Journos/TV & Radio Producers/Research Students We get a lot of requests from journos wanting to interview expats so here's the place to do it. Please, everyone, have a look and see if you can help.

UAE - Other Please post here only if your posting doesn't seem to belong on any of the other UAE forums - but please don't use it to post loads of questions about finding a house, schools, work etc. Please post separate threads on the appropriate forums. (NB - if you want to post about something not UAE-specific, please post on the main British Expat Forum.)
Jumble Sale This forum is for all the jumbled up info about the Emirates. We've asked that, on the info forums, you please post on the relevant forums, start new threads for new topics, and please keep on topic. Otherwise the info is too hard to find for those coming after, and people end up having to repeatedly answer the same questions. (If your posting is locked in here, please feel free to post again in the appropriate place.)
