The Emirates Cabin Crew step by step process 2017
  • Miss Terry G

    This is really insightful. Thank you. Please will you be posting Emirates recruitment for Cabin Crew in Nigeria for the 2017. I don’t want to miss a chance.

    • Paddle Your Own Kanoo

      Thank you so much for your kind comments. it’s so good to hear such amazing feedback.
      It’s an interesting question about Emirates recruitment in Nigeria. The Nigerian government has recently criticised Emirates as they allegedly don’t have very many Nigerian staff at all. As you are aware, Emirates aren’t recruiting any new Cabin Crew at the moment. However, we’ll be keeping a really close eye on this and will post more details as soon as we have them.

  • Oh my goodness .. this information is so usefull… You won’t believe but I am felling glad to get aware about the current status of Emirates because , even I was depressed as I was applying for the job and no response was coming !! But now I am felling happy . 😉 and its really insightful . thank you so much . please will you be replying Emirate cabin crew requirements in India ?!.. Please please please …. I just don’t want to miss the chance , and I guess 2017 cabin crew (Emirates ) test was done during the month of January ??? If so please let me know next requirement test dates .

    • Paddle Your Own Kanoo

      Hi there, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. It’s really great to hear that you’ve enjoyed this post. Okay, so Emirates recruitment is still not active and the airline hasn’t given any indication of when that might change. The airline recently updated its recruitment website which gave us hope that it might be soon BUT the latest we hear is that the wait could be a little longer still. As soon as we hear anything we’ll be sure to post an update.

  • Actually I can wait till 2019 . but my question is that requirements test takes place in country Indian city Delhi or not ?

  • One more question , is diploma or graduation necessary for being Emirates cabin crew , or just 10+2 study is enough?

    • Paddle Your Own Kanoo

      Hello once again. No worries. In reply to your first question, all applications will be made online. We will then have to wait and see which countries and cities Emirates choose to visit to hold Assessment Day’s once recruitment restarts. This will largely depend on what nationalities, Emirates needs to recruit first.
      In terms of qualifications, you need some form of High School qualification. This is normally awarded at 16 years of age dependent on the country in which you went to school. Emirates can be quite flexible as long as you have shown you have a level of education up to High School standard.

  • OK . so it largely depends on which nationality cabin crew Emirates wants . if they need Indians , they will prefer India for there assessment day . right ? But are there any percent of Indians in Emirates cabin crew ? and did they ever had any assessment day in India ? And I am an Indian . for example if they had their assessment day in Europe , then I need to catch a flight to Europe ?

    • Paddle Your Own Kanoo

      Very much so. The good news, however, is that Indians are one of the most represented Cabin Crew nationalities at Emirates – after all, India is the airline’s biggest market. Emirates has held Assessment Day’s in India many times before and I have no doubt they will be coming back to India soon after recruitment restarts. But there wouldn’t be anything stopping you from travelling overseas to another country where Emirates is holding an AD.

  • Question

    Hello, Thank you for keeping us updated and I hope you don’t mind answering the following questions if you know. I am in New Zealand male and wondered if Emirates hires New Zealanders? Also, do you know if there is a maximum age that would make it difficult to be hired…I am 32? Also, is it harder for males to get hired or are they looking for 50/50 male and females?

    • Paddle Your Own Kanoo

      Hello there and thank you so much for taking the time to leave a message. And no, I definitely don’t mind answering any questions as best as I can. Emirates have plenty of New Zealanders in their Cabin Crew team and there’s no reason to believe this will change in the future (although they normally favour certain nationalities depending on their needs at the recruitment stage). Your age ‘shouldn’t’ be a problem – Emirates doesn’t have an official upper age limit and plenty of people of your age have landed a job with Emirates – but it is less common. Finally, ladies are favoured over male candidates. I don’t know the exact ratio but again it will depend on their needs at the time. Any additional skills or languages spoken will give you an added advantage. I hope this is of some help.

