UAE to Introduce Freelance Work Permit with Flexible Options
Dubai: The Minister of Human Resources and Emiratization, Abdul Rahman bin Abdulmanan Al Awar, said on Wednesday that the UAE will create a new flexible work permit that will let employees with all kinds of skills work as freelancers.
The new freelance work model aimed at enhancing the workforce in the country will be an addition to all the recent reforms announced and being implemented by the country.
Regal Dubai Travel Agency provides a Remote work visa from Dubai for individuals who are interested in obtaining a virtual work residence visa in the country and will not be required to be physically present in the UAE at the time of their visa application.
What is the difference between new Remote work visa and freelance visa?
Currently, an employee in the private sector needs to have a contract with an employer or multiple employers as per the respective companies’ work requirements.
Now with the new policy that we’re thinking of, you work for yourself. It is an ad hoc job that you decide to do whenever it’s acceptable to you, at any time, provided that it is under the umbrella of the law.
