Introduction / History
The number of Nepalis in the United Arab Emirates has been about the same in recent years. Most of them live in Dubai--mainly in construction work. Many live in Abu Dhabi.

About half of the Nepali workers in the UAE are in construction work. Some are security guards and are looked on as being reliable. Others are hospitality workers. Most of the Nepalese here are Madhesi people.

There is not an embassy in Dubai. Consular services are in Abu Dhabi.

Prayer Points
* Pray that God will give them dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel materials and the internet will lead them to salvation.