  • Senzy Ndlovu

    Hello , I’m from South Africa and I would really love to join
    Emirates cabin crew , I hope it won’t be too late by the time they
    Start recruiting as I’ve just turned 30.

    • Paddle Your Own Kanoo

      Hi there,
      Try not to worry too much about your age. 30 is plenty young enough to still get the job with Emirates – Highlight how youthful, fit and healthy you are – but also how your maturity and depth and breadth of experience is a fantastic asset.

  • Crystal

    hello there! thank you so much for information its good for me to prepare my photos from now. i have a question a few days ago maybe around 10 days ago when i entered emirates career website it was different and now it is changed , and i could see the online application process which i could apply , but now new website shows there s no cabin crew now , am i late or 2017 emirates cabin crew reqruitment not yet started ?

    • Paddle Your Own Kanoo

      Hello there. Don’t worry. You haven’t missed anything. Although the careers website has been updated, emirates aren’t recruiting at the moment. We are still waiting to hear further information for when they might start accepting applications again.

  • Ganiyah

    Thank you for the information. Please kindly notify when emirate is recruiting cabin crew from Nigeria. Thanks.

    • Paddle Your Own Kanoo

      Hi! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. Unfortunately, Emirates aren’t recruiting at the moment but once they start again, they will only be accepting applications via their careers website. We still don’t know when the application process will start again.

  • LittleLightningGirl

    Hi there and big thank you for the useful and detailed article !
    Hence I have a question concerning the recruitment of experienced staff. I wanted to confirm with you about the so called “agreement ” among Middle eastern airlines that says for example that Qatar Airways former cabin crew have to wait one year before applying for Emirates . Is this still applicable ??

    • PYOK Admin

      Hi there. That’s a really good question and I’m not quite sure how it will work in practice now that the UAE has severed diplomatic ties with Qatar. Unfortunately, neither Emirates or Etihad has every publicly confirmed or denied this longstanding rumour. However, I do know of at least one ex-Qatar Airways FA who was hired by Etihad within 6-months of quitting QR. Just to be clear – the agreement was always to prevent Qatar Airways staff from running off the Emirates or Etihad due to issues they had in retaining staff at the moment. So, going the other way or between Etihad and Emirates isn’t a problem.

  • chirinemk

    hello there, i cant find an application in the website. how do i apply??

    • PYOK Admin

      Thank you for stopping by! Unfortunately, Emirates are still not recruiting any new Cabin Crew at the moment and it may be some time before they start the application process again. As soon as we get further information we’ll post it on the website. It might also be a good idea to sign up for email job alerts on the Emirates careers website.
      I hope this is of some help.

  • Akua

    Hi!Thank you for the information but i can’t seem to find the email job alerts on the updated Emirates careers website.Any help?

    • PYOK Admin

      Hi there. You need to log in to your account and then navigate to Your Account. You’ll then see an option called ‘Correspondence’ which will allow you to set email alerts. I hope this helps!

  • Drusilla Ibo

    Hi! I was involved in an automobile accident 5 months ago and it broke my front tooth in half. i cant afford to pay a skilled dentist now but could i still apply? also I’m Nigerian, does this reduce the my chances of scaling through? thanks

    • PYOK Admin

      Hi there. You’ve probably seen the controversy about Emirates recruiting Nigerians as the government as criticised the airline about this in the past. Emirates insist they do hire Nigerian cabin crew although it’s true to say they are under-represented. Of course, Emirates aren’t recruiting anyone at the moment so it will be interesting to see what happens they reopen recruitment. Although Emirates does offer dental services for successful candidates you will need to be in a position to smile without the damaged tooth being too obvious.

      • Drusilla Ibo

        Thanks a lot! your quick response is sincerely appreciated.

  • danayt gebremichael

    Hi:thank you for the information but I have a question is it possible to apply for emirate even though currently I am working as a cabin Crew for another African airlines

    • PYOK Admin

      Yes. Absolutely! Emirates accept applications from candidates with previous Cabin Crew experience and there are plenty of serving EK Crew who switched to Emirates direct from another airline. You’ll have plenty of skills and experience that will be invaluable but you also need to prove you are absolutely committed to Emirates – their brand, ethos and way of doing service, etc.

