Those who are currently on the hunt for finding a job on a visit is warned by MoHRE, if they got caught they can face lifetime from entering the UAE and instantly deported from UAE.
Also it has been asked jobseeker to not fall prey to the big promises made by employers and companies in Dubai as they can abuse visit visa holders because they cannot fall within labor laws of UAE.
Many employers ask seeker for Money in order to give them employment visa but usually, it will not happen they take the money and walk away. Jobseekers cannot be able to tell and complaint to authorities as they are on visit visa, not employment or work visa
Though the law clearly states that people residing in the UAE on a visit visa are prohibited from working and that companies are prohibited from employing such people, the trend is rife.
What the law says
Article 11 of the Federal Law No. 6 for 1973 concerning immigration and residence clearly states that “the alien who obtains a visit visa may not work anywhere in the country with or without pay or for his own”.
Additionally, by virtue of Federal Decree-Law No 7 for 2007, “a fine of Dh50,000 per worker has been prescribed, in the event the MoHRE finds any employer employing an individual on a visit visa”. If the offence is repeated, the fine amount is doubled.
Expatriate employers violating the law will be deported and banned for life from entering the UAE. And for UAE nationals, a six-month prison term will be handed down. Despite this, all it takes is a scroll online to see numerous job listings that specifically put a call-out for applicants on visit visas.
