Former expats missing good life head back to Dubai

According to a report in, former expat workers in Dubai disappointed in the lack of opportunity and salary cuts in their home countries are heading back to the good life in Dubai.

However, things may have changed since the point of leaving. Supply is now exceeding demand, and employers are becoming more selective. In addition, moves by all the Middle Eastern countries including the UAE are edging towards employing nationals in preference to expats, however well they know the region and its culture. Jobs are still out there, with finance and banking the major sector followed by the oil and gas industries, with education, industrial and health care positions on the up, but the writing is on the wall.

Dubai employers are cutting back on expat packages, and are in a better negotiating position given an oversupply of applicants, making the good life a little less good than before.
