All of them and none of them. It is very hard to answer this question without knowing what domain you are into, what languages you know and what areas of experience you have been exposed to. Please give us more details

UAE (Dubai) is a good option because no tax. But I don't know about software industry there.

Why that in the first place? If you explain that may-be we can be of help. Well otherwise I can say that the girls in Singapore are really cute.

Personallly I would never go to search in another country, a different culture is nice for a holiday but not to live in permanently. But that is personal I guess.

I think his question is very simple which is not related to any technology, domain.

He has 7+ years of experience. He want to work abroad to make more money than he is making in India (Raj correct me if I am wrong) .

If you read his few earlier posts, you will notice that he is been doing some research for that. Based on his research he has shortlisted three countries where he feels he can earn ( and save ) little more than what he is making in India. Those three countries are

1.Dubai (no tax but cost of living will be more)
2.Bahrain (no tax)
3.Singapore ( more tax)

Now from above three he want to concentrate on one so for that he is asking advice from people who have experience or knowledge about these countries.

Now what is important for him

1) What salary he can get.
2) What will be cost of living.
3) How much will be taxes.

And finally how much he will be able to save.

Raj you did not mention important point if you are single or married. Because your saving will be affected if you are married and your spouse is going to work or not.

My advice is *This is not right time to try for job abroad*. If you are doing advance research so that you can be prepared once job market gets stable then it's fine.

"No tax" isn't necessarily a good thing. Consider Somalia; I'm pretty sure there's no tax there at the moment, but you wouldn't want to go looking for jobs there at the moment either.

Hi Raj Vijay,

How can you conclude that Singapore has more tax? Do you exactly know what percentage of tax / tax structure in Singapore? Compare this with India and US and then come to conclusion

Moreover, Singaporeans are not happy now a days and they are thinking that 'foreign-talent' is eating up their culture and jobs.
I can sense roots of racism in Singapore. Companies in Singapore are now considering giving jobs to 'jobless Singaporeans' rather than importing someone from outside.

Anyways, try your luck.

I've just for fun looked on a jobs in Dubai website. There are 2 million subscribers and 3000 jobs and they ask money for publishing your resume. (???) Probably because other countries are affected by the recession they have lots of fortune seekers to choose from. Logically, if India's software industry was booming there would not be many engineers trying it in a nearby country. So yes, the job market in Dubai would be effected.

You consider that racist? I think almost every country seeks for the employees it does not have among its own people and would prefer giving jobs to their own inhabitants first. And so they should! I think the term racist is heavily overused.

I said that in a different context. Singaporeans complain that their buses, hotels, movie theatres, malls and trains etc are over crowded due to foreigners. And, the kind of treatment we Indians get when we visit restaurants and food courts is altogether different. Singaporeans not only complains about Indians and they also complain about people from China.

Singapore importing foreigners because that country is not producing enough babies. Its a fact!

No one has any idea but most analysts says it will start recovering from year end.

I can suggest something which is related to your current skill sets. You know Oracle, Unix, Informatica, Developer 2000 Forms and Reports. Developer 2000 forms and reports are considered outdated technologies now.
So your skill sets in job market are Oracle, Unix, Informatica.
To add to this , you can learn skills related to datawarehousing which will help you.
I would not suggest Java related skills because it will take some time for you to learn and master them.
You can still get good job in datawarehousing because big enterprise level systems need these people and there is less competition there.

By the way, a bit of topic but: They asked 90 Can $ for my subscription, and when I stopt laughing I further looked in google:

http://www.ripoffreport.com/Jobs-In-Dubai/Brokerage-Companies/Jobs-In-Dubai-Scam-and-fraud-M-6A3PP.htm

Let me put it like this: there are many people out there who want to take your money. They will offer you the world and ask for your money in advance. They say it is to cover the registration process or the cost involved.
