I have an offer from a local recruitment agency but am also skeptical. Need more info about the living conditions of Pinoys in Dubai.

I'm in Dubai for almost five months now. Tulad ng karamihan sumugal din ako.. I don't have the slightest idea gano kahirap kumuha ng work here till I came, adminsitrative position pa hanap ko. I was on a Visit Visa then, pero ang lamang ko lang nandito brother ko and his family who supported me noong jobless ako. It took 38 days bago ako mgkawork. Swerte ko lang kasi I got the job I want (more or less, sa Pinas kasi sa HR ako, dito pure recruitment), UK-based company, nakapagnegotiate for good salary and benefits package kahit wala akong gulf experience, I was given a residence visa before my Visit Visa expired, and open contract, it may be terminated by either party by giving four weeks written notice. So I can leave the company anytime I want (incase a better opportunity comes), they can fire me anytime they want - walang ban... And the best part is, sobrang ok ang boss ko... She recommended me for regularization after 3 months and was given an increase and pasok na ako sa commission/bonus scheme ng company.

Whenever a friend or a former colleague ask me if ok dito, sinasabi ko ang totoong condition ng mga pinoy dito. Mahirap makakuha ng work, high cost of living, the Kish story, etc etc etc... nasa kanila na if they still want to go. Sabi ko pray hard and ask for sign if para dito ka ba o sa Pinas ok ka na... Basta lang mga pare at mare, dapat po you have enough experience before ka pumunta dito.




Thanks for this pare. Actually am planning na to go there and sumugal din ng pera kong naitabi. My company is in a limbo right now and its realy hard for me to start over again with a low salary. Second, am planning to get married na next year and masisira yung budget ko if push comes to shove. Am thinking na magsugal ng pera pagpunta dun at maghanap ng work so that i can get myself on track. Its really painstaking to do this specially kung self supporting ka. I have so may friends in there from our company and they are having somewhat good there. Ang dami siguro mga 30 sila dun and puro visit visa's nga. Nageexit sa iran pag expired na visa. Ang hirap isipin pero Fortune favors the brave nga siguro. I hope lang na my Fate will lead me to somewhere i should be. I love this country but this country never loves us back. Di ko alam mangyayari but i hope it will come into my way.

mga bro. swertihan lang talaga ang pagiging ofw esp sa middle east pero imho tho di pa ako nakapunta sa dubai may mga kilala ako dito seems much better coz more "open" than saudi. pwede alak but not in public, may simbahan.

sabi nga nung baguhan ako, dapat medyo halang ang bituka mo pag mag-ofw ka. lakasan lang ng loob. pag minalas, naka-crate ka pag-uwi sa naia

main problem - HOMESICK. yan ang binabayaran. HOMESICK vs. $

GO!

* patubo na kayo ng bigote at balbas... type ng mga arabo ang pilipini...makinis sarap beso-beso
hala lagoooot

makipag-holding hands ka pero wag ka magpapa-akbay. wag ka sasama mag-isa, baka sa disyerto ka dalhin. pag may naghitch sa iyo SADIK WER IS GO? ingat, esp pag baguhan, pero most probably "taxi" service lang habol nun...private cars na ginagawang prang-taxi, fix rate. huwag mapapraning dami namang mga kabayan doon na mababait at pwede din namang kababayan mo magpahamak sa iyo...

trust in yourself and in God.

madaming pinoy sa dubai na walang work, nag transit ako dun ng 3 days, lumabas ako sa terminal, kasi kasama sa ticket ko pwede mag stay 3 days. During day time nag-malling ako, shopping, napagod ako umupo muna ako sa bench dun sa gitna ng mall, may nakausap ako grupo ng pinoy, mga wala silang job at 1 or 2x lang sila nakakakain, kala nila kasi taga Dubai ako, nag ask sila sa akin kung may alam akong place na pwede sila mag work, kasi wala na silang pambayad ng renta, sabi ko nag transit lang ako ng 3 days, naawa ako, nilibre ko sila sa Mcdo dun, nakalungkot tinamad nako mamasyal for that day, buti nalang may nakilala akong russian prostitute sa bar ng hotel ko nung gabi, nakalimutan ko lungkot ko

luckily i was directly hired from the PH for a job here in DXB. been here for almost a year now, and this is what i can say about landing a job + expenses here in DXB...

