The Ultimate Home Packing Guide for Dubai Expats

Packing Guide for Dubai expats

Contrary to the popular belief about the Middle East, it is completely safe to visit and work in the UAE. In fact, over eighty-five percent of the population in Dubai are expatriates from all over the world. If it is your first time to move to this remarkable region, here is the ultimate packing guide.

Are you planning to move to Dubai? You can get a wide variety of property types in Dubai Hills Estate which is placed in the MBR City development. Alternatively, there are numerous apartments for sale in Dubai. Also, you can get attractive units at the Madinat Jumeirah Living in the Jumeirah area.

To move to your new home, here’s a packing guide for you so that you can settle in the new city stress-free:

  1. Sunscreen

If you are new in Dubai, there is no way you can head out of the city without wearing sunscreen even during winter. In particular, the temperature in mid-summer is unforgiving and the best way to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays is to wear sunscreen. For the facial skin, you should choose a sunscreen with a higher SPF and a formula that does not make your face look like you were dipped in oil.

  1. Deodorant body wipes

A roll-on can come in handy when roaming around the city. Without a good deodorant, the perspiration can cause an unpleasant odour. However, you can take a swipe with these body wipes which can be very effective in your excursions.

  • UAE power adapter

The UAE uses 220-volt electricity. So, unless your electronic appliance or laptop has a dual voltage, you will need a converter or transformer. However, you can circumvent the issue by investing in an international travel charger.

  1. Sunglasses

Dubai is known for its arid and sunny climate. Therefore, you should invest in a good pair of sunglasses to save your eyes from the strain and hassle during the day.

  1. Hats and Caps

Sun protection is very crucial even if you are wearing sunscreen. So, it is good to have a hat when going out. It is good to choose a foldable and wide sunhat so that you can pack it easily.

  1. Beach bag

Dubai has some of the most famous beaches in the world. There is a rich selection of both private and public beaches where you can enjoy all day long. Get a durable and cute beach bag to tag your belongings when you go to the beach.
