Working in UAE

    I was just wondering about working in places like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait.
    I was thinking Saudi Arabia as option number one, but whats putting me off is the complexity of their visas ( i.e entry visa and multi entry visa) I wouldn't want to be stuck in a country at the hands of my employer. Also in terms schools, which to avoid, how to know if the school is reputable and not a scam in terms of benefits (ie flight, accommodations, healthcare etc)
    Which would be better in terms of pay, safety, and quality of schools.
    Also would like to hear from those who teach primary or secondary in those countries and how it is.
    Thank you!

    If you're put off by Saudi Arabia because of their visa requirements then you'll be put off by Qatar as well as you also need an exit permit from your employer to leave Qatar...
