How can I  find a Job in Dubai from Uganda?

I have been applying for many Jobs posted on this website, however, most of the employers who reply to me say they want someone already in Dubai, UAE.
Other employers replied to me asking for my Dubai visit visa validation.
Currently, I have problems with money and I can’t afford to buy a ticket and Visit visa to Dubai.

Is there a way I can get a Job in Dubai from Uganda?

There some agencies in Uganda that advertise Jobs in Dubai but they’re also very expensive, I can’t afford.

Is there a way I can apply for Jobs in Dubai directly from Uganda?

What is the possibility for a Ugandan to find a good in Dubai?

Is there anyone who can recommend a good and cheap agency that can help me find a Job in Dubai from Uganda?

It Is  amazing for any Ugandan to Work in Dubai, I  have only worked here for 4years but I really love it, the first 2 years were hectic because the agency in Uganda lied to me that they had found me a customer service Job but on reaching here I was expected to be a cleaner in Dubai Mall. I was patient and I kept applying for jobs of my qualification and now I work as a sales executive in Sharjah.

What you need to know about finding a Job in Dubai from Uganda with A recruitment agency 

Many recruitment agencies in Uganda are fake, very expensive and have no connections with the companies  in UAE. be careful before you pay your money.

Recruitment agencies in Uganda ask for about 3 to 5 millions Ugandan shillings to find help find you a job in Dubai ( about 3-4000 AED)

Most Recruitment agencies have connections with labour Recruitment agents, not Companies, these agents are especially from Ajman, these agents actually deal with recruiting maids for local homes but in Uganda, many girls are lied to and they only find out that they will work as maids when they reach here.

For anyone to be recruited a maid from Uganda, You don’t need to pay anything, your sponsor pays for the ticket and all the visa processing fees plus the agency service charge but in Uganda still, thses girls are charged around 3 to 5 millions Ugandan shillings.

Be very careful with recruitment agents in Uganda most of the are scam.

Below are some agencies you can trust to help you find a Job in Dubai but trust me their very expensive and most of the Jobs are low paying ranging from cleaning and security.
