  1. I find your piece very intriguing and helpful. Thanks for sharing . I am an admirer and follower of ” My Cup of Tea”. I am also a Member of the Nigerian Citizen in UAE.

      1. The Prof himself, kudos for this lovely piece. I hope it will facilitate and pave way for many Africans that are newly in the UAE.

  2. l love your piece of advise, very interesting to follow up. please l have a question to ask. l have gotten an offer of employment as a senior staff to work in a hospital twice, l receive a well prepared coloured offer pages and at the end l should contact their Agency to seek for Work permit/Residency permit and pay some amount of money. After doing this, l will be reimburse with a two month upfront salary pending after submitting all receipt to their HR manager of the hospital. l want to ask if this is genuine or is fraud? l only submit written details when applying and the next thing l saw, no interview, no phone call, no nothing that l am qualified, l was qualified from their letter and ask me to pay to their Agency to get Work permit etc…. l want to know if this is real?

    1. Please kindly disregard the offer, that’s not a standard for any company to recruit you by asking you to go and pay an agency. It is the duty of the agency to do the necessary documentation on your behalf.
