UAE: Final Deadline to Achieve Emiratisation Objectives Extended

Alwatan, 13 June 2023: The UAE’s Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation has announced an extension of the deadline for private sector companies to achieve their midyear Emiratisation objectives.

The new deadline has been set for 7 July 2023.

Previously, companies in the private sector with 50 or more employees were required to meet these objectives by 30 June 2023. However, considering this deadline coincides with Eid, it has been extended to allow for sufficient time.

Starting from 8 July 2023, the Ministry will begin assessing the commitments of the relevant companies as outlined in the decision issued by the Council of Ministers. This extension provides private sector companies with additional time to work towards fulfilling their Emiratisation objectives and further promotes the goals of national workforce development and employment opportunities.
