UAE: New Working Permits to be Issued with Golden Residency Holders

Alroeya, 1 July 2021: The UAE’s Human Resources and Emiratisation Ministry has announced it will issue working permits to golden residency holders.

The new work permit covers three categories.

These are unemployed people, people who want to renew their existing working permit and people who want to work for a different employer.

It has been issued as part of a Cabinet Decision which allowed work permits to be issued to Golden Residency holders.

The same rules and procedures related to the issuing of work permits and contracts apply to dependents registered on their parents’ residency, if they are applying for work and are Golden Visa holders.

Work permits and contracts concluded between employers and workers who receive the Golden Residency will remain valid, and subject to all applicable UAE legislations.

Prescribed fees and applicable fees for work permits for those outside the country, as well as fees for renewing and amending work permits and contracts, will also apply to Golden Residency holders.
