Recently, the UAE government gave Golden Visas to people who were eligible for it. But do you still need a work permit to work at a private company in the UAE? To answer this question, the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE) wrote on Twitter: “Kindly be informed that every employee must have a valid work permit along with the residence visa to render his or her services to the establishment under private sector.”
MOHRE clarified that this permit is given in three cases:
- Individuals who were not working at the time of getting the Golden Visa if they wish to work for an employer.
2. When a current employer wishes to renew the work permit and contract for the holders of the Golden Visa after the expiry of the work permit.
