you never gonna have kids? Don’t lie sxb. If you make 3 times more than you gonna want to have kids. Then you will fall into that category and your kids will prolly resent you or you gonna have to decide to raise them in an adaan country where you have citizenship or in that Arab country 😂😂🤦‍♀️
They would still qualify for the a western citizenship since North American passports are given at birth. How would they resent me for making more money? Also I would probably live in a western compound anyway.

They don’t like Somalis cus we are allies with Qatar and turkey.
Even before Farmajo presidency they still were discriminating Somalis treating the Somali passport as a toilet paper. Turks live in UAE, their celebrities taking over the food industry, their citizens travel to Turkey all the time, why are Somalis disliked so much? Somalis are seen as useless ppl from a failed state that’s all. We don’t have a good image.

I see. I don’t even like the uae. Qatar is the leader of all those camel herders. Qatar and the Omani and Kuwaiti peeps the rest rub off weird on me.

we Somalis have a bad image cus it’s not in our dna to integrate in foreign cultures. We gotta fix our country ASAP or our minds will eventually break.
 
It has everything to do with Palestine. After they bowed down to Israel, they also halted visas to mostly Muslim countries. No doubt to attract more Israelis to UAE. How pathetic.



The reason the above case is interesting is because she is a British citizen born and raised in London. Despite that, they said they wont accept her because she is Somali.
 
Lol why she’s crying? Really....seriously over a blood job?!? I’m crying nonstop kullaha. Lol she should look at it as blessing in disguise, who wants to work for those racist arse jahil Arabs!?! There’s a reason why we don’t like them much.
Definitely a blessing. I cant understand her overreaction either... crying nonstop? What?

I think she’s capping tbh. Knowing uae since I live there they don’t treat you based off ur ethnicity more based off what passport ur holding. If you got western passport ur treated good there. It baffles me cause tons of British Somalis move to the khaleej for jobs no problem. She probably just salty that she got rejected for a job. Nothing to do with being Somali or supporting Palestinians which is even more ridiculous

From the tone of the email and the location of the school, I get the impression it was one of those lower end schools run by foreigners (Indians) who are notorious for discriminating based on ethnicity. American School of Dubai or the other first rate British and Canadian schools would never behave this way.

Either way, I believe running to Twitter to air out grievances isn’t the right thing to do. Also, I think there’s some information missing and she wanted to gain sympathy and support. In short, I’m not buying what she’s selling. UAE doesn’t care about your ethnicity, just about what passport you carry.
 
Sadly this relates to N&N politics, throughout history UAE have somewhat been an ally to Somalia/Somalis, they continued to recognise our passports, donated millions to our country, allowed our students scholarships, unfortunately the somali government allied with Qatar who have contributed nothing to somalis/somalia and have actually killed Somalis within Somalia.

on that note I hope being from Puntland makes a difference when seeking personal gains from the UAE :farole:
 
Why not include Ethiopia as well then?
Maybe because there are not many Somalis from galbeed applying for visas to the UAE. In the case of Kenya, there are a lot of Somalis from Kenya traveling to the middle East or trying to relocate there. Remember Kenya has always been the immigration hub for most Somali business people. I am sure a large proportion of Somalis seeking UAE Visas hold a Kenyan passport.
 
Weird. I'm a Somali with a Somali passport here in the UAE where I was born and raised and they've always given preference to Somalis with British passports. One of my cousins just recently came here to escape the UK for a while and she's just visiting. No problems. Same goes for an aunt of mine and, even more importantly, an uncle of mine who was born in Somalia but who has a British passport is a business partner of mine out of the Sharjah Airport Free Zone and they totally give him preference over my pops and I who have Somali passports and recently issued him a visa and everything real easy. They mostly just stonewall and trouble Somali passport holders like me but never people who hold western passports. Strange story. Never heard of such a case.
 
The whole news doesn't make sense. There must be some other reason. I know quite a few Somalis who are British citizens and they work in the UAE in many professions.

There must be another reason.
 
Strange, my relative was allowed to work there as a software developer and never faced any sort of rejection due to him being Somali
