Living in the UAE

Founded in 1971, the United Arab Emirates comprises seven Emirates positioned along the eastern edge of the Arabian Peninsula: Abu Dubai, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, Sharjah, and Umm Al Quwain. The country has established itself as one of the most popular destinations in which expatriates live and work, for many good reasons.


Living in the UAE exposes you to multiple nationalities, backgrounds and cultures, as more than 88 per cent of UAE residents are non-Emirati. People who live in the UAE are known to be extremely culturally aware and inclusive, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere as a result.


English is widely spoken here alongside Arabic—yet with such a diverse population, you’re likely to hear your native language sooner rather than later. 

Quality of life

Already the happiest nation in the Arab world, according to the World Happiness Report 2020, the UAE leadership has set the target of being the happiest in the world. This is reflected in the day-to-day quality of life, where people feel safe, and social cohesion is a priority. 


The UAE enjoys year-round sunny days, even during the ‘winter’ season. Although temperatures can rise to relatively high levels by global standards, the country is well-equipped to help residents and visitors remain cool.


The UAE is well-known as a nation of high ambitions, which is evident in its urban areas. The competitive nature of the country’s economy and job market means that employees enjoy favourable packages by regional and global standards.

Cost of living

The cost of living in the UAE is, on average, lower than the United States, including for rent, groceries, and restaurants. Residents can live a comfortable life with careful budgeting.  

Why you should join us

Being part of the Central Bank of the UAE places you at the start of a journey, where you are contributing to the country’s present and future each day — and so much more.