      • danayt gebremichael

        thank you again.so do I have to apply now or after the vacancies are out…

        • PYOK Admin

          Unfortunately, Emirates aren’t accepting any cabin crew applications at the moment. We hope the process will open up in the nex few months. We’ll post information as soon as we receive it.

  • nishma

    hi have they started accepting online applications already?

    • PYOK Admin

      Hi there. Sorry about the delay. No, unfortunately, Emirates aren’t accepting online applications at the moment. We’ll update the website as soon as we get any further information!

  • SyHoun Chhun

    Hi, I am Cambodian and I’m seeking for a cabin crew job with Emirates. Emirates used to announced to hire a cabin crew from Cambodia since 2008, but later on, it is seen there is no updated announcement of hiring from my country areas anymore . so, I wondering how could I join emirate cabin crew group? and is there any challenges if I apply for assessment day to other country? Thanks.

    • PYOK Admin

      Hello there. The bad news is that it’s not just Cambodia where Emirates isn’t recruiting anymore – the airline has a worldwide recruitment freeze. Emirates stopped recruitment last December and we still don’t know when recruitment will restart. However, the good news is, when recruitment reopens you can only apply online. That means you don’t have to wait until Emirates visit your country! I hope this is of some help. Cross finger Emirates will restart cabin crew recruitment soon!

      • SyHoun Chhun

        Thank you so much. I just heard Emirate will open the flight route between Dubai-Phnom Penh -Dubai in this early July. so, hopefully it will be a chance for recruiting some Cambodian. And I’m wearing glass, will it be a cause?

        • PYOK Admin

          Yes. Absolutely – Emirates recruit crew based on the needs of the route network so their expansion with an additional Cambodia route could be a positive thing for you! It’s not a problem if you need eyesight correction but in uniform, you’ll be expected to wear lenses.

  • Kouao-N’Guessan Marie-Guylaine

    Hi! I am from Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast), and would like to know if Emirates also do hire cabin crew from Cote d’Ivoire because i have never heard about any assessment day in the country

    • PYOK Admin

      Nor have we! Unfortunately, even an airline like Emirates can’t visit every country to hold an Assessment Day but that’s not to say that there aren’t cabin crew from Cote d-Ivoire working for Emirates. Once the new application process is up and running you would have to select an Assessment Day in a country most convenient for you. Travelling costs would be at your own expense. I hope this helps!

      • Kouao-N’Guessan Marie-Guylaine

        Yeah thank you!

  • Deniz

    Hi. Still no online applications accepted?
    Found this while browsing–>National Cabin Crew Programme (U.A.E. Nationals Only) -160000UY

    ..So should we already create an account ?

  • Ben

    Hi there,
    First of all thank you for the detailed article and for being very responsive to comments and question.

    I am French and currently living in Spain. Do you know if Emirates ever conducted assessment days in the Barcelona region and if yes, do you think I could attend this session even though this is not in my home country?

    • PYOK Admin

      Hello Ben,
      Emirates have conducted Open Day’s and Assessment Day’s in several Spanish cities (including Barcelona) in the past. It’s likely that Emirates will visit Spain again in the future. You don’t have to be from the country in which the Assessment Day is held. When the recruitment process restarts you will have to submit your application online. Once shortlisted you will be able to choose to attend an AD in whatever country is most convenient for you.
      I hope this helps!

  • Anila Afroz

    Me, Anila Afroz 19 from remote area Chitral Pakistan desirous of being a cabin crew in Emirates. Have recently completed my higher secondary (12 years College studies). Indeed having most of the required features in me, daily Check the employment in Emirates and hope to apply on line if and when Emirates reopens the employment.
    Is it possible for me to apply with the given age and qualification as a female candidate.

