    When I first went to the Middle East I had to sort out a temporary work permit as the employer - so I was told - could not do so from within the country. Once I got there, the employer sorted out a proper work permit for me.
    I have also had jobs where I had to pay for my flights and I was reimbursed once I started working.
    If, however, the employer is not willing to reimburse the costs of either, then I would really think long and hard whether or not it is worth it.
