I've often thought what's the catch about Dubai as well.
From my research, I know that I can at least get 3 months worth of visitor visa upon landing.
I'm not too too worried about finding a job b/c I have a network system set up there through people I work with, who were there for 4 yrs, as well as people I've met in Canada, who happen to be in the advertising field.
Currently, in Toronto, it's expensive anyways, I make good money yet my living expenses are so high I can't save as much money as I'd like to be able to get myself into the financial position I'd like to be in. It's not uncommon to pay 800-900 for a basement 1 bedroom here and that's not getting you much! Not to mention the other expenses like car insurance and now gas. The other shitty thing is the amount of taxes we have to pay in this country. I pay just under 400 a week from my cheque, then it went up and a little more get's taken off for our provincial government to cover off more healthcare expenses.
So, I lose about an extra paycheque per yer to that, the list goes on. Don't get me wrong, I love my country, and will be moving back here without a doubt, but for now.......time to explore.
AS far as the concerns of working, I'm university educated, with overe 2 years of experience, should be able to get something decent.
Biotest......no shipping. Drats. Oh well, I suppose I'll have to improvise the best I can.
Thanks for all the advice, I appreciate it all.
And, yes I'll keep updates and maybe some pictures as I go.
