I am planning to visit Europe in May 2017. One of the requirements in applying Schengen visa is the proof of financial support. I am currently working here in Dubai and my bank statement will come from my home country.

Will that be okay? Because I don't have savings account here in Dubai.

    You have no bank account in Dubai? How are you paid? – nkjt Feb 13 '17 at 14:50

    Your circumstances - especially lack of bank account in Dubai - should be indeed explained in details in your visa application. Otherwise there is a good chance they'd assume you work in Dubai illegally. Never assume the Consulate will guess things in your favor. – George Y. Feb 13 '17 at 23:34

The most important thing about your financial details are regular income and regular, reasonable expenditures. If you earn more than you spend, month after month for a long time, and if the cost of travel is a reasonable fraction of your annual income, things look good.