    • PYOK Admin

      Hi there Anila,
      For all Middle East airline’s you have to be at least 21 years of age when you join the company. Unfortunately, this means you are a little too young to apply for Emirates at the moment but you don’t have to wait until you turn 21 before submitting an application. The recruitment process can take some time and they allow for this with younger applicants. I know this is disheartening but remember that Emirates aren’t recruiting anyone at the moment so just make sure you keep working to get great experiences and skills that will help you in the future.

    • PYOK Admin

      Hello Anila, I’m so sorry it’s taken so long to get back to you. Unfortunately, the minimum age for cabin crew at most Middle East airline’s including Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airways is 21 years old. Having said that, some airline’s will accept candidates if their 21st birthday is coming up within 6 months. At the moment, both Emirates and Etihad are not recruiting cabin crew. We expect the process to restart close to the end of the year.

  • Gae Ana Nirtta

    Hi everybody! How can I find an Open Day in Frankfurt? I would like to apply for Emirates. Thanks, Anna

    • PYOK Admin

      Sorry about the delay in getting back to you. Unfortunately, Emirates still aren’t recruiting any cabin crew. We expect the application process to open later this year – and then only via online applications. We’ll post more details as soon as we hear anything.

  • alicia

    From Cali, I was just wondering would there be a chance that the location of the assessment day would be in southern California?

    • PYOK Admin

      Hi there! Well, despite some setbacks, the U.S. is still an important destination for Emirates – and they’ll certainly be looking to build their route network in the region in the coming years. That means the airline will be looking for native American cabin crew as well. Of course, everything is up in the air at the moment – We think the recruitment process will restart close to the end of the year but nothing is yet confirmed. Once Emirates start accepting application again, we’ll have a better idea of where they plan to conduct Assessment Day’s. Emirates has visited California (as well as other locations throughout the U.S.) in the past and it’s likely they’ll return at some point.
      I hope this helps.

  • Mandip

    Hello everyone,
    I’m 24 and I’m living in Spain Barcelona, and I’m a strugler I’ already have done my Cabin Crew Licence in Spain and Right. I woould like to know about how many times Emirates opens Invitation venue last time was in 2014 and I attended but I failed in first day..I think because I was very young that time, there will be any other time Invitation venue?? if there will be so Emirates will send me invitation again? or tehere will problem because I attended and failed in past?

    Please could you give me a answer, in Urgent?? and every year Emirates has a Open days,recruitment prosses , invitation,,,,, in spain??

    • Johnny

      hey there! Parece que no entendiste el post, porque están explicando que ya no habrán open days, emirates ha cambiado su manera de reclutar personal para tripulante de cabina. Ahora todo sera por internet, tendras que enviar algunos documentos que estan detallados arriba, ademas de un video para que puedas ser evaluado o evaluada y luego te puedan invitar a un assesment day y es ahi donde tu podras escoger la fecha y lugar que mejor te acomode para las entrevistas. Tambien menciona que por ahora Emirates no esta reclutando personal, lo mas problable es que recien a partir de finales de este año 2017 retomen el proceso. Yo te recomiendo que vayas perfeccionando tu ingles, para que puedas tener exito en la entevista, te deseo muchos exitos.

  • Teresa

    Hello! I am of age (21), live in Dubai and would like to know whether or not Emirates is accepting applications at the moment! Thank you.

    • PYOK Admin

      Hello Teresa,
      I’m so sorry about the delay getting back to you! Unfortunately, Emirates aren’t accepting applications for cabin crew at the moment (apart from UAE nationals). Emirates stopped recruitment in December 2016 and we hope they will start their process again soon. However, depending on who you believe this might still be some months away. We trust this to be around October or November but will update the website as soon as we hear more news.
      I hope this helps!

  • Мөѕнїця Яднмди

    hey i am 19 years old .live in bangladesh i would like to know that can get this job in bangladesh

    • PYOK Admin

      Thanks for your message. Unfortunately, we will have to wait until Emirates start the recruitment again process before we know whether any Assessment Day’s will be held in Bangladesh. At the moment we don’t have any further news but we’ll be sure to update the website as soon as we hear something new.

