This point is validated by reports showing ‘increase in occupancy rates’ and ‘revenue per room’ for most hotels in Dubai.
Even the visa policies in Dubai are pretty lucrative and opting for a work permit doesn’t cause too much stress. This favorable scenario drives workforce to settle in Dubai with their families on a long-term basis to enjoy a decent work-life balance and stay within safe & secure communities.
