What’s it like to live in Jabel Ali? 

The name may have been given to it after Ali, Muhammad’s cousin and son-in-law during the Islamic Caliphate. In Arabic, “Jebel” means mountain. 

Located just around the port, the Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA) was founded in 1985. The free zone offers special privileges for companies relocating there. For example, corporations are exempt from corporate tax for 50 years, there is no personal income tax, no import or re-export duties, and no restrictions on the currency. 

Only those who are searching for the full Dubai experience find the hidden gem of Jebel Ali. Initially, the city may seem like an unassuming tourist destination – after all, it’s known for its commercial harbour surrounded by an industrial free zone – but, on second glance, you’ll find that it’s home to much more than you might expect.

Where can I live in Jabel Ali? 

There’s no better place in the world to experience dynamic sports and beachside bliss than here, where an industrial landscape transforms into an experience paradise. Dubai Marina and Downtown Dubai are not far from JA Resort, and it offers a welcome respite from the city’s hustle and bustle. The picturesque beachfront offers plenty of water-based fun, a golf course frequented by the greats, an equestrian centre for riders of all abilities, and even a shooting range – you’ll never get bored. 

As a major industrial hub, most of the properties are warehouses and labour camps. The area is one of the best places to rent warehouses in Dubai. 

Apartments and villas are also available for rent in the city. Villas in Jabel Ali are available for those who wish to move to this rapidly developing district of Dubai. There are several good apartment collections for sale or for rent in Jebel Ali, so if you are looking to move to Jebel Ali it’s a good destination with some options to consider.

Yes, you can ship your vehicle to the Middle East, but you will need to comply with certain requirements. Generally, you will need to provide proof of ownership, a valid driver’s license, and insurance documents. Some countries in the Middle East may also require additional documentation such as import permits or emissions certificates. Your Move Manager can provide more information on the specific requirements for your vehicle’s shipment. It’s important to note that shipping a vehicle can be a complex process and may require additional fees, so it’s best to discuss your options with your Move Manager.

Customs regulations can vary depending on the specific country in the Middle East that you are shipping to. Generally, you will need to provide a detailed inventory of your belongings, a commercial invoice, and a bill of lading or air waybill. Depending on the nature of your shipment, you may also need additional documentation such as permits or licenses. It’s important to work with a trusted and experienced international removals company like John Mason International to ensure that you comply with all relevant regulations.

The packers were careful, quick and courteous. I highly recommend this company and would definitely use them again! Efficient, polite, punctual: could not ask for more.

From start with Michelle to finish with Gill the level of service was excellent. John Mason and its international partners handled my move from Devon to Australia seemingly effortlessly. I couldn't ask for better.
