Working in the lower Gulf Region
The economy in the UAE and Qatar depends on foreign migrant workers. At not less than 85%, the emirate Dubai has the highest share of "expats" among the population. The majority of these are unskilled workers from South East Asia, employed in the construction or service industry. In many areas such as the banking and IT sectors, there are highly qualified employees as well. Opportunities for German citizens arise primarily for skilled workers with a university degree. The paid salaries are higher than in Germany as no taxes are incurred. Yet, it has to be noted that the cost of living, notably rent and tuition, are significantly higher than in Germany. Here you can find a comparison of the cost of living.
