More undersecretary for human resources affairs Khalil Al Khoori said that new directives are made to ensure the balanced rights of both parties engaged in work relationships and at the same time cross-check whether the private company follows the Labour Relations law and its executive regulations.

He also stressed the UAE labor market’s productivity, competitiveness, and attractiveness. The ministry also focuses on the continuous and sustainable development of the business industry and efforts are made to improve the infrastructure of the buildings to bring the UAE to the top of the economy of world. 

The resolution also authorized administrative suspension for any company that fails to follow the rule and provided that it violated any provisions of Federal Decree-Law No. 33 of 2021. And the resolution cancels both Ministerial Resolution No. 851 of 2001 and Ministerial Resolution No. 703 of 2013 and its amendments.

The announcement indicates that no need to obtain a work permit from the ministry if the foreign worker employs in the same profession, in any of the branches of the company owned by the same employer, and licensed to practice the same activity. If the work permit is obtained from the ministry with relevant regulations, the permit is allowed to a foreign worker in any other company owned by the sample employer (not a branch) even if the worker is not registered on it. 

The MoHRE said that in case any company fails to comply with the procedures, it is considered a violation of cabinet resolution No.21 of 2020 regarding service fee and administrative fines and their amendments. Until the company doesn’t pay the fine the suspension will be continued. 

The visa rules are aimed to improve the quality of life and make the experience of living, working, and investing in the UAE pleasant and happy. The authorities focused on discovering more about the opportunities in various fields and attracting people and inviting them to be part of the development.

There are no special provisions for lower-income and lower-skilled workers to secure special visas. The primary aim was to attract young talent and skilled professionals and recent graduates from the world’s top 500 universities. The abolishment of sponsors or hosts for a visit visa will be a big step to bring young individuals to the UAE and explore new opportunities.
