Filipinas in Dubai

Like in any poor country the people have the dream of going somewhere else where they can earn money to help support themselves and their family.

Since Filipina women are usually pretty good with English they have more opportunities to work abroad than women from other countries in Asia do.

With the growth of the city over the last ten years they really needed to get new workers in and that is why you find so many Filipinas in Dubai now.

With all of the tourists coming in they needed English speaking workers at hotels and restaurants.  Filipinas will work for relatively cheap wages and are very good at customer relations because they are always happy.


Filipinas in Dubai actually got taken advantage of very badly when they first started going there.  Many horror stories of not getting paid what they were told, and even holding their passports hostage.

But things have been cleaned up since then and now many Filipinas in Dubai are quite happy with their jobs.  I know quite a few who want to try and go there…. but I always tell them they may be better off somewhere like Australia or Singapore if they can find a way to get there.

Currently there are 450,000 Filipinos (meaning men and women) in Dubai.  That makes up 21% of the cities population.

I Know If I was in Dubai

I would be hitting on every Pinay that I saw.  I guess that’s not surprising since that’s what I do in the Phil’s also, but in a really expensive city where the local women will be hard to get and the hookers are expensive I am sure the Pinays have to be the best option.

They are also probably really bored because I doubt they can afford to do many of the fun things available in Dubai.  And they also may be lonely being so far away from their families.

I have received messages on PinaLove and AsianDating from girls in Dubai before so I know they are active on the dating sites.  They may not be willing to show interest to you at their work, but online where no one else will know I bet they can be quite active.

In doing some research on this I came across some message boards that had guys talking about the Filipina women in Dubai.

Many of the same things I have mentioned about the Pinays here hold true for the Pinays in Dubai.  They always want to bring their friends along.

They say they need to ‘borrow’ money for emergencies or late rent.  I am sure they aren’t all like that, but it’s not surprising at all that some are.

If you will be trying to get with Filipinas in Dubai I would suggest doing the same things that work in the Philippines.  Be kind, polite, and smile a lot.  Treat her like your friend.  Then when you get her alone make your move.

Another good option to find a Filipina girlfriend in Dubai is to sign up to Filipino Cupid and see if any girls message you when they’re in town and horny.
