Dubai – fertile ground for expat relocation

Jul 23, 2013
Dubai has become the business and cultural hub of the Persian Gulf with its core economy built on oil, now bolstered by financial services, property and tourism.

The city’s clear blue sky is pierced by futuristic buildings including the famous Burj Khalifa that towers 828 meters, making it the tallest building in the world. Man-made islands, huge shopping malls and palatial hotels make Dubai a popular destination for wealthy tourists and expats whose generous incomes are paid totally free of tax.


Despite its affluence and seemingly irrepressible appetite for growth, Dubai has not come through the downturn in the world economy unscathed. Almost 300 construction projects were put on hold or abandoned altogether during the financial crisis resulting in a plunge in house prices of around 60% towards the end of 2008. However, the market is making a steady recovery and once again the construction sites are beginning to come back to life, albeit with a healthy measure of caution.


Dubai has been rated the 22nd most expensive city in the world, but it is also – according to American consulting firm Mercer – one of the best places to live in the Middle East. Perhaps that is why expats account for over 90% of the population, making Dubai fertile ground for the global relocation industry. 


Relocation specialist Interem offers a full relocation service to Dubai as well as other locations in the Middle East and the rest of the world with warehousing capacity of more than 300000 sqft in the UAE alone.


The company began operations in 1995 from its base in Dubai and is now one of the most successful and fastest growing relocation companies in the region with an account base of over 100 Fortune 500 companies and more than 25,000 families relocated in the UAE during the past 18 years. Interem is affiliated to FIDI, OMNI, BAR and ERC.

As members of the International Association of Movers, EUROMOVERS, the Asian Relocation Association and the Universal Freight Organization, it is able through its partners to provide relocation services to most parts of the world.
