Living in the UAE can be a minefield of bureaucracy. Newcomers are often overwhelmed by the volume of forms that need to be completed, certificates that have to be obtained (or provided) and hoops that one has to jump through just to get started in daily life. With this in mind I was asked to research, write and edit a resident’s guide for the UAE to offer value-added content for the relaunch of The National’s website.
The Guide, as it became known, is divided into three sections: practical advice for day-to-day living; social tips for enjoying free time; and a final section on the heritage and culture of the UAE.
