UAE Employment Visa & Permit: Step-by-Step Guide

Securing an employment visa in the UAE is a crucial process that requires careful attention to detail and adherence to local regulations. At Amazon Attestation and Documents Clearing, we offer comprehensive assistance to help you navigate the complexities of obtaining an employment visa and permit in the UAE. Here’s a step-by-step guide to ensure a smooth and compliant process.

Step-by-Step Guide to UAE Employment Visa & Permit

1. Apply for an Entry Visa Quota Approval

The first step involves your employer applying for an entry visa quota approval from the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE). This approval allows the company to hire foreign employees and is a prerequisite for proceeding with the visa application process.

2. Submit a Signed Employment Contract

Once the quota approval is obtained, you need to sign an employment contract with your employer. This contract outlines the terms and conditions of your employment and must be submitted to MOHRE for approval.

3. Submit a Work Visa Application and Apply for an Entry Visa

Your employer will then submit a work visa application on your behalf. This application includes providing all necessary documents such as your passport copy, employment contract, and educational certificates. Simultaneously, your employer will apply for an entry visa (residence visa) that allows you to enter the UAE.

4. Receive an Employment Entry Visa

Upon approval of your work visa application, you will receive an employment entry visa. This visa permits you to enter the UAE and is usually valid for 60 days, during which you must complete the remaining visa procedures.

5. Apply for an Emirates ID

After arriving in the UAE, you need to apply for an Emirates ID. This involves submitting biometric data (fingerprinting) at an authorized center. The Emirates ID is a mandatory identification document for all UAE residents.

6. Get a Medical Checkup

A medical examination at an approved health center is required to ensure you are fit for work. The medical checkup typically includes tests for communicable diseases like HIV and tuberculosis.

7. Submit a Labor Contract

Your employer must submit the labor contract to MOHRE for final approval. This contract confirms your employment terms and is registered with the ministry.

8. Get Health Insurance

Health insurance is mandatory for all employees in the UAE. Your employer will arrange for health insurance coverage as part of your employment benefits.

9. Receive a Work Visa and Begin Payroll

Once your labor contract is approved and health insurance is in place, your work visa will be issued. You can now officially start working and begin receiving your salary.

10. Receive a Residence Visa

The final step involves receiving your residence visa, which is stamped in your passport by the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA). This visa allows you to reside legally in the UAE for the duration specified.
