UAE issues work permits for golden visa holders


DUBAI – The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE) has begun issuing work permits for golden visa holders.

According to MOHRE, work permits are required in three cases:

Work permits are required for those who were unemployed when they received their golden visa and now want to start working for a new employer.

Employed golden visa holders who plan to start working for a new employer also need work permits.

Work permits for golden visa holders are also needed when their current employer wants to renew their existing work permit and contract.

According to the ministry, the same rules and procedures related to the issuance of work permits and contracts apply to dependents registered on their parents’ residency, if they are applying for work and are golden visa holders.

Work permits and contracts concluded between employers and workers who receive the golden visa will remain valid, and subject to UAE legislations.

According to the ministry, all fees for work permits for those outside the UAE, as well as fees for renewing and amending work permits and contracts, will be applicable to golden visa holders. ICA/Expat Media
