The Nafis program is an initiative launched by the UAE on 13th September 2021, as part of the nation’s ‘Projects of the 50’. It was introduced with the aim of providing support to Emirati nationals in pursuing their professional career in the private sector. 

It provides support to the Emiratis by helping them to secure skilled jobs in the private sector. Companies in the private sector can register on the Nafis platform by creating an account. They can post training opportunities and job openings for those Emiratis seeking a job.
