I ended up staying with my company (tech with global presence) and relocating. I don't really have the insight to tell you good and bad in the tech world here. You may be better finding who has the opportunity you are looking for and research it from there.

Good luck !

Every situation is different of course, so to try an assist with people wanting to work out "Is It Worth It" I put together this spreadsheet (with help from other posters here).

It's not going to be definitive or 100% accurate always - though it should help you with some of the usual costs, how things work and useful links for more info.

Feel free to download and use it. Read the notes in the welcome tab.

If there are any suggestions - please post them here.

If there are any updates to the file they will be posted in the replies below in this thread.

Hope you find this helpful to consider your move to the UAE / Qatar.

Cheers,

Auto
That's great!

This is a me of the best forums out there!

I am planning to move to Qatar from UK in a couple of months.

What is the situation at the moment? Considering the blockade...
food prices? Economy?
Rents? Etc

Thanks
Has
