If you are thinking of living and working in the UAE please take our advice and register with your Embassy.
Many of our teachers ask us whether or not we recommend registering with your embassy in the UAE and the answer is always yes. We not only recommend registering with your embassy if you are living in the UAE but for any of our positions overseas. The reasons are plentiful as your embassy can;
- Notify you in case of any life threatening situation in the foreign country and evacuate you if needed.
- Contact your family in case of emergency.
- Contact you if there is an emergency at home or inform the authorized person from your registration how to contact you.
- Expedite the application of renewing or replacing your passport, if your passport is stolen or lost.
It will not cost you anything to register and it can provide you and your family with peace of mind.
