Next week I will start working for a company registered in the Dubai free zone (Internet City).
I will be travelling alot across MEA so I will not spend much time in Dubai (max 5days/m)
However I will need to open a bank account in Dubai to get paid.
1)What kind of documents I need to do that?
2) My employer told me that he will get an "employment visa" - Is this the same with Residence Permit? - As far as I know I will not have a permanent address in Dubai - and I will stay in hotels there.
3) Any recommendation for banks with decent internet banking?
As I plan to transfer EUR or USD to my home country - whats the real exchange rate trough the bank account - I expect this to be a few percent in the banks pocket above the official rate
4) How long it takes them to issue a credit/debit card
5) Do you members and "forum addicts" have a regular place to hang out? maybe we can meet
