Relocating to Abu Dhabi

To whom it may concern

Hello / As-Salaamu-Alaikum

My name is Salmaan, I am from South Africa.

I will be permanently moving to Abu Dhabi in December and will be looking for a job.I am just trying to get to know some people as I understand that the South African community in the  UAE is quite large.

I also would like to know what life is like, what to look out for and if possible if someone could show me around upon arrival so I can get to know the place.


I just arrived in abu Dhabi two months ago so some things are still fresh in my head.

What type of job are you looking for?   It might be best to start looking now, get in touch with employment agencies as job hunting is quite difficult here in the UAE unless you have a good professional network.

Life in abu Dhabi is quiet and more laid back than Dubai. It's more relaxed so you don't feel as much pressure from materialism and all the fancy things. With that said, there are still lots of opportunities to socialize and meet new people.  If you have any more questions, you can PM me!  More than happy to help
