What we're about

Please be aware that we require a clear face photo (without sunglasses and goggles for men) for all members and also full and proper answers to all our questions in correct English. If you do not have a clear photo or answer the questions properly we will not approve of you. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to meeting you at one of our meetups soon!


Dubai can be a wonderful city for the globally aware expatriate. You may have however outgrown frenetic clubbing evenings with teeny boppers and loud music and are yet not ready for long quiet evenings alone at home. You may be looking to meet with compatible, well-traveled people with similar interests but diverse experiences, with the possibility of forging friendships based on deeper connections.

We are a group of over 2500 like-minded people, mainly single but we also have couples and those under 35 years of age, who prefer to socialize in relatively quiet locations where people can establish networks and friendships through interesting conversations and eloquent discussions. We also like to party and dance on occasion and so our meetups are diverse.

This is a Dubai group of 'The Expats Club' which is a global network of online socializing and networking groups. The Expats Club operates in 20 cities around the world, with over 50,000 members, through a variety of platforms including meetup.com, Facebook and our own platform at www.theexpatsclub.net (http://www.theexpatsclub.net/) and at http://www.meetup.com/pro/theexpatsclub/

We tend to have a number of groups in every city to meet the needs of many niches in the community. A number of times we combine group events so that everyone can meet each other. I hope you enjoy your membership in our groups. Please feel free to write to me at info@theexpatsclub.net or text/WhatsApp/call me on +971552829430 or +447715705005 with any comments, complaints, thoughts or suggestions. I look forward to meeting you at one of our events soon.

Please be aware that most people come to meetups and events alone. We make it our business to welcome you at the door, introduce you to others in the group and ensure that you are comfortable quickly. We are also at hand to assist if you have any issues or would like to be introduced to anyone specifically. We only ask that you are well behaved in our online and offline interactions with other members.

We also do group holidays a few times a year, when we invite members from all our groups around the world to join us at one-holiday destination. I very much hope you will join in one of those trips as you meet people from around the world (including locals who are part of our local groups) and vastly improve your enjoyment of the holiday. It is an unsurpassed experience and always a grand party!

My thanks and best regards

Dan Raj (Founder)
