UAE federal government has announced several benefits with regards to Visa rules today. A prominent announcement is the introduction of a new 6 months visa for Job Seekers who have cancelled their previous work visa and are looking for a new job.
According to Gulf News,
A 6-month visa to be introduced for job seekers who overstayed their visa but wish to work in the country. Temporary visa to enhance the UAE’s position as a land of opportunities, a destination for talents and professionals.
A major issue for the expat community is that they were forced to leave in 30 days once their visa expires. This 6 month temporary visa will aid the expats in finding a new job without worrying about the visa limitations. This is a welcome move by the UAE government and expats will benefit immensely with this announcement.
The new UAE Visa announcement is in line with the UAE government’s commitment to its people and its businesses, to grow the economy for the welfare of everyone. This comes after the recent announcement to offer 10 year visa to investors to attract more investments into the country.
