Arabic is the official language in United Arab Emirates, therefore it is official language of Dubai, but Urdu, English, Farsi and Hindi and are also widely spoken. Malayalam and Punjabi are often heard languages in Dubai’s streets.

The official religion in Dubai is Sunni Islam, but all non-Muslim groups can practice their religion freely. Main minority religions are Sikhism, Hinduism and Christianity.

The government of UAE does not allow permanent residence to foreigners. But all foreigners can purchase and own properties in Dubai, so almost all of Dubai’s businesses are run partly or completely by foreigners.
