It is my pleasure to help you any possible ways in this regard.

Laws are almost same in any countries in middle east because all of them stick in to 'Sharia Law'. K S A is with the toughest ONE! A non-muslim will find it's really difficult to proceed a normal life there.

In Bahrin & UAE you will find more freedom. U A E locals behave very decent with expats, inspite of K S A and Kuwait.

Bahrin has changed their Visa sponsorship rule in the month of August 2009. It's called "A REVELOUTION" in the region. (please google to learn the details).

"Own Visa" is not exactly exist anywhere in GCC. There will be a sponsor in your 'Iqama' (Residence Card). In KSA they allow (not by law, authorities close their eyes towards this actually) to work under another employer who is not your sponsor. But you even cant imagine this type of practice in UAE or Kuwait. If any employee found working under another employer (which is not mentioned in his 'Bataqa Amal' - Work Permit), 3 (three) people will be fined. Employee - AED: 3000/-, current employer AED: 10,000- 50,000- , and the original sponsor AED: 25,000 - 50,000!


As Mr. Amish told, HR & Admin is always a single department in this region. It's also called PRO (Public Relation Operation). U A E has implemented a new rule last year that the PRO representative to goverment offices should be a local (emarati).

Hope you can find an Admin Assistant job in any of good companies. Start from there. Gradually you will learn..... May be you will say yourself after years "Oh these were those systems Mammu wrote me in citeHR!"

Don't give up. It may take a little more to clear up this recession section.

Wait and see.... Good day to you,

Hi Dr.VSRege,
I would be thankful if you you provide me more info about Radio Bhavan for learning Arabic language.
Thank you :-)
Dear Mr.Amish,
I completed my Diplome in Arabics from Radio Bhuvan ,Arthur BUnder Road,Colaba,Mumbai on a One to One basis , way back in 1990s.Since I was a Professional,working Full Time,I opted for a ONE-to-ONE option. I DO NOT want to advertise any institutions here and hence suggest to you that you may look for ANY suitable well known school in Arabic Learning closer to you.
In case you need Radio Bhavan's info Just Dial.
Let me assure you all- learning Arabic is NOT AT ALL difficult,on the contrary it has been an Enjoyable learning experience for me which brought me a Lot of Success in dealing with Arab clientele from All the Arabic countries.You would be surprised to know that though the basic Arabic is the same its dialect changes with the countries and good news -Dubai arabs speak pretty good HINDI.
All the Best to you.

Hi All,
Mr Mammu would definately like to say myself after years the knowledge you provided to me.
Very well said Ms. Anshwish, this sense of belongingness pushed me to post over here so that I can clear my doubts on this critical issue. As the decisions made during this process can change one's life.
Dr.Rege I am thankful for your deep concern about my erratic language. As I told earlier I am a fresher, so prone to make mistakes. even in this reply i would've commited so many. Though I've downloaded the PPT. Criticises gives a room to improvement, so thanks again.
Thanks for your wishes
