Visa fees for maids, drivers may double :: Khaleej Times

If you've never lived in the UAE, here some of the key facts to know in order to begin to imagine life here.

1. 80% of the population are not citizens and never will be.

2. 90% of the working population are noncitizens.

3. And, as the Khaleej Times reports today, an "official said domestic servants and others falling in this job category constituted 8.2 per cent of the labour force in the country."
