagprocess na ko ng documents ko for authentication sa ched, malacanang at dfa except for uae embassy, way back 1995. I inquired sa embassy and sabi nila expired na yung docs ko. 2008-2009 na tinatanggap nila so i have to start again from scratch, saklap naman.

And tama ba na huwag magdala ng printout nr cv? At what point in our journey to dubai puwedeng makita yun or maconfiscate? Im totally clueless kasi yung mga kilala ko na nasa dubai na hindi masyadong helpful sa pagbibigay ng info regarding the culture, lifestyle in uae.

    Hi everyone,

    Ive read most of the posts here and I can say that a lot of people are really willing to take the risk to work in Dubai. As long as you have the skills ( its very improtant) at least computer skills and good english you will surely find a good job. Just one piece of advice especially for girls, never be tempted to take what others have to offer you especially if you are on a visit visa because it may mean something you have to return in kind or money. How others will treat you depends on how you show yourselves to them so it is always important to show professionalism. And if you are on doubt whether you can land a job there or not, if you have the skills i mentioned, you can definitely get one. Trust me,Ive been there and i will be coming back. See yah.

I did a of blogging for dummies over on one of the CPA Marketing forums and I believed it was too simple for them, but the quantity of emails I got asking questions just like what you addressed was unbelievable. As young people today we have grown up with computers, but it’s easy to forget that even people just a a couple of years older have not! Really good post! :)

      yezze.mas maganda kung mag hahanap ka ng mga agencies jan sa atin sa Pinas rather than going here as visit visa..mas maganda kung walang placement fee, may mga ganung agency namn depende sa employer..sa ngayun kasi mahirap sumugal lalo na crisis..or kung mga mga kaibigan namn kayu dito sa dubai ipapasa nyo nalang resume nyo.

  303. bez said

    halu everyone. just want to share you my story.

    I had my visit in Abu dhabi last year, July 17, 2008. I’m a registered Nurse here in the Philippines and nangarap na maging nurse din sana sa UAE. But then, since matigas ang ulo at hindi naniwala sa mga uncle ko na need ng 2 years na experience to qualify as an RN in UAE, ayan sumugod ako at nag job hunt. August 7, 2008, I passed by one agency. They asked me to prepare all my documents, ipa translate ko na daw ang mga docu ko and antay nalang ng call for medical poz pina sign na ko ng contract. WOW sabi ko..eto na ba ang swerte na hinahanap ko NURSE pa..malaki ang offer at government hospital pa..eh di go naman ako..after 2 weeks they called me up just to tell me that they are not allowed pala to process visa of a nurse..eh di nagpanic nako..1 month nlang mag expire na visa ko..haaay sayang ang two weeks na natengga ako ng pag apply..so balik na naman ako sa job hunting. Super hot pa naman..z August yun eh. Abu dhabi city na libot ko yan, meron naman isa tumawag sakin Dental assistant ang position. Sabi ng uncle ko.patusin ko na daw para hindi ako mag exit. Pero naman..ang offer 1800 dhs..to think abu dhabi city pa yun..taas ng cost of living. so sabi ko hanap pa ko ng iba.

    August 23, 2008, nagtawag sakin ang isang hospital sa Al Ain for interview. So balik ako ng al ain ngayon, Ok naman ang interview. tawagan daw ako after 3 days. Tapos tinawagan na nila ako after 2 days, salamat sabi ko hindi na ata ako mkakapag exit. Nag start na ako sa kanila ng August 27, Nurse cum secretary cum receptionist cum kung anuh anuh pa ang work. After 1 week nag offer na cla. Salary 1500 lahat lahat na yun. So sabi ko sige lang. bka naman kako mag increase after few months.Tapos ayun start nako. pero wala pa din empoloyment visa di pa na release kaya nakapag exit tuloy ako sa Kish. 10 days din ako dun. Working visa na din ang inantay ko.Clerk ang visa ko pero sa clinic ako as assistant.Ok naman ang work yun nga lang mababa talaga ang sahod. at wala pa ako increase nun. Pero mababait naman ang co employee ko. Para ngang philippine hospital dun sa amin kasi puro pinay ang nag work.

    Ayun After 1 years and 3 months. Eto ako ngayon sa Pinas on annual leave lang sana pero nag kasakit ang mother ko..so nag decide na muna kami na huwag nlang muna balik dun so I can look after my mother. Hay. ewan ko. Nag pass lang ako resignation trough fax. Bka nagalit na ang employer sakin. Bhala na.

    so ayun sa mga nag iisip na mkapunta ng UAE. Maganda kung sa maganda ang emirates, hindi ganun kagulo most especially sa prov ng al ain. the best dun. yun nga lang kung pupunta kayo. wag summer July, august sept, tsaka wag nyo itaon na ramadan, less man kasi working hours nila pag ganun. Sa mga NURSES na katulad ko. Ok naman may work tlaga for us dun, basta make sure na qualified ka na magkalicense dun. Dapat may experience dito 2-3 years man lang. Coz if not. Mag end up tayo na secretary.Kaya ako if ever na makabalik ako ng UAE mag experience na muna ako dito at mag take na muna ng HAAD exam para ready na.

