Being a resident in the UAE means you have a sponsor and if you are a wife you are more than likely sponsored by your husband.

On your visa you will see the words “HOUSEWIFE/NOT ALLOWED TO WORK.”  You are of course allowed to work but only after you obtain a NOC (No Objection Certificate) from your husband stating that he will allow you to work.  When you do eventually find a job the company hiring you has to then apply for a labour card for you – you cannot work for them legally without this.  .

If you are working without a labour card  both you and the company can get fined and you could face imprisonment and/or deportation if caught. Should there be any dispute between you and your employer you will not be able to submit a complaint to the labour courts as you are working illegally. Read more

The ceremony surrounding the preparation, serving and drinking of gahwa (Arabic coffee) derived from the traditions of Islamic and Bedouin hospitality. Unlike the comparatively stronger flavoured “western” style coffees, the traditional gahwa of the Emirates has a very mild coffee flavour, a distinct cardamom taste with a touch of saffron. Gahwa is never sweetened with sugar, instead fresh dates are offered to accompany the aromatic brew. The dates refresh and sweeten the palate between each sip of gahwa. Read more
