Dubai-based lawyer Barney Almazar answers the most common questions regarding your legal options in various cases related to living and working in the UAE.



Can I work under a visit visa?

No. A visit visa will not allow you to work, whether paid or not. Even if you are self-employed, you are not allowed to perform any work on a visit visa.

If your visa is issued for employment, you cannot work for another without the written consent of the General Directorate of Naturalization and Residency.
