    Hi Siddharth,

    1) You cannot just buy a Residence visa. The visa scheme associated with property purchase is under controversy so i am not sure what the situation there is.

    2) Same as above. This is kind of controversial for now. It was promised before but is under review right now.

    3) Refer 1 and 2

    4) In Dubai, a good 2 BR apartment will be upwards of INR 2 crore's while a townhouse would be around INR 3.5 Crores and above. Bungalow (Villa) will be around INR 4 crore's and above.

    5) Inflation is at its highest right now in Dubai so living here is getting expensive. Biggest expensive for most people is accommodation. Annual rent for a 2BR apartment in a good area should be around AED 150k (INR 1.5 lakhs) and above, usually around 200k (INR 2 lakhs) if in areas like Dubai Marina or Burj Dubai. For a family of your size, depending on your lifestyle, expect to spend around 7-10k (INR 70,000 - 1 lakh) a month for education, insurance, living expenses etc. Again, this is subjective. It all depends on your lifestyle really, so i can't really answer that question accurately.

    6) Forums like this would be the best place to get such answers :)

    Good luck with your plans!

    Hi Talk,

    Education is getting expensive here and is paid right from pre-school!

    Expect to pay an average of AED 1000/month per child. I don't think transportation would be covered in this so add another AED 150-200/month for this. I've been told that some private schools charge as much as AED 300/month for transportation alone.