    Ayun ang haba po ng post ko. Salamat. God Bless sating mga aspiring OFWs. By the way nahirapan pala ko jan sa immigration natin pag alis before. 21 years old palang kasi ako nun. Kaya mga bata. Mag pa 22 na muna tayo..hehehe..cge po.. salamat uli ng marami.

  304. hi im nanet and planning to go to dubai this coming year using tourist visa?..but there are hesitation because i have a job here in philippines.,please give me some views on how to get a good job in dubai?

    • blue said

      hindi mo kasi sinabi sa post mo kung ano position ang para sayu.. crisis talaga dito sa uae..kung kumikita ka ng above 25k sa pinas..mas maganda kung mag stay ka muna jan sa atin..mahirap mag hanap ng trabaho ngayun dito..madali ka makakakita pero hindi sapat yung sahod na maibibigay sayu lalo na kung wala ka pa experience magtrabaho sa labas ng pinas..mas mabuting gawin mo siguro kung mag aaply ka through our local agencies kesa sumugal ng visit visa..tulad ng sinabi ni ken kung may kaibikan ka sa dubai na pedeng tumulong sayu na maghanap ng trabaho habang nasa pinas ka mas ok siguro yun..although iissuehan ka ng magiging employer mo ng visit visa, mabilis nalang yun i-apply ng residence visa,,di pa ikaw ang gumastos.

    I have a few questions but though some previous posts have already enlighten some of those. I am planning for a visit visa by end of March this year or first week of April.

Is it possible for me to land a job in Dubai or to anywhere in UAE so long as I have all the documents needed and is the climate of this months still tolerable to be in the streets looking for a job. Please let me know. Any replies or information the soonest will be very much appreciated.

    Hello guys,

    I just wanted to share with you about what really Dubai is,,..//..It is very fantastic and people would think back home that everyone here in Dubai are having all the pleasure and financially stable whilst what I experinced is that very opposite to what they thought about. i have been here in Dubai for 6 years now and been working with around 5 companies already if I ma not mistaken. Now I worked for the government sector and earning around dhs10,000 a month but believe me or not guys, I am totally broke! I haven’t got any savings though I have some businesses running back home and they are not properly handled. It is so difficult really when we start thinking about banks,,…because when u get a huge salary then the bank will tempt u for a bank loan and for a credit cards..so if I were you guys, be happy of what’s within you and be satisfied for what you are earning and don’t and never ever take any bank loans or any credits cards in Dubai because you will end up nothing! Just plainly working for your loans and credit cards.

    But it every trials in ourlives, we never think that it is already the end of the world. If that room that you are in is dark, then open the window so that the sunlight will shine upon that room or open another door maybe that other door is full of bright. We just have to take any chances when we are here in Dubai as long as we never deprive other people’s right and we never put ourselves into the darkness just for money coz money or any material thing in this world is really nothing because when we die, we can not take any of those. the most important thing is our soul as we all know that we are just temporary here in this beautiful planet and sooner or later we will be departed to where we really belong.

    To make the story short, just have jesus christ in our heart and soul and within us because I experienced that whenever we have god in our lives, we will be filled with brightness and happiness. Just ask god to take your wheel as you can’t really drive safely just by yourself. Temptations in Dubai is really high. people here will forget what really is the purpose and why we are here! they should always put this in their minds that we are here for our families,to lift them up from poverty! because what I have observed is that even married here they are having an affear with the other guy and getting into a relationship though they are married back home and they started turning their back from thier families. I just get shock when I met someone though she’s married and have 2 kids but she’s still looking up for any relationship. I just can’t belive this of what was going on here..

    Anyhow, if anyone would like to earn extra income for like dhs10,000 a month or even more. Just leave me a msg or contact me for a free business and health seminar. We can do a household seminar or product demo anywhere in the UAE. I am sharing this to you becuase this helped me a lot to recover from debts to finacial freedom.

    God bless us all.

    Hi mga kabayan. Napansin ko lang na parang lahat kayo ay gustong magpunta sa Dubai. Maganda ang Dubai kung ang salary ay nasa range ng 8K pataas. Why not try Saudi Arabia or Qatar. D2 sa KSA, di na rin sila gaanong mahigpit. kung ang bedspacer sa Dubai ay 500 to 800, d2 ay malaking room na yun plus toilet. Well payo ko lang sa mga starters, try nyo muna ang KSA, Qatar or Kuwait kung Middle East ang target nyo. Pag nakakuha na kayo ng magandang experience at competitive na kayo, saka kayo mag try sa Dubai. just my 2 cents….

    Hello,

    Securing a Job in Dubai, whether in Engineering, Nursing or any other career field for that matter, is not as simple as forwarding your resume to ‘n’ number of Recruiting Agencies in Dubai. It IS an important part, however, I suggest a more proactive role if you really want to secure your DREAM Dubai job.

    Here are some other important areas to cover:

    1) Send your Resume to the Human Resources Department of some of the TOP companies in your career field.

    2) Follow some important recruiters on Twitter and Facebook.

    3) Browse some top local “Jobs Available” sections of classified sites & newspapers.

    4) Browse the job vacancy pages of companies and recruiters.

    5) Browse some Dubai Jobs related blogs.

    All this is doable & will surely put you in the lead to secure your Dream Job.

    Hope this helps,
    Shabbir K.
