  1. Wow. That’s good. But, I have a very sad information that Dubai Taxi is no more hiring Pakistani Drivers. While Indians and other nationalities can still apply. I visited Privilege labour recruitment office# M-11 Abu hail center, Deira, Dubai. On 22Oct. They informed me that Dubai Taxi is no more hiring any Pakistanis for Taxi driving. But, other nationalities can apply.
