UAE - Dubai

Detailed information about Dubai



Dubai, which was a city in the middle of desert until recently, is one of the 7 emirates. It is an emirate that gained its independence from the British in 1969. Citizens of Dubai are addressed as “Emirati”. Especially since the beginning of 2000, it has hosted a wide variety of international companies due to many tax advantages. Until recently, oil was Dubai’s largest revenue item, and in the last 20 years, it has made its name in the world in an important way, especially in the field of tourism and informatics. Dubai, which is open to all kinds of developments, has opened its doors to people from all over the world who want to start a new life in terms of vacant positions in the service sector and the opportunities. It would not be wrong to call Dubai as the USA of the Middle East.

Dubai is an emirate with extreme temperatures due to its geographical location. September – May is the peak season for tourists. The summer months are not very popular due to extreme heat. There are huge skyscapers that have become a symbol of the world in Dubai. Burj Al-Arab and Burj Al-Khalifa, which are called the tallest buildings in the world, are among the most symbolic structures.


Although Dubai’s economy was dependent on petroleum when it was first established, it has made a big break in the last 20 years due to visionary views of Dubai emirs. Dubai has had a strong economy, as it is the center of tax-free trade and a strong breakthrough has been made in Dubai, especially in the fields of tourism and informatics. Emirates Airlines, which was established in Dubai is created a world famous brand. Dubai has become a serious workforce attraction center from all over the world because people who are qualified in their field are provided with the opportunity to work with high wages.

Among the leading sectors; petroleum, tourism, informatics, aviation, construction and service sectors.

Sharia law exists in Dubai. Countries such as Saudi Arabia and Iran should not come to mind when it comes to Sharia. About 88% of people living in Dubai are people from other countries, which we call expats. Considering the people coming from other secular countries of the world, the Shariah administration is implemented in a much more flexible way. Dubai is already a country where the rules are strictly enforced. While people can dress very comfortably on beaches, the dress code in public places where people come together due to the rules is partially inflexible.


Dubai can be considered one of the safest countries in the world. Since social rules are applied very strictly, people comply with these rules by force of law. For example; You can travel comfortably in Dubai even late at night. On certain days, entertainment opportunities are offered to women in entertainment venues.
