The Member of royal guard in the UAE

Royal guard in Dubai- After resigning from the Nepal Army at the of position junior officer, I had a big dream to join either Dubai police or Royal guard in Dubai. Although everyone has a dream for their career, there is no guarantee that everyone’s dream comes true.

What does mean the Royal Guard?

In the country whose ruler is a king, the national army has a separate regiment that mounted at the royal residence and the responsibility for the administration of the royal places.

In the middle east specifically the GCC (Gulf Co-operation council) counties, the monarchy is the most favourable choice of the ruling system for their people. The king dynasty and their ruling system is always pro for the countries citizen, that is the main reason monarchy has succeeded for the many decades to rule over the gulf continent.

Similarly, other countries such as the United kingdom, Newzealand, Switzerland and Saudi Arabia, the defence force of the United Arab Emirates also has a royal guard regiment which is evolving with various defence parameter of the royal palaces and administrative building.

There are seven emirates in the United Arab Emirates and each emirate has a king and their relatives. All the royal family members and their relatives require the protection because VIP always concerns about own security.

If the Defence forces of the UAE provides the protection for each and every relative of the Royal family it requires more member in its organization which leads the high expenditure in the military.

That could be the main reason some of the private’s companies which have a business to provide the armed and unarmed security services, started providing the ex-army and police officers as the guard to the royal family relatives.

How do the royal guard companies operate in the UAE?

Even though they are not cored part of the defense force of the United Arab Emirates the private royal guards undergo training with national defense or the UAE police forces as requires from their respective companies.

Without a doubt, the royal guards’ service provider companies have been operating in the UAE as private security companies and contractual agreement may have with the defence or police forces for providing guarding services but not to deploy in the battlefield.

The recruitment process for the royal guard in Dubai or UAE.

As I know the demand letter sent from UAE companies to foreign countries including Nepal, the recruitment process starts from your home countries. If you are already in Dubai can apply for the position as far as your experiences and qualifications meet the criteria.

The duties may be vary depending on the client’s needs but generally, you have to provide the security service or the protection service to the royal family properties or work as the bodyguard for them.

There is not any fix salary that I have found among the private royal guards because of nationality, the company size and the place where do you work, always determine your pay Cheque. Here is a figure for you to understand.

  • Low Salary per month- AED 3500
  • Average salary per month- AED 4800
