    Hi! it really depends on where you are staying and what's the deal with your job. I'm opening this thread so that people who live in Dubai can help you with suggestions.

    Check the luggage limit of the airlines you are travelling in... Weigh frequently while packing and make sure it doesn't exceed the limit... Pack whatever essentials you use here..

    Hi there ... I understand the mindset people have when travelling outside india.... but regarding dubai its a place where u will get everything tht u get in india .... so no need to bring any food / eating stuffs all are readily available .... the only thing which you may consider bringing would be medicines but check the list of medicines which are banned in dubai ....the medicines are very expensive here .... but you will be getting a medical insurance here still its better to have the basic medicines with you ..... otherwise there is nothing which you need to worry about not getting in dubai .....

    best of luck for your job and have a great stay

    First of all congrats on the job!
    second i think what the company means by necessary things could be your attested educational documents and other work related documents because please dont fret over small everyday items which you can very well get from here itself and they are not at all expensive especially the Chinese ones. As for necessary items, tht is a broad term isnt it? do choose wisely what you think is absolutely important to you and your duration of the stay (i leave that to you).
    Do keep in mind that in no circumstances can you bring in any sort of DRUGS(CHARAS,GANJA,HEROIN,COCAINE ETC) or contraband(ANY BANNED SUBSTANCE SUCH AS PRESCRIPTION MEDICINES LIKE TRAMADOL AND LYRICA AND ETC) in any GCC country.
    Do check with your travel agent what is permissible and what is not.
    Also lastly DO NOT PUT IN MORE THAN 32 KILOS OF LUGGAGE IN ONE SUITCASE. Even a slight increase of half a kilo and you will have to open up ur luggage and remove that extra bit, once again do check with the agency how much cargo and in flight carry on you will be allowed.
    Hope that helps.
