Why to Vet in Dubai?


When I talk to vets, I realize that many of them are not familiar with the exciting opportunities and experiences Dubai has to offer. Did you know, for example, that the UAE government has established the Ministry of Happiness and Wellbeing?

If you’ve ever considered taking a leap in your career and life, UAE may be the perfect place for your next adventure. I'm here to spark your curiosity and inspire you to consider taking this remarkable step. Allow me to bring the spirit of dynamic Emirates closer to you. 

Here's why the UAE is a fantastic place to live and work:

  •  Tax free income: Of course tax-free income in the UAE is one of the most attractive incentives of making a move to the Middle East. Working in the UAE for a few years allows many vets to pay off their mortgages back home faster. With just a 5% VAT on goods and services, Dubai offers a great opportunity to enhance your lifestyle, enjoy special holidays, and make impressive financial investments.
  • You don’t need to pass a language exam: English is spoken so widely, including between locals and expats, that you would struggle to find a sector where you would not be able to communicate. 
  • Low cost of petrol and transportation: As of October 2023, the prices for both Unleaded 98 and Diesel fuel remain below $1 per liter. You can rent a car for just £400 per month. The cost of petrol is still considerably lower than in other cities and countries worldwide.Renting a car is a straightforward process in the UAE, and it's common for people to drive a rental car during their initial months in the country.
  • Safety and Security: When I made the move to Dubai back in 2012, my family and friends were quite apprehensive and concerned about my safety, especially since I was relocating as a single woman. However, they soon discovered that I was more than safe. The UAE's strict laws contribute to virtually non-existent crime rates. What truly amazed me was when I accidentally left my wallet in the shopping mall restroom. When I realized my mistake after an hour or so, I found it right there with all the cash and cards still inside, untouched. I am confident to say that you can definitely live in the UAE with no worries past common sense and personal safety. 
  • Progress and innovation: Living in Dubai is exciting, with new attractions and experiences continually emerging. It's like finding surprises after a short holiday. You'll never run out of things to do or see. In just two weeks, you might return to find new roads, traffic lights, and parking spaces. Witnessing skyscrapers rising from the ground in just two years is a common sight in Dubai. Apart from the rapid development of infrastructure, you'll also stumble upon new dining spots and places of interest that have popped up during your absence. Dubai's ever-changing landscape ensures there's always something fresh and exciting to explore. 
  • Exceptional lifestyle: The lifestyle in Dubai offers a blend of modernity and luxury that's hard to beat. Every aspect of the lifestyle is designed to offer you the best. What makes UAE special, is its commitment to customer service. You'll experience outstanding hospitality at every turn. Whether you are shopping in a world class shopping mall like the Dubai Mall, dining at restaurants run by famous chefs like Gordon Ramsay, using well-connected road networks and the efficient Dubai Metro, or seeking medical care, you get to enjoy the lifestyle that truly stands out as exceptional. 
  • Modern and cheap transportation: Dubai’s metro system is one of the world’s most advanced, fully automated driverless transit lines. Given the city's reputation for luxury, it's no surprise that even the handrails and floor tiles in the metro stations sparkle when you take a closer look. Not many people notice these finer details, so when you find yourself at major stations like Dubai Mall or Union, make sure to observe and appreciate them!

  • Traveling opportunities: If you love to travel, it's important to note that flights to most tourist destinations are just 5-6 hours away from Dubai. Whether you want vacation in Europe, Africa or Asia you are in a very convenient location. If you're looking for a change of scenery and want to escape Dubai and Abu Dhabi, you don't have to travel far. There are a total of seven Emirates to explore, including Ajman, Fujairah, Ras al Khaimah, Sharjah, and Umm Al Quwain, each of which has its unique characteristics, including different-colored sand. 
  • Cultural and sports events: Relocating to another country is hard enough, and moving on your own can be even more challenging. I can personally attest to this as I've done it three times, first to the UK, then to Dubai, and later to Australia. Based on my experience, meeting new people is crucial, and it truly contributes to a smoother transition. Luckily, in the UAE, you'll find plenty of expat social groups and clubs, which makes it simple to connect with people who share your interests and from whom you can get helpful advice. Whether you love playing volleyball, dancing salsa, going to the theater, or camping in the desert, you'll meet others with similar passions. Here are some of the best places to connect with like-minded individuals.Dubai is also known for hosting outstanding performances, and top-notch artists like Beyoncé, Lewis Capaldi, and Ed Sheeran frequently choose the city as one of their tour destinations. The vibrant atmosphere and state-of-the-art venues in Dubai ensure that concert-goers can experience world-class entertainment.




  •  Weather: While it can get hot in the summer, the cooler months from November to March bring pleasant and mild weather, with daytime temperatures ranging from 20°C to 30°C (68°F to 86°F). Dubai enjoys abundant sunshine throughout the year, making it a perfect destination for those who love outdoor activities. Moreover, you'll find the city equipped with excellent air conditioning, ensuring comfort wherever you go, from your workplace and shopping malls to the metro, car, and your own home. 
  •  Meeting dietary needs: Many vets are vegans, and the UAE is an excellent place for those who follow a vegan diet. The link below provides enough information to assure you that you can comfortably meet your dietary requirements in the UAE without any concerns: https://www.theveganary.com/uae/
  • Personal growth: Maybe that wouldn’t be on top of your list, yet from the perspective of time, I understood how valuable transformation I underwent throughout these years spent in the Middle East. Being exposed to not just the traditional Middle Eastern cultures, religions and languages, but those from all over the world, I understood the wider perspective – and my place in the world. Truly, you can learn something new and meet someone unique every day. In UAE, surely you will make new friends, learn new attitudes to living and never look at the world in the same way again. 
  •  It's not as restrictive as portrayed in the media: You can drink alcohol in clubs and hotels. You can purchase alcohol in the shop when you buy an alcohol license. You can dress as you please, being mindful of avoiding places of worship and sacred ground. Relationships and dating happen just as they do at home, just without ‘public displays of affection.  

So, consider this an invitation to embark on a unique journey. Let me be your window into the captivating world of Dubai, and discover why it's a leap that may well be worth making in your career and life.
