Dubai Population by Nationalities

There is ever increasing population in the world currently. It is estimated that by 2050 the population will be doubled on the rate at which it is increasing. There are more than 150 nations in the world and every one of them is not same in the area so there are different number of people in each country. This means that every country has its own capacity for accommodation of people. But there are some countries which are having high percentage of people of different nationality. These countries includes the Arabian gulf countries like Saudi Arabia, UAE, Oman etc. Other than these there is America, UK and some other European states.People are fond of travelling different places to see different cultures, meeting different types of people and learning different languages. But there are some countries where you will find people from more than 30 countries. Dubai is one of these places on the Earth due its mesmerizing look and job opportunities; it has an overwhelming accommodation of different nationalists. You will find Pakistanis, Indians, Bengalis, Indonesians and many others in Dubai. Arabs do not provide nationality to the foreigners and to those who is not among them even though he or she is born in any region of Arab.So these nationalists live on the basis of their stay visa called Hikama which needs renewal after a certain period of time but this type of visa is not applicable in UAE, it only refers to Saudi Arabia and Oman. For having a stay in Dubai you must only have to apply for simple visa.
