Question Dubai Dubai

Hi All,

I am about to accept a job in Dubai for a few years having never worked outside the uk before.
Has anyone got any advice on bank accounts and getting money back to the uk on a monthly basis ? Do I open a local account ? can I transfer money to a Natwest current account here in the uk ?

Any other advice you can give me before I jump on the plane ?

Oh and what about getting a decent tan ? is that permitted in the UAE ?

You can use your Nat West cards in the machines until you get your account set up, read the PM and the FAQ's first.

For the UK funds, set up an offshore account with Allied Irish.

Their account allows you to pay all your UK bills via direct debit whilst giving you tax free growth on the interest (whilst you are outside the EU)
