Career V's Money

I am in a predicament. I have been offered a position in Dubai but the money is only approx US$20K more than my current status in Australia.
Is it worth up routing my family for this small financial gain but furthering my career. I would appreciate some input being positive and negative.

Thank you for your reply. I had a look our there yesterday and noticed a lot of the vehicles are new. I assumed there are imported vehicles from USA, etc. Do you know if they are GCC specifications. Is there a separate compliance plate for GCC / UAE.

Thanks

problem is a lot of appartments were bought off plan, so landlords have trippled their money. They are not as negotiable in rent as some may think, especially JBR suprisingly.
