Who wouldn’t want to live and work in Dubai, am I right? A place that’s home to some of the best experiences, studded in skyscrapers and home to the tallest tower in the world - imagine living and working there - magical!
So, speaking of working in Dubai, residents can now expect work permits to be extended up to three years instead of two!
The FNC (Federal National Council) which is the UAE’s parliamentary body has approved and signed off on the extension of work permits.
Previously, residents could only get a work permit for up to two years with their job contracts and visas, but now can get their permits for three years. Although, the FNC had mandated that employees spend one year minimum with their company after their probationary period and only then can a work permit be granted up till three years. This depends if both parties agree and decide to keep the duration three years.
This move for work permits is made by the FNC in order to reduce the costs that companies bear while applying for work permits.
All work permits are issued by the UAE’s Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE), although a timeline for the roll out of work permits isn’t out yet.
How great is that?