  • Nathan Peter Paul

    Hey, I am 22 years old and from India. Are Emirates expected to be hiring over here at some point of 2017?

    • PYOK Admin

      Hi Nathan, that’s a really good question – unfortunately, we can’t offer an answer at the moment. We are confident that Emirates will start their recruitment process by the end of the year but whether they hold an Assessment Day in India is another question altogether. However, India is a really important market for Emirates so there’s every chance they will be looking to recruit Indian cabin crew.

      • Nathan Peter Paul

        Great! Just one more question, would I be able to check this website for updates on the recruitment processes not only of Emirates but other airlines as well?

        • PYOK Admin

          Of course! If we get an update, we’ll post it on the website. We try to keep up to date with the recruitment practices of as many airlines as possible but primarily focus on Middle East, Australian and North America.

  • Elena Ortega

    Hi, do you think there’s any chance for someone from Manila, Philippines to get accepted? I always check back on your page to check if there’s an update regarding recruitment. Thank you for all the helpful info on your site 🙂

    • PYOK Admin

      Hello Elena,
      Thank you for your comment. At one time, Filipino’s were one of the top nationalities for Emirates cabin crew. We did report on a rumour earlier this year that Emirates had decided only to hire Cabin Service Attendants (responsible for the First Class shower and spa) from the Philipines but that was a long time ago. Sadly, we won’t know for sure until the recruitment process gets underway. Lots of things are being discussed but everything is subject to change to the point at which hiring really starts.
      I hope this helps.

  • yasmine

    I can’t find my comment anywhere so again, if I want to apply in 2018 and my passport expires in 2019, will that be a problem during the recuitement process please? thank you.

    • PYOK Admin

      Hello there. Oh, I’m really sorry – not quite sure what went wrong there! On to your question – No, that’s not a problem at all. You’ll be able to apply for a new passport at your country’s consulate or embassy close to the 6-month expiry mark. For cabin crew, your embassy will allow you to keep your current passport. The transition is very easy. I hope this answers your question and apologies for the problem you faced posting your question.

      • yasmine

        great! thx a lot 🙂

  • Dorcas Afua Sarpomaa

    Hello
    Am Dorcas from Ghana and I would like to know if I can apply for job with Emirates no matter the country it is when they start recruiting? And please will Emirates recruit in Ghana? Thank you.

    • PYOK Admin

      Hello Dorcas,
      Yes, you will be able to apply for Emirates cabin crew, no matter what country you are from, when recruitment restarts. Unfortunately, we don’t know whether Emirates will hold any Assessment Day’s in Ghana as this will depend on the airline’s needs once the recruitment process restarts. I hope this helps!

      • Dorcas Afua Sarpomaa

        Thank you very much

  • ilovestrawberry

    Hello. I am from Philippines. Will there be any recruitment day in Philippines? Thank you.

    • PYOK Admin

      Thank you for your message.
      Unfortunately, we don’t yet know whether Emirates will hold Assessment Day’s once they restart recruitment. In the past, Filipino cabin crew have been really important for Emirates so there’s every chance that they will visit the Philipines to hold a recruitment event. For now, however, we’ll have to wait and see. If we hear any more news, we’ll be sure to post it straight away.

  • Asmae Zejly

    Hello,my name is Asmaa and am living in dubai i would like to know when will be the assessement day in UAE as i wont able to find any online informations about it.thanks!

    • PYOK Admin

      Hello Asmaa,
      At the moment, Emirates aren’t recruiting cabin crew. They officially stopped recruitment in December 2016 (although many people who passed the Final Interview going back to around May and June had their job offers rescinded as well). We expect recruitment to start in the second half of this year although an exact month or date is still unknown. We hope to share some more positive news with readers soon.
      I hope this is of help. Keep checking back as we’ll be sure to share any updates.

      • Asmae Zejly

        Thank you very much for your answer .

