NEw UAE viSA To bE iNTrodUcEd SooN
Earlier in June, the UAE Cabinet announced major changes and new visa procedures for visitors, residents, families and people overstaying their visas. Among them was the decision to introduce a new six-month visa for jobseekers whose visas have expired but wish to work in the country.
The temporary visa is meant to enhance the UAE’s position as a land of opportunities and a destination for talents and professionals.
The legislative package also included the new insurance scheme for workers that replaced the Dh3,000 deposit per worker with a new Dh60 insurance policy starting from mid-October 2018.
