Question HOW TO MOVE TO DUBAI? HELP!

Hi,
I'm 25 years of age, a trained dentist with almost 2 years worth of experience.

I want to move to dubai because I've always had an interest in the Middle East.

I'm a british male and I'm just enquiring how can I move to Dubai, buy a home & work, and eventually have a family over there.

I've visited Dubai many times and I am certain I want to move there.

Please help me

EK is the best but KLM or Lufhansa are normally the cheapest.

PS do you do mates rates need a bit of dental work doing?

Cut out the crap.

You don't care about the Middle East. You only want to come to Dubai because the streets are paved in gold with prostitutes and hedonistic bars on every other corner.

People who are genuinely interested in the ME don't move to Dubai. Or anywhere in the Gulf region which is a different world entirely.

You'd get more respect from us if you were honest.

Are you fully licensed as a Bikini Inspector? If so, I think there may be work out here for a man of your calibre.

Finally, some honesty.

You want to move to Dubai because everyone speaks English and you won't have to bother with the pesky business of learning Arabic or even worse, mixing with the locals. And it's not a dirty chaotic Middle Eastern city like Cairo or a stultifying place like Riyadh. Plus the sun is always shining! And it's tax free, unlike Spain or other popular expat destinations. You want to come to Dubai because it's clean and well-scrubbed and has a thriving hotel/bar/mall scene.

Kudos to you. Admitting the truth is always better in the long run.

Most of the doctors and dentists in Dubai are Indian/Pakistani/Lebanese/Egyptian. There might be something for you and it's a great place for a medical clinic because it's so easy to overcharge the private health insurance companies.

what is about KSA or OMAN? they are full of British. Why not to go there? I believe there are in Oman more British than Dubai or any other ME place.
IS it a good reason for being many times in a place to like to move to? I have been many times to Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Sydney, .... should I live in all these places?
what is in particular you liked in Dubai and you could not find anywhere els?
From my long travel around the world, the only thing I can think of, which is in Dubai , is sun, large hotels and prostitutions altogether at one place in Dubai.
