The «Early Leave» Initiative Will Help Foreign Workers Return to Their Countries

The «Early Leave» Initiative Will Help Foreign Workers Return to Their Countries - Coming Soon in UAE
6 April 2020

The new initiative facilitates the process of returning to their home countries for residents who work for private companies.

The initiative was designed to help those foreign specialists who want to leave UAE during the period when various measures were taken to combat the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19. The UAE Government is committed in every way to help such workers by all means and to facilitate all the procedures for returning home if they express such a desire.

«Early leave» initiative was developed by the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation. Also, other official bodies took part in its creation, including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship, the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority, and the General Civil Aviation Authority.

The rules that all companies must comply with if their employees want to implement the «Early leave»:

– Companies will have to indicate the duration of the leave and at the same time sign an additional temporary form for the employment contract.

– The next step should be to book a round-trip ticket for an employee who expressed a desire to temporarily leave UAE.

– It is emphasized that the contractual relationship between the employee and the employer must continue.

– The end time of the leave is considered the moment the employee returned to work and the precautionary period has ended.

– Work residencies for those who went back to their countries will be renewed automatically if they are expired even if they are not yet back in UAE.
