Hello,

I am looking for advice on the costs of living in Dubai from housing rent (3 bedrooms), schooling (2 children under 12 years old), car costs, utility bills etc.

The reason I ask is that I have been offered £60k per annum and would like to know if I could comfortably live and save a few quid from the salary i've been offered.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Whilst waiting a reply, If you do a "search" you will find this subject was answered in much detail quite recently (by "Wayne"?)

Hello, very expensive here im afraid. Who are you starting work for? 60k sounds very familiar?

Housing - Cheapest in Dubai 3 bedroom will cost you around 23k to 30k - One cheque

Schooling per child - Between 3500k and 6500k per year. Very expensive i pay 6300 per year for one child. Also getting into a school is very difficult. Contact me direct for more advice.

Bils -DEWA - Electric & Water - Between 150 to 300 a month depending on AC use and water use ie watering thr grass for example. Again not cheap.

All these are in pounds per year apart from the DEWA.

Hope this helps.
