If you know someone whose planning to buy a tourist visa to look for a job in Dubai please warn them. I have nothing against Dubai, but the number of Filipinos here looking for a job is a big disappointment. Can you imagine spending approximately $2000 just to look for a job? And what landing a job with less than $250 salary a month. If you want to work in Dubai please go to a credible recruitment agency. Dubai is an ideal place to work, the crime rate is very low. But moral crimes committed by Pinoys through selling a visit visa is rising. Why moral crime? You promise a poor individual that it is easy to look for a job, where there is no job at all! Its simply a form of illegal recruitment the only difference is the victim leaves the country.


But for those of you who wants pleasure why not try visiting Dubai.

I definately agree... it's a gamble looking for a job in dubai ... you have to have contacts and / or rep*table agency backing you up ...
for those people who wants to gamble make sure you have "Money" to spare
Good luck people ... "the grass is not always greener on the other side"

Yup, based on my experience its really tough here in dubai. I'm currently working for a contracting company, pero before I landed this job, men ang hirap.

2 months ako stay with my cousin then nag exit and reentry.

Word of advice: if you want to go here make sure your field is in Engineering or health or medical courses. yan ang in dito

Marami pumupunta dito commerce grad or IT grads kaso the demand for this kind of professionals are not that high.

Also, it would be to your advantage if may relatives ka dito to support you. magastos dito.

Goodluck!

I'm also thinking about trying to work in dubai, just for experience, my family has a great business here but I really want to go see the world and I'm not getting any younger too.

My friend already left for dubai yesterday, he got a permanent work in a bank, though he started applying only about a month later than I did, so I envied him when he left, but I gave him a great farewell inuman in embassy last friday night.

autodesk, meron ba dyan trabaho for a law undergrad?

A friend of mine went to Dubai late last year, around November I think. He was convinced by his client that there a lot of jobs waiting in Dubai, so there he went. But to his dismay there was no job waiting for him as promised. Palusot pa yung kilala nya na kaso ang tagal daw nyang dumating nakuha na ng iba ung trabaho. So hanap sya kaso ang dami namang competition lalo na daw ug mga Pakistani at mga taga Bangladesh na sumusulot ng trabaho by asking salaries half of what Filipinos are asking. Kaya balik Pinas na siya kasi expired na visa nya. Ang masakit, wala na siyang nakuhang trabaho, naibenta pa nila ang bahay nila, nagkanda-utang-utang pa. I really felt sorry for my friend.

Bro, my advice, if u have a job in the phil. try to get a leave of absence for at least a month, then punta ka dito to see if u can land a much better job here. Wag ka magresign, para u have a fall back. To be honest mahirap maghanap ngayon work dito its because of the competition from other foreign nationals, in particular indians and pakistanis.

Goodluck bro, and when ur here, look me up, baka may maitulong :hypocritesmiley:

yup, sad reality dito yan. as I said, when u come here make sure handa ka humarap sa sang katutak na struggles. mahirap dito, but in a way maganda sya as training ground if u hve plans to jump to other countries. sa hirap ksi na dadaanan mo dito, magiging handa ka na sa anu mang hirap that other countries will smack into your face.

Dami mag reresign samin, kahit na yung mga matagal na (5 or more years sa company) kasi supposedly meron na doon work na mga 45k a month, pero inisip ko eh mahal rin ata expenses doon diba? So kung mag increase ng half or 1/3 ang salary nila dito eh worth it pa ba yung pag trabaho doon... Mga pamilyadong peeps pa yun.

Ganun talga yun dun??

Plano ko pa naman pumunta, Ph98,000 for a tourist visa. My cousin nag bayad siya ng 70K baka maka punta na siya this March....

Hirap ba talaga ang trabaho pagka ganun sa Dubai? Any firsthand experrience?

Bro, as I said before, if your field is in IT or commerce, I suggest not to go here, kasi ang babagsakan lang is waiter. If you want to make a mark here, your field should be in engineering(civil,mech,electrical) or architecture. Boom kasi ang contruction and engineering services dito.

saka nga pala bro, ingat ka sa immigration dyan sa pinas. If Visit visa ang dala mo papunta dito, minsan nang hihingi lagay yang mga p*tang inang immigration agents sa NAIA. madami tayong kabayan na nagbigay nang suhol (5,000 pesos) para makalusot lang. Ingat bro

well depende yun, 45K is the whole package na ba?ask if may accomodation or transpo allowance. Staying in dubai is quite expensive, para na rin western countries ang standard of living.

Worth naman ang pagpunta dito for as long as may demand sa profession nyo dito. Saka swertihan din talaga. Naway when you do get here, I hope u guys can struck pot of gold.

How much ba Airfare going to Dubai? is it cheaper if you will purchase it sa dubai rather than sa pinas?

Im still 50-50 with my decision of going ti Dubai but i have a cousin kasi that will sponsor my Visit Visa for 2 to 3 mos. I might stay at his place muna but i dont want to be a burden to him if ever wala agad ako makuhang work. I have other friends naman na andun na din who is willing to accomodate me maybe for few days or week.
Tulungan naman talaga mga pinoy dun specialy pag kamag anak or close friend mo.

Sa ngayon Tapos na documents ko for authentication. For pick up ko nalang sa DFA early next week.

I worked for a multinational company for 10 years and sa Finance Department ako. According to my cousin in Demand din sa Dubai ang Accounting and Finance. So i might consider going to Dubai din talaga. I sent him aslo my CV muna para ma recommend din nya ako sa mga contacts nya. I just hope that i can get a good job sa Dubai.

Sir Alucard if ever you have other tips just let us know. thanks Bro! Mabuhay ang Pinoy!

mahirap talga dito sa dubai.. ako nga, 5 x na nag exit para mairenew yung visa ko.. kahit nandito yung father ko, ang hirap parin.. pero once na maka chamba ka sa trabaho, tuloy tuloy na.. then maybe after some years, madali nalang.. tiyagaan lang talga at kelangan malakas ang loob.

it's generally more difficult to land a job in dubai if you're male unless you're a nurse or an IT expert, or if you're a muslim and can drive...but for those people who've paid lumps of money already and are more likely to go in the near future, one option is to apply in abu dhabi (uae's capital)or al ain on the relevant field/profession.taxi fare is cheaper (2.50 AED,plug down rate) plus you'll have much tranquil mornings...ehem...just make sure all your documents are authenticated by the UAE Embassy in Makati...as salamalaikom!

Ay naku! Huwag kayong masyadong magpapaniwala sa mga nagsasabi na mahirap makakita ng trabaho sa Dubai… ‘Yun lang ‘yong mga talagang nahihirapan… at siyempre, kung dadagsa pa ang mga pupuntang Pinoy sa Dubai eh di lalaki pa ang kumpetensiya!?! :P

Not all what happens to Pedro will happens to Juan… simply because Juan is entirely a different person from Pedro kahit pareho pa sila ng kursong tinapos… B)

Life is struggling and full of adventures… you are not experiencing life if you are not willing to take the risk! As they say, no man had been successful without taking the risk… :goatee:

It can be defined in simple equation:

LIFE = (RISK) + (TAKING THE RISK) X (ADVENTURES)

If TAKING THE RISK < RISK then SUCCESSFUL RATE would be less than 100%
As you increase the RISK + TAKING THE RISK, the SUCCESSFUL RATE is also increasing; although the FAILURE RATE is also proportionally increasing…

but hey, that is the definition of LIFE… :hypocritesmiley:
