Foreign nationals wishing to take up employment in the UAE must obtain an employment visa, which is issued by the Ministry of Labour, and a residence permit, which is issued by the Department of Immigration.

Residence permits allow foreign nationals to take up employment in the UAE with specific employers. Residence permits are valid for two years in the main UAE and three years in the free zones. They are renewable for the same periods, indefinitely.

After aII of the documents are submitted, it takes approximately four to six weeks to complete the whole process, including the issuance of a residence permit.

A foreign national may not begin employment until his or her application and other papers are approved and accepted. Consultation with an advisor is generally required for those wishing to establish a business or to set up a foreign subsidiary in the UAE. This procedure requires case-by-case analysis and advice.

The application process for obtaining an employment visa is completed by the sponsoring company. The company submits an application form, including, but not limited to, the following documents:

1. Copy of the employee's passport.
2. Copy of the trade license of the sponsoring company.
3. Letter of guarantee of employment from the sponsor.
4. Authenticated educational certificates of the employee.
5. Five passport photos.
