Very Soon, new visa to be introduced in UAE

The legislative package also included the new insurance scheme for workers.

Earlier in June, UAE Cabinet announced major changes and new visa facilitation procedures for visitors, residents, families and people overstaying their visas.

Among them was the decision to introduce a new six-month visa for job seekers who overstayed their visa but wish to work in the country. The temporary visa is meant to enhance the UAE's position as a land of opportunities and a destination for talents and professionals.

The legislative package also included the new insurance scheme for workers that replaced the Dh3,000 deposit per worker with a new Dh60 insurance policy starting from mid-October 2018.


Under the new legislation, the government will also grant people overstaying their visa a chance to leave the country voluntarily without a "no entry" passport stamp. Individuals who entered the UAE illegally will have the chance to leave voluntarily with a "no entry" stamp for two years if they provide a valid return ticket. Individuals will also be able to adjust or renew their visa for a fee without having to leave and re-enter the country soon.
