If you missed the October 1 deadline to sign up for the UAE Unemployment Insurance Scheme, don’t panic, but it’s time to take action. The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) has issued a crucial update that could affect your work visa. Here are all the important details you need to know.
Avoid Visa Issues: Check & Settle Fines Today
To avoid potential visa problems, check for any fines related to the missed deadline. The MoHRE emphasizes that settling fines promptly is crucial. You can easily check and pay fines through the MoHRE smart application, their website, or by visiting authorized business service centers.
Paying For Insurance In Instalments: UAE MoHRE Offers Flexible Solutions
Good news! If you’re facing financial constraints, the MoHRE is allowing individuals to request installment plans for fine payments. Moreover, they are open to appeals for exemptions from fines, provided all necessary supporting documents are submitted.
Stay Informed: Consequences Of Non-Payment
Remember, failing to pay fines on time not only incurs a AED200 penalty but can also lead to the cancellation of your insurance policy. For some employees, this means they won’t be able to renew work visas until fines are settled.
Work Permit After Deadline: You Still Have Time
If you received your work permit after the October 1 deadline, there’s good news. You have a four-month window from the permit’s start date to register for the scheme. Don’t miss this opportunity to secure your future. So, that means you have until January 2024 to get all your ducks in a row and we suggest getting it done sooner rather than later.
