Only for UAE Expats! 7 reasons why you’re not saving enough money in UAE

UAE
Want a comfortable retirement cushion? Don't do these. Some, if not all, expats have plans on how long they plan to stay in the UAE. Some are here for three years, some five, some even go for 20. And during those years, they plan to save enough cash to hopefully invest back in their homes for a nice retirement cushion. It all sounds good on paper but there's one problem - the plans often get sidelined. As some expats reach the deadline they have set themselves, they realise they haven't saved as much as they had hoped. It's a classic scene that many of us don't want to be in.

Expats Guide! Overstay fine can get fresh visa application rejected!

UAE
Approach GDRFA to seek their advice. My husband was employed in the UAE. Post-termination of his employment contract and the employment visa, he had overstayed in the UAE for 22 days, and was notified in respect of payment of overstay fines. When he arrived at the airport to travel back, he went to the immigration desk to pay the fine but was told that there were no fines against him. He asked the immigration official to double check but was asked to move on. My husband left the UAE after getting the exit stamp.

ATTENTION Expats! Your Employer Have No Rights To Reduce Your Salary Without This!

ATTENTION Expats! Your Employer Have No Rights To Reduce Your Salary Without This!

UAE
An employer cannot reduce the employee’s salary or change their designation without their written consent. I am writing on behalf of a friend who is working as a sales executive in a Dubai-based company. Ever since she got pregnant, she has been mentally pressured and harassed by her boss. Despite achieving sales targets before deadlines, her company says they are not doing well because of her poor performance. Further, they have sent an email demoting her position. It is evident that she is being targeted and she has not received incentives for the last two months. The company wants her to sign the demotion documents for approval. They also want to reduce her basic salary and housing. Also, to clarify, her basic was less than her housing transportation – it was not a 60-40 ratio
