I was working for a company here. I was blacklisted forever due to
a theft case in 2005. Now a company has appointed me at the Sharjah
Hamriya & Jebel Ali free zone. Is it possible that I can get an
employment visa on the company sponsorship for two years?
Blacklisting or a ban is a legal mechanism in the UAE that prevents a
resident or an employee from re-entering into the UAE, or from
accepting any employment position with a new employer for a fixed
period of time.
Workers and visitors may be subjected to an entry ban or a work ban,
depending on what they have done while they were in the UAE.
Blacklisting or ban could be broadly categorised into two types i.e.
employment ban and immigration ban.
In an employment ban, A person is not permitted to work in the UAE for
a specific period of time due to breach of certain provisions of the
UAE Labour Law. An employment ban is usually given under the following
A permanent ban is usually imposed on absconding employees.
A ban for a period of six months will be automatically imposed by the
Ministry of Labour, in case if a worker has not completed two years
with his current employer. An immigration ban is usually imposed for
serious labour offences or crimes committed by person. Therefore, an
immigration ban means that one cannot enter the UAE, irrespective of
whether the person intends to enter as a visitor or for residency.
Since you were convicted of theft, an immigration ban was imposed upon
you. Therefore, you will not be allowed to enter into the UAE.
I have been working in a
company here on an unlimited contract. I have resigned recently with
30 days notice period. I would very much appreciate if you kindly
advice me on the labour ban, if any, end of service benefits, and my
passport which they kept with them.
First of all, the employer does not have the right to hold the
employee’s passport without the latter’s consent. Secondly, according
to Articles 125, 131, 132,133 and 137 your end of service benefits
are; a certificate of service (free of charges), the expenses of
sending you back to your home country (a ticket and any other agreed
upon expenses according to the labour contract), and your gratuity
would be the salary of 21 days for each year divided by three.
Finally, Under the UAE laws, if an employee leaves a job without
completing two years, then, the Ministry of Labour will impose a work
ban for six months or for one year if requested by the employer (KT).
