keep-calmThe burning question asked by every expat facing re-entry (and every repat in its throes) is this: “How long does it take?”
It’s a good question, but it’s tough to answer definitively, for a couple of reasons. First, every expat (and therefore, every re-entry) is different. Second, repatriation isn’t an event. It’s a process.
Yes, it can be quick. In fact, some lucky souls re-integrate almost immediately. Of the 539 repats who answered this question on my repatriation survey last year, 11% of first-time returnees said they started to feel at home right away.

ask louiseQuestionI am looking to move to Dubai but I’m extremely nervous despite it being my life long dream to move there. I wanted to ask you about when you get a job and you need accommodation, should you ask your employer and discuss this or just go along with what they have planned for you. Also, is business reliable in Dubai

AnswerDubai is a fabulous place to live but accommodation can be quite expensive. Depending on the type of business you are in and which area the company is located in, will help you decide where to live. Most Expats that are offered a position in Dubai  from their home country will have a package to include a housing allowance, making sure it will cover what you need will require doing some homework and finding out all the extra costs for deposits, for example DEWA.  It is very worthwhile to use the knowledge and expertise of a Relocation Company such as Move One Relocations to help you with your home search.  There are many hidden costs when moving to Dubai – please see this link to learn about these costs.  Business is reliable in Dubai but as with any job it is advisable to do your research on the company beforehand.
