EY and family status

Hi Folks,

Just wondering if I can bring my girlfriend with me to Abu Dhabi or should I get married before? I am worried that as a "girlfriend" she wouldn't be entitled to any EY benefits like health insurance, travel bennies or resident visa sponsoring by myself. Let me know if I am wrong.

I am not an EY guy but as far as I know you can't even live together with a girlfriend in the same apartment in the UAE. That is the law! So I guess yes, you will need to get married.

The only thing that your "gilfriend" will be intiteled to is 10 annual perk. travel tickets a year. Thats about it. So my advise is get married and do it 100% right. Sharia Law is something you do not want to mess with.

you're not even allowed to bring your girlfriend in your temporary accomodation (they could ask you the marriage certificate)....nevertheless...this is a great airline! If you really want to come.... I suggest you to get married!
good luck

wed first

Unless your gf can secure employment with a local company before coming, get yourself to Vegas for a few days beforehand.

We did it n Jan and I can't see any other way to live together here and be relaxed.

From NY.. aged 30..and "Worried"...Jessus H Christ!
Get real man...you will be soooo knee deep in a huge variety of good international pussy hunting you down like a dog...for an entry visa into the USA...I doubt you will have the time or energy left to fly de plane.
In case you ask....I do not think you will be in any fit state to enjoy trying to commute to the USA on your days off to see anyone.
