The sphere of real estate develops at a rapid pace to offer the top properties of impressive construction. Many foreign investors buy property in The Crescent for sale as a place for permanent stay and a profitable investment project. But what specific features will buyers face when they become owners of homes in Dubai?
Almost impossible to get the UAE citizenship
Even if you are an incredibly rich person, it does not mean that you will become a UAE citizen immediately. Obtaining a UAE passport is a very difficult procedure, almost impossible. The government issued specialized zones where foreigners are allowed to buy real estate and live. It is impossible to buy properties in the places where locals live even if you have an enormous sum of money. But do not worry, life in Dubai will still be comfortable, because the state takes care of everyone present in the country.
Locals work a few hours a day
The citizens of the UAE have a striking number of subsidies and payments on any occasion. Besides, they have a short working day. Locals work only until two in the afternoon, and then they devote time to their families, friends, and interests.
The high level of life in the country is maintained due to the expense of oil, of course, as well as foreign labor. Mostly men from India, Pakistan and other poor countries come to Dubai to live and work.
No tolerance for those who violates the rules
The low crime rate in Dubai is due to the harsh penalties and intolerant attitude toward crime. There are many rules and regulations to learn here, so be sure to do your research before setting foot on UAE soil.
Some strict rules include:
– It is forbidden to take a picture of a person without their consent. Such invasion of privacy will cost a huge penalty and even sentence to jail.
– You cannot take and keep poppy seeds. Due to the opinion of governmental institutions, the substance can be used to make opium. Therefore, it is to be prohibited in the UAE. A handful of poppy seeds can land you in jail without any negotiations.
– Eating and drinking in all forms of public transportation are forbidden in Dubai and the UAE in general. From subways and buses (and their stations) to crosswalks, if you are caught eating or drinking here, you can expect to be fined.
– Swearing in public is also banned. Foul language is punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine of up to AED 10,000 (£2,157). Showing the middle finger will also result in deportation.
Presence of special women zones
Dubai is a very good place for women of any nationality as the city is ranked among the safest in the world. Besides, there are certain spaces in Dubai where only women are allowed. The city has special metro carriages and taxis for women. Every day, controllers in Dubai punish about a hundred men who decide to take advantage of a woman’s privilege of a comfortable ride. Some beaches may also be closed for men for some time.