  • Nikola

    Hello,
    I am from Czech Republic but I live in England at the moment and I would like to ask If it would be better to apply from my own country or from England. And also what are the chances for someone from Czech. Thank you

    • PYOK Admin

      Hi Nikola,
      Cabin crew from the Czech Republic are well represented at Emirates so your nationality shouldn’t be a barrier in this case. Of course, Emirates do select crew based on what nationalities they need at the time but we won’t know whether this could be an issue until they start recruitment again. As the application process is being moved to online only it shouldn’t matter where you apply for the position. However, historically, Emirates have conducted a lot of Assessment Day’s in the UK so this might be an advantage for you.

      • Nikola

        Thank you very much for your reply!

  • Lana Larissa

    Hello,
    I’d like to apply for Emirates cabin crew, I’m german.
    Unfortunately I cant find any possibility to apply – on the site of Emirates there is “no search result” for jobs. Someone help?
    Thanks in advance!

    • PYOK Admin

      Hi Lana,
      Last December, Emirates suspended cabin crew recruitment and they haven’t yet announced when they will start accepting applications again. A few months ago the Emirates careers website was updated and redesigned but they haven’t made it clear that they aren’t actually recruiting at the moment. However, we expect recruitment to begin again in the next few months – although we’ll provide an update as soon as we hear anything. I hope this is of assistance!

  • Melissa

    Hello!
    I would love to apply for Emirates cabin crew!
    What is the maximum age limit?

    Thank you.

    Melissa

    • PYOK Admin

      Good question Melissa,
      Emirates don’t advertise a maximum age limit and if you were to ask them, they would say there is no upper age limit. However – we know that the older you get, the more difficult it becomes to land a job with Emirates. Generally, you shouldn’t find any barriers up to age 30. It becomes slightly harder each year thereafter. That being said, there are plenty of cabin crew who started with the company aged 34, 35 and even 36.
      It will be interesting to see whether the new recruitment rules have any effect on this when the hiring process restarts.
      No matter what your age, it is always worth submitting an application – even if you’re not successful on the first, second or third attempt.
      The very best of luck!

  • Angie Belle Whosoever

    Good day I am from South-Africa and i want to apply for Cabin Crew. how do I go about the process? Where do I apply? Is there a website or something?
    Please advise
    Thank you kindly

    • PYOK Admin

      Hello Angie. I’m so sorry for the delay in replying to you. The official Emirates Group careers website and cabin crew page can be found here: http://www.emiratesgroupcar
      Once recruitment restarts, applications will only be accepted through this site.
      However, Emirates aren’t recruiting new cabin crew at the moment. We expect the process to restart in the next few months. As soon as we hear further information, we’ll be posting updates. I hope this helps!

  • Pauline Estallo

    Hi. Thank you so much, your website has been very useful! Question, I had jobs in the past (I worked as a waitress/bartender, receptionist for a small resort, tutored our neighbor’s kids on weekends) but don’t have certificates for them because they were partime or less formal jobs, would it be fine if I include them as well in my work history? I’m currently working in customer svc and I could provide an employment certificate for when needed but I think these past jobs will help as well when I get to apply for emirates. Thanks in advance, I’d appreciate your response.

    • PYOK Admin

      Hi Pauline,
      Yes, this won’t be a problem at all. You’ll need a reference for your current (or last) job but otherwise, it’s incredibly rare for Emirates to check any other references. You might be asked to provide an address or phone number for past jobs but the recruiters understand this isn’t always possible. If you feel this experience will highlight your skills, then definitely include it on your resume!

  • Sophie

    Hi there, do you know if Emirates recruits Americans? I’m from the U.S.A. and I would love to be a cabin crew with Emirates, but I’ve never heard or know of any Americans being hired as flight attendants with them.
    Thank you

    • PYOK Admin

      Hello Sophie,
      Absolutely! There are both American and Canadian citizens working as cabin crew for Emirates – early last year, the airline did hold some Assessment Day’s in North America although they were never as common as those held in Europe. The U.S. is an important market for Emirates and recruiters hire cabin crew who reflect their passenger profile. Once Emirates start hiring again, I would highly recommend submitting an application.