common wage of the common man: 1500-3000dhs

EXPENSES:

accomodation:
bedspace: DXB - 400-700 per head / SHJ - 300-500 per head
room: DXB - 2000-4000dhs / SHJ - 1200-2500dhs
electricity/water: 20-100dhs/head or 400-2000dhs per house/flat/villa
lpg: 40-80dhs

transportation:
public bus: 1.50-5dhs
taxi: flag down of 2.50-3.50 dhs depends if you're coming from SHJ or DXB or depending on the time of the day
gasoline: 6dhs/gallon

food:
rice: 8dhs-15dhs / 5kgs depends if it's an Indian Basmati rice or Thailand white rice
pork: .5kgs 8-15dhs depending on the quality and cut
mcdonald's meal: 10-20dhs
water: 1dh for a small bottle and 3-8dhs for a 5 gallon jug depending on which emirate you are in...
coke: 1dh for a can, 3dhs for a 1.5L bottle and 4dhs for a 2.5L bottle...

job expectancy: don't waste a single day looking for a job, except if it's a friday or a holiday because of the competition as earlier mentioned on the previous posts. in my company alone(Aramex), since I'm the once tasked of checking the incoming faxes, we get a minimum of 100cv's everyday and our HR dept only calls 3% of the applicants 1-2x/month...

beer: 15-25dhs / can or bottle of beer

girls:
asians/russians: 100-200dhs
chinese: 10-40dhs

visit visa renewal: 1000-1400dhs, depends if you're going to exit in kish, qeshm or oman


current exchange rate: 13.47PHP - 1DH




***SHJ = Sharjah, the emirate next to DXB wherein most Filipinos also settle because of the lower accomodation fees...




note for the people who would like to go here: you can't sleep under the Maktoum bridge as what the movie "Dubai" narrates...

A Fairly accurate report of the conditions here in dubai.

But all hopefuls should be also aware that the competetion has risen to the extent that i personaly know people who still cant find a good job even after 3-4 months.

For people reading this thread, most infos are accurate

I've been here for the past 2 years. Every year competition is getting tougher and tougher and sadly wages are getting lower and lower.

Aside from work experience, lots a luck and determination ang kailangan if you want to survive as a visit visa here in dubai, lalu na ngayon na may ruling na that 2 exits nalang add to that kabayans who are below twenty five are no longer allowed to work.

Anyway, share ko din sa inyo.....I sponsored my sister and my cousin to come here in dubai. They arrive here march 16, 2007. I guess both of them were quite lucky cause after a couple of weeks both of them landed jobs. My sister now works for RAKBank and my cousin works for al ansari exchange.(yun nga lang resign kagad, lumipat sa al quoz para maging DCS).

Swertihan din talaga cause nun panahon ko, nag exit muna ko sa kish before I landed a job.

Sa mga pu2nta ng dubai at magvi2sit visa mas maganda pumunta ng Dec-March para malamig ngaun xe july mainit dto sa dubai sobra, summer xe dto july at august. Mahirap maghanap ng trabaho pag summwer umuuwi xe ang mga foreigner na may ari ng mala2king compny sa dubai at nagva2cation naman ang maya2mang arabo sa europe o kya sa america.

Nag visit visa rin ako swerte naman nkahanap agad ako ng trabaho.

Madali maghanap pag may experience n.

Kya advice ko lang mag-experience muna sa pinas bago pumunta ng dubai xe hanap tlaga dto ung may skills na.

Pero pag Engineer k pede kna In-demand tlaga engineeer dto.

Ako nga 2 weeks p lng ako dto nkahanap n agad ako ang bilis.

Ingat n lng sa immigration mahigpit cla ngaun lalo ng sa mga girl.

Un lang ang ipa2yo ko sa mga gustong mag visit visa
