Please don't class me as a beggar. If I have to pay Dhs4.5K for a hotel apartment in Dubai then I will do so. Just trying to offer British Expats the chance to make a few quid rather than lining the pockets of the hotel industry. Perhaps I shoouldn't have bothered. Looking forward to going home.

It's a good time of year for a nice long camping trip. Check out the Omani mountains one last time.

My work finishes on 31st Dec but we are not flying home until 9th January because we need time to process my wife's settlement visa. It takes 60 days. My boss says we can keep the company car until we fly home but our villa tenancy expires on New Years Eve.

60 days for visa sorting here or UK?

Can you go somewhere nice on holiday instead?

Plot Twist : Mentalist's family is going to be away and he just needs a place to have a massive new year's night debauchery session which will carry on for the next week?!?

Have you tried asking your landlord if you can extend for 10 days? You can make a private agreement.

I am surprised no one would be interested. A chap I work with is putting his 2 dogs into kennels over Xmas so the family can go to Thailand so that would be a saving in itself plus happier dogs

Just think of the cost of the quality education Missy J could be receiving gratis for the next decade and of course the services of the NHS Madam,Sir and Missy will enjoy.All those years ago since you stopped contributing tax and NI .....
plus Madam who allegedly never contributed.....DHS 7k? bargain really.

I have continued paying NHS contributions and my wife had to pay GBP600 for medical expenses payments to get her visa. As for Scamp's comment, yes it takes 60 days (here) to apply for a spouse visa. To Irishbeekeeper, the family will obviously be staying here with me as my wife's passport is with the UK embassy for processing. Anyway, in the absence of any help here, we have paid Dhs4,000 for a hotel apartment.
