New Data in Immiguru: UNITED ARAB EMIRATES

We’re very pleased to announce that two new processes for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have been added to Immiguru this week – the Employment Permit to Dubai Mainland and the Employment Permit to Abu Dhabi Mainland.

Foreign nationals wishing to work in Dubai or Abu Dhabi Mainland, must apply for a work permit, an employment e-visa and a labour card in order to obtain a residence visa and an Emirates ID Card.  Note that this immigration process is slower and more complex than that for a UAE entity located in one of the many Free Zones.

Many thanks to our partner in the UAE, Sesam Business Consultants for their help with this!
