The UAE issues visa campaigns to help residents

ahmed atef - | UAE

An awareness campaign that was launched in the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday will assist in explaining violations that are associated with tourist, work, and job-seeker visas.

There will be a discussion about how important it is for tourists and expats to update their visa status as soon as the one that allowed them to enter the country becomes invalid. This requires the individual to either obtain a new visa or leave the country before the validity of their current residency or tourist permit runs out.

Penalties for overstaying your visa

A recent change in UAE policy standardized the penalties for visitors and residents who overstay their visas. The fine is Dh50 for each day that the individual overstays their visa.

The campaign was begun on October 10 by the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) and the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs, and Ports Security (ICP). It is scheduled to run for a total of three months. In addition to free zones, a variety of government bodies will take part in the event.

Irene, a domestic worker who ran away from her employer and wound up becoming an illegal resident, was profiled in a video that was disseminated as part of the campaign. The movie revealed how the authorities assisted Irene.

The Ministry of Housing and Urban Development (MoHRE) stated on platform X that they are "fully prepared to offer support to ensure your legal status and wellbeing." "... It is essential to comply with labor and residency laws," the MoHRE noted.

Infractions as well as punishments

According to Khalil Al Khoori, undersecretary for Human Resources Affairs at the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization (MoHRE), "the campaign aims to familiarize people with the key provisions of the entry and residency laws for foreign nationals in the UAE, as well as regulations for labour relations (the labour law), and the procedures and penalties for violators." "The campaign aims to familiarise people with the key provisions of the entry and residency laws for foreign nationals in the UAE," "This serves to encourage target groups to comply with laws in order to guarantee the rights of both parties in an employment relationship."

This initiative will comprise a "diverse range of media activities" that will be delivered to target populations in four different languages: Arabic, English, Urdu, and Swahili.

According to Major-General Suhail Al Khaili, who serves as the director-general of the Internal Controls Department (ICP), the campaign will emphasize the legal penalties that are taken against violators.

Through the ICP website or app, people who hold visas can find out the current status of their documents and whether or not they have been assessed any fines. They have the option of paying the fines in person at any of the ICP service centers or typing centers, or they can do it online.

According to Major-General Al Khaili, it is a "serious transgression" to violate the immigration and employment procedures.

"The United Arab Emirates implements an advanced, flexible, proactive, and pioneering residency and labour system," he continued, "and this campaign aims to raise awareness among employers, workers, investors in free zones, and violators of entry and residency conditions in the UAE."

The brand new labor law

The assistant undersecretary for Inspection Affairs at the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE), Mohsen Al Nassi, stated that the campaign will create awareness about the terms of the new labor legislation that went into force the previous year.

These are the following:

  • New employment opportunities include those that are temporary, flexible, full or part time, and may be done from home.
  • There are many different types of leaves, including annual, study, sabbatical, bereavement, maternity, paternity, and sick leaves, in addition to official holidays.
  • The law makes it illegal to harass, intimidate, physically assault, or verbally harass employees, and it also forbids abuse of any kind.
