UAE postpones good conduct certificate requirements for job visa


Staff Report

Dubai – The UAE government has postponed good conduct certificate requirement for employment visas from April 1 in the country until next announcement, according to the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation.

The requirement for a good conduct certificate was first introduced on February 4, after the UAE government announced that all expats applying for a job in the UAE must first obtain a certificate of good conduct in order to be issued a work permit.

The ministry, in a response to a Twitter user’s inquiry, said that the requirement is postponed “until further notice”.

“Dear Customer, kindly note that the good conduct certificate is postponed from the first of April till further notice .— MOHRE_UAE (@MOHRE_UAE) April 1, 2018.”

The UAE had made the good conduct certificate mandatory for employment visas starting on February 4.
Sources said that authorities have started processing visa applications from certain nationalities without the good conduct certificate from last week.
