UAE is the hub of job seekers, each day dozens of people from around world come here to apply for different jobs and make their career. But did you know that you can also get UAE work permit visa? It may be not simple for some because at different circumstances, it can cost a lot. There are different ways of getting UAE work permit. First way is to apply online from your country and someday, your application will get accepted and they will ask you get you a medical certificate, just to make sure that you must not be a liability to them.
And they will then send you an offer letter and a letter of agreement. Second way is to get a one month or three months visit visa and apply for jobs by going at different offices and if anyone has vacancy then they will hire you, but the chances are very less. Applying for jobs on visit visa is illegal in UAE and if the officials catch you, you can be deported back to your country and that will be a bad reputation for your passport because that will affect your career if you want to apply it any other country.
But if you get lucky by getting an offer letter while being on visit visa then you will be offered the work permit but you will have to get your visa status changed by existing UAE in your own home country on any country nearby. And you have to come back immediately to start your job. But there are companies who might ask you for some money in advance or they will offer that they will cut some money of work visa cost from your salary for a short period of time. This has also been declared as illegal in UAE but there are still many companies who demand many and people pay that an investment on their self. Because some actually earn a lot of money and make a good career.
There is another term called the freelance visa also called the Azad visa. In this visa, the candidate pays for the visa and he/she can get a working visa on the basis that he/she will not claim any job for him/her by the company. Because the company will be just giving the visa and they are not giving any kind of job.