      • Sophie

        Awesome, thanks for your answer! I also don’t live near a major US city, so I probably cannot attend an open call. Will submitting my application online give me an equal chance as someone who goes to an open call? And should my photos be professionally done, or can I take them myself/ask a friend to take them for me?

        • PYOK Admin

          Hi Sophie,
          Unfortunately, Emirates aren’t recruiting at the moment – we hope this to change by the end of the year and will post any updates as soon as we receive them, Once recruitment restarts, Emirates won’t be holding anymore Open Day’s so you’ll need to initially submit an online application. Once you’ve been shortlisted, you’ll be invited to an Assessment Day at a city of your choice. This should hopefully make the recruitment process a lot fairer and transparent. I hope this helps!

  • Stacey

    Hi! My name is Stacey. I’m from Tanzania. I was wondering if there will be recruitment in Tanzania this year? I’m currently in Sweden for holiday and will be heading back home in four weeks time. While I’m still here, would it be possible for me to make an appointment to the headquarters of Emirates in Sweden and see if I stand a chance of getting a job as cabin crew while I’m here? If it’s possible, could you please guide me to the right contacts. Thank you

  • Manish Kanish

    Hi, I’m Hirish from mauritius. I want to apply for cabin crew post any suggestion how to proceed. i possed a cabin crew certificate awarded by IATA .

    • PYOK Admin

      Hello Hirish,
      Is it Emirates that you are specifically looking at?
      As you are probably aware, Emirates aren’t recruiting new cabin crew at the moment but we hope this will change in the next few months. Your qualification will be really good but to maximise your chances make sure you work really hard to highlight the desired ‘qualities’ that Emirates is looking for in their cabin crew. Spend a lot of time perfecting your resume and if you find any gaps in your skills or experience make efforts to gain those skills – such as volunteering or taking more courses.
      We’ll know more about the recruitment process soon and we’ll post more information at the earliest opportunity.

      Hello Dinda,

      Yes, absolutely! Although Emirates aren’t recruiting any new cabin crew at the moment, when recruitment does restart you will be able to apply for this role. Emirates sponsor people from all over the world to work as cabin crew in Dubai – your nationality is not a barrier.

  • Bouchra Cherkaoui

    Hello, My name is Bouchra Cherkaoui from Morocco, I am now in Dubai UAE holding a 1 month visit visa, My question is … If I can join in cabin crew? Because I am interested to work as flight attendant.

    • PYOK Admin

      Hello Bouchra. I hope you’re having a having a great time in Dubai and have found your feet in this amazing city. Unfortunately, options to become cabin crew in Dubai are very limited at the moment. Emirates aren’t currently hiring (expected to restart by the end of the year) and flydubai have stopped accepting new applications for their recruitment process. Etihad, just down the road in Abu Dhabi won’t start recruitment until next year.
      Once recruitment restarts, all three airline’s will only accept online applications and then visit cities around the world to conduct Assessment Day’s. However, whilst you’re waiting it might be an idea to seek employment and sponsorship somewhere else in Dubai. One word of caution – Getting another type of job at Emirates isn’t any guarantee that you can transfer to the cabin crew position once recruitment restarts. The very best of luck!

  • Jasmine Loh

    Hello there, can I still attend the Qatar open day if i’ve not been invited? Thank you very much in advance! Cheers!

    • PYOK Admin

      Hello Jasmine. Yes, absolutely! Always check the Qatar Airways careers website first but nearly every Open Day is open to all to attend. You can find the dates, times and locations on the recruitment website. Make sure you take the required documentation with you!

      • Jasmine Loh

        Oh, I meant I submitted an online application and I was told that I’ve not been invited. Hence I assume I failed the application? Thanks for your quick response!

        • PYOK Admin

          Hello Jasmine, sorry for the confusion. Yes, you can still attend an Open Day. Whether you are selected to go through to the AD will be the decision of the recruiter on the day – not your online application.
