This isn't the company. This is from the Abu Dhabi government stating that all 18,000 people from all companies who don't want to live in sandblown Khalifa A or downtown Karachi Abu Dhabi don't have a choice if they want their housing allowance.

Will they have someone knocking at every address to confirm you are actually " living " in AD ? What proof will they need ? Do they pay you a housing allowance or pay the landlord ?
Some require a certified copy of the landlord, which need to be certified again by the municipality of Abu Dhabi that he/she is the registered owner, before they pay you the living allowance. Just went through that excercise

i will make it easier...like everyone else involved in the new rule will do...i will cross the street as soon as i can!When your private life is good you can deal with something you don't like in your job,you can still swallow everything you have to go through...i used to say to many friends of mine to come over here and enjoy life...what happened was the most brutal wake up call!
But what goes around comes around...sooner or later

it is a requirement that the full family has to be in Abu Dhabi, no school allowance will be paid in Dubai and no visa for wife and children if they will not leave with you in Abu Dhabi!!

menegoc is the no school and no visa for wife and child just a guess, an assumption or hard fact. If fact then what is your source?

Adopted kids

Hello everyone, i can't seems to find any post regarding this. Anyone knows If UAE govt allows adopted kids be brought in?

The issue with adopted kids is they're considered marriable by their parents when they reach puberty as they have no blood tie. And having a non-muhrim in the same house creates problem?

Thanks

Atis 777 I spoke to HR, they know people will try to rent a small place or share an accomodation,if you have a family staying in the uae they have to be permanently in ABU DHABI if you want ot get the house allowance or school allowance,basically the only way could work it out if you don't have children and your wife is not working than once you rent a small place nobody will be able to track were you are going to spend the night, unless they track were you use your credit card!!

What's going to happen in Dubai when all those rentals become empty? Will Sheik Mo ask Sheik Khalifa to reverse it to bail out the Dubai landlords?

Housing is provided by an unnamed airline in AUH but at times it is in short supply hence the allowance and some crews choosing to live in Dubai. Previously the allowance would hardly cover acceptable housing in AUH but since the real estate crisis in Dubai and the drop in rents it became attractive to rent in Dubai and commute to Abu Dhabi. A glut in housing ensued in the capitol so the owners and developers were left with a surplus in available units, now the money grab has started, road safety is the excuse but greed is the reason.
