Revolutionizing Employment for Visit Visa Holders

But a specific proposal by Dr. Ali Humaid bin Khatem is going to bring massive changes in the tourism and the job market of the United Arab Emirates.

As we all know, hefty fines and other penalties apply on companies that hire visitors, therefore requiring them to get an employment visa and work permit issued before an individual starts working for them.

The advocate-general and head of Naturalisation and Residency Prosecution, Dr. Ali Humaid bin Khatem has recently suggested at The Entrepreneurship Makers Forum in Dubai that UAE visit visa holders should be allowed to work legally which contradicts the current law that states it is a criminal offense to work or employ an individual who is holding a visit visa.

This groundbreaking proposal could significantly alter the employment landscape in the country.

During the forum, Dr. Ali Humaid bin Khatem revealed a plan to establish a work permit system that authorizes employers to hire visit visa holders legally. This seeks to address the current legal restrictions that prevent visit visa holders from engaging in employment, and provides flexibility in the UAE’s job market and ensures that employment practices are in line with legal standards.

Bogus Emiratisation

One of the critical issues that Dr. Ali Humaid bin Khatem highlighted during “The Entrepreneurship Makers Forum” is the challenge of bogus Emiratisation, a method where UAE nationals are hired in nominal roles to meet the quotas of Emiratisation without being assigned to do substantive tasks. But with the proposal, new avenues will open for both employers and visitors that will completely transform the employment industry.

Supporting Entrepreneurships with Sustainable Development

Dr. Ali Humaid bin Khatem’s proposal is seen as a massive step towards creating a more supportive environment for youth initiatives and sustainable development for fostering entrepreneurship and acknowledging importance of content creators, robust legislation, and legal frameworks. This proposal underscores the indispensable significance of legal reforms, acknowledging their instrumental role in propelling the entrepreneurial landscape forward while championing the aspirations of emerging business leaders.
