The United Arab Emirates has approved extending the duration of work permits from two years to three, the 24NewsHd TV channel reported on Monday. 

According to international media, the UAE’s parliamentary body, Federal National Council (FNC) has awarded its consent in connection with the extension of the work permits duration.  This came after an FNC committee recommended the move to reduce the financial costs associated with obtaining work permits.

Currently, work permits in the UAE are issued for two years. The document is issued by the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation. It is illegal for a person to work in the country without a valid permit.

A report submitted by the FNC Committee on Financial, Economic, and Industrial Affairs suggested that the duration be increased to three years. 

It also proposed other recommendations, including a waiver of work permit fees for a job change. 

Another recommendation that the FNC approved was that workers must spend at least a year with an employer after the probation period. However, this requirement can be waived if the employer agrees.
