  • Hello every one,
    I got a long term visa from a school in Sharjah but the boss told me that I need a work permit and asked me to cantact an attorney. The attorney asked me to pay 330$ to issue my work permit is that true are these the real procedures I dont want to pay I am afraid it is fraud or a joke please can any one help me
    Thank you
  • Sali .Normally the work permit should be funded by your new boss and then if he want he can deducted from your wages.if you opt to hire an attorney make sure to get reciepts from the law firm and have in-hand a certified contract from your new boss for @ least a year tomake sure he will hire you long enough to get back your out off pocket money which you paid the attorney.

  • Hello Andavoy,

    That is true that you must have work permit to work in Dubai. As per the Labour Law in the UAE if you are not resident person of Dubai, you must have visa and work permit.
  • Not really.You can do job hunting while on visitor's visa. once you score the job , your employer will provide you with a new visa:)
