Hello everyone!

I thought of starting a discussion with people who migrated from Dubai to Adelaide in the past few years! People who have already applied for their skilled visas and are waiting to migrate are also welcome to join 🙂 

The idea is to connect with folks on topics like:

1) How do you find Adelaide vs Dubai? 

2) Looking back did the move work out for you? 

3) What are the things about Dubai you still miss dearly? 

4) How did you manage landing your first job? 

5) Any advice for people who will be migrating soon?  

I applied for my SA 489 visa along with my wife and baby in Jan 2019 and I’m currently waiting for my grant. 

Part of us is excited but another part of us is also anxious! Our reason for the move is to hopefully provide a better environment for our baby growing up and of course get PR at some point.

We do live comfortably in Dubai but it is starting to get expensive (especially raising a child) and our careers are stagnating. This is what prompted us to consider migration 🙂 

Your contributions will be invaluable to us and I thank you all in advance!! 

Cheers!

Not quite the same, but we moved from Oman to Sydney for similar reasons (career stagnating). We do miss champagne brunches, embassy parties and having house staff. But, you have to do what’s right for whatever stage of life and nothing has to be forever.

Ive been to Oman several times so can somewhat relate 🙂

For us and my occupation it worked out well, although we are now living 2 hours North of Sydney. 

I think getting work over here is so subjective.
