Advice for expats contemplating on moving to Melbourne :)
I left Dubai with my kids (migrated to Melbourne) several years ago.
I am returning to this site after 6 years (wanted to get a feel for what's happening in Dubai and hopefully be able to provide some useful advice to people contemplating on making the move to Australia, Melbourne specifically).
It looks like nothing much has changed in Dubai - same callous landlords from ****, DEWA/Etisalat and their motto - customer is always wrong, high rents, school admissions and ever increasing fees (cannot believe the rents and cost of education in Dubai - just mind boggling).
For those planning to make the move to Melbourne - Congratulations!! We couldn't be happier with our decision to quit our jobs, leave Dubai (after almost a decade and a half there) and migrate permanently to Melbourne. Please feel free to ask me for any advice regarding your move, cost of living, suburbs, schools, jobs......etc.
