    International Relocation to Dubai with Sunset Moving

    Moving to another country is a big step. Are you ready to take it? If so, let Sunset Moving guide you through the process. If you are considering moving to Dubai for business or personal reasons, Sunset Moving is the best company to help you with your relocation. Our team of experts have had vast experience in residential and corporate moving to the United Arab Emirates.

    Before you start packing your bags, it is important to get all the information needed for your relocation. First of all, you should get acquainted with the city you are about to start calling home. For that reason, we at Sunset Moving have compiled a quick guide to Dubai.

    The Climate

    Dubai is home to a hot desert climate. This means that the city experiences extremely hot summers with high levels of humidity and a lot of wind. The average high summer temperatures revolve around 106 degrees. Winters are quite warm as well. The average high temperature during winter is 75 degrees. This means that once you move to Dubai, going to the beach will likely become an everyday activity. Each year, the city sees a little less than 4 inches of rain. If you are moving to Dubai from a colder area of the United States, keep in mind that the weather might take some getting used to.

    Places to Live

    Dubai is a large city. Given its size, finding the right neighborhood for yourself might prove to be challenging. Besides, what constitutes the perfect neighborhood depends greatly on your personal preferences. For this reason, we would recommend creating a list of criteria that you find the most important, for example, your budget, proximity to schools and workplace, walkability, nightlife, etc. After you have decided what it is exactly that you want, it is time to take a look at the city’s different areas. We at Sunset Moving encourage you to visit Dubai at least once before moving, as it is the only way of truly experiencing what the city is like. If you have already done that, we would like to refresh your memory with this short list of neighborhoods we found the most livable:

    • Palm Jumeirah. This is one of the man-made islands in Dubai, shaped like a palm. It is home to luxurious villas, lavish hotels, and royal resorts. It is connected to the mainland via a monorail. It has everything its residents might need. Needless to say, it is far from cheap.
    • Dubai Marina. This neighborhood has over the years become the prime example of the luxurious Dubai life. It is perfect for those in search of a refined, classy lifestyle, with homes in close proximity to elegant shops and posh cafes.
    • Business Bay. The commercial center of the city, this neighborhood is designed to satisfy all needs of the business community. Living here means being a walking distance from your workplace and being able to focus on your career with no distractions.
    • Arabian Ranches. If you are seeking to avoid the hustle and bustle of the big city, the Ranches are the perfect choice for you. This is a gated community that offers a luxurious lifestyle with numerous restaurants, shops, and golf courts.
    • Deira. One of the rare neighborhoods in Dubai that offers the old rustic charm, this area was once considered the commercial hub of the city. While it lost a lot of its significance, it is a lot more affordable than the aforementioned neighborhoods.

    People of Dubai

    Dubai is home to 2.5 million people. Perhaps not surprisingly, more than 80 per cent of its residents are expatriates of various generations, while only around 15 per cent are UAE nationals. Most of the expatriate population is comprised of Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, and Filipinos.

    The national and official language is Arabic, with the Gulf dialect being most widely used. English is the most common second language, while a significant number of the population speak Malayalam, Hindi-Urdu, Persian, Bengali, Tulu, Tagalog, and Chinese.

    The official religion of the whole United Arab Emirates is Islam. All Muslim mosques in Dubai are managed by Awqaf, or the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department. The laws against racism, religious extremism, and religious hatred are very strict. In addition, Dubai is home to a significant number of Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, and Buddhists.

    Moving to Dubai

    Are you ready to move to Dubai? If so, there is only one thing left to do. Get all the required paperwork. Let us be honest – moving to Dubai involves a lot of paperwork. While information about how to obtain a visa or a residency permit in the United Arab Emirates can be found all over the internet, the only absolutely reliable source is the embassy. In order to learn more about the immigration policies of the United Arab Emirates, visit the official website of the country’s embassy in Washington D.C.
