    Ohhh that's near to us... Nice. Praying for it.. Just want to know few details cause I'm currently here in UAE and will do study of caregiver here. Is there any possibility I can apply work for UK here?

    You would stand a better chance of getting a work visa if you became a nurse rather than a carer

    For Nursing course, it will take 4 years + Bar exam to passed that's why and learning Nursing here in Dubai will costs me a lot especially I'm alone supporting myself

    but thanks for the insight anyway

    To work in the UK you will either need employment sponsorship or be carrying out a job that is on the UK Gov skills shortage list.

    If you do get a job that allows you to get a work visa for the UK, Lenne, once you arrive in the UK there are so many advertised caregiver jobs!
    However, I agree with bigmac, nursing is much more useful to achieve your goal.

    Also don't overlook Canada, their biggest immigration group is Filipinos, fantastic country, I just booked a ticket, off there for five weeks in a few weeks time.

    Take me in your suitcase to the Banff area. It looks amazing and very picturesque.

    Lennie,

    When I met my wife, she was interested in becoming a caregiver.
    I visited a place in Cebu City and they said they could help ladies with employment.
    I don't know if there are similar places in Dubai or Abu Dhabi.

    Actually, that is my 2nd option if UK will not work for me. Yes indeed! and they also in need of caregivers.
