The company I work for has recently asked if I would be willing to relocate my family for approx. 12 - 18 months during an installation on a large scale project located within the Dubailand area. This being my first international moving experience with my family, I have some reservations. Two key concerns will be comfortable secure housing and an accredited American Elementary school in close proximity to each other.
Both will be paid for by the company. However, the budget for housing has not been negotiated and the anticipated time of move would be first of year - 2006. Therefore I am only looking for some general help in locations, price ranges and identifying contacts to school officials. Are there agencies that assist companies or individuals with this type of relocation?
In that I'm in Dubai approx. once a month for the next year, I would like to begin looking into what is available. Any suggestion or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
