DUBAIFor the last decade expats have been moving to Dubai in largenumbers, often lured by the promise of tax-free wealth andluxury living.As the second largest state or emirate in the United ArabEmirates after Abu Dhabi, Dubai was once considered a barrenlandscape in the oil-rich Gulf, but is now a thriving metropolis,attracting thousands of new residents to its shores each month.Contrary to popular belief, Dubai’s main source of revenue is notoil.

QATAROnce expats moving to Qatar actually figure out where this tinyGulf state is located on a map, the next bit of information toprocess is normally the fact that Qatar has emerged as a liquidnatural gas powerhouse that claims the highest per capitalincome in the world (2011).The gas- and oil-rich economy has elevated the miniatureemirate to an important global player. As a result of the fossil fuelboom, as well as monarch Emir Hamad bin Khalif Al Thani’s socio-political liberalisation policies, Qatar now hosts regiments ofCommonwealth and South Asian expats; and increasing numbersof foreigners are moving to Qatar to work hard, save money inthe tax-free environment, and maintain a standard of living andwealth relatively similar to that of Western Europe.While there are plenty of work opportunities for expats interestedin employment in the petrochemical sector, Qatar is also workingto increase foreign investment in non-energy sectors, such as IT,construction, and – to take a page from Dubai’s book – tourism.Not to mention, with its successful 2022 World Cup bid, the nationwill be filtering big spending into improving infrastructure. As aresult, it’s likely more manpower will be required to transformDoha, the capital city often described as half building site, halfpark, into something whole.Expats and their families can look forward to an emirate that putsan emphasis on cultural and education disciplines. WhereasQatar used to be the backward country cousin of the region, itnow aims to be the Middle Eastern flagship for socialdevelopment and intellectualism. In recent years, it has workedhard to create a “knowledge economy”, and to promoteventures like the Museum of Islamic art and a massive EducationCity.
