An employment visa is a gateway towards an international work experience. The skills and abilities of an employee get polished once he is exposed towards the international work culture. Today, we are in a world where the technology has connected every corner and has developed into a small village.

Today’s companies have got a large landscape where they are able to focus on international recruiting, helping a business entity grow with multi-culture and multi-ideas under a single platform. This technique has been one of the crucial decisions held by the UAE business entities that have molded the entire nation to be one of the fastest growing countries in all aspects.


An employment visa is required to the onboard employees from different regions of the world. Dubai employment visa is issued by the Ministry of Labour (MOL) through the help of any traveling agency for duration of 2 years.

The employer or the business entity initiates the visa process for the future employee by fulfilling the UAE employment visa documents requirements stated by the General Directorate of Residency and Foreign Affairs (GDRFA).

So may other employers or Business entity normally allow employee to process their papers on their own expenses and be duly reimbursed by the employers. Upon completion of the process, the employee will be issued with a work visa along with a residence visa and a work permit that becomes a mandate for every employee working in the Emirates.


The UAE employment visa process can be done through online and offline mode. The MOL has initiated the process of introducing a website which would serve the purpose of the employment visa process at a fast pace. Moving on to the offline mode, (which is always recommended) the documents are to be submitted at the typing centre OR Traveling agency or a service center authorized by YOUR EMPLOYERS. Once these are submitted, it is advised to keep a track to know the visa status, which can be done through an online process, or with the help of the employee’s passport number through the traveling agency.

Work permit requirements involve:

  • The signing of the offer letter
  • Receiving a work approval permit from the Ministry of Labour through Traveling
  • Obtaining employment entry visa and going through a medical test
  • Receiving the Emirates ID and submitting labor contract

Dealing with the same process with a huge number turns out to be a complex process, but if one doesn’t take the risk, the international vibrancy within the organizations lacks to a great extent.
