How to check your Labour Contract Online on www.mol.gov.ae? (2017 version)

Check Labour Contract Online in UAE – www.mol.gov.ae

Every employee who has his/her Labour Contract through Ministry of Labour (MOL) will need to sign his/her Labour Contract before the residence visa can be stamped. All the MOL labour contracts are available online that can be checked at anytime by employees if they so wish. If you are working in UAE, I would strongly advise you to read and understand your employment contract terms and conditions, so that you may not fall into trouble in the future. Many people take the contract for granted and sign it blindly to realise later the kind of trouble they have got into. 

NOTE:

Ministry of Labour has taken down the link to check Labour Card / Labour Contract information from their site. This I believe is done to integrate Emirates ID and Labour Card. I will soon update this page as and when new information is available.

–Information you require to check your Labour Contract online:

  • Labour Card;
  • Passport number;
  • Year of Birth;
  • Your Nationality.

Video Tutorial on how to check your Labour Contract online in UAE

Step by Step guide to check your Labour contract / Employment Contract:

Below is how you can check your official Labour Contract/Labour Card information online through MOL website.

STEP 1:

Head over to MOL Website: www.mol.gov.ae. The default language is Arabic. Choose English if you wish on top right.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

STEP 2:

Select eServices on top menu and again Eservices in the secondary menu as shown in the picture below.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

STEP 3: 

Once you click you will be provided with various options. Out of these Select eNetwasal ServicesYou will now be redirected to a new page which has various options like: Labour Card Information, Contract Information and other options.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

STEP 4: 

Now you select whatever information you would like to retrieve.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

STEP 5:

Once you click on the relevant link, you will be asked ‘whether you have a Labour Card?’ Select Yes and click Next.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

STEP 6:

At this point you will be presented with a screen where you are required to enter Labour Card No(This is the 8 digit Work Permit No mentioned in the Labour Card), Person Code(This is the 14 digit Personal No mentioned in the Labour Card), Year of Birth and Nationality.

In the next screen, depending on your previous selection, you will find all the details with regard to your Contract Copy, Company Name, Company Code, Your Name, Designation, Nationality, Passport number, Passport expiry date, Labour Card number, Type of card, Issue and expiry date of your contract and transaction number.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Your salary will need to match as in this page as salaries are routed through WPS (Wages Protection System).

This is how you check your Labour card information, your official labour contract copy online on www.mohre.ov.ae.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

These days, MOL does not issue labour card as it is integrated with Emirates ID. In such cases, if you wanted to check your labour card/contract details, you could check it with following details: Passport Number, Date of Birth, Nationality and mobile number. One different thing here is that, you will have to go to a Tasheel Centre to get print of your labour contract/labour card.

Here are the steps:

1. On mohre.gov.ae point your mouse to Services on menu and click on e-services link:

2. On the e-services page, click on e-Netwasal link:

4. On the next screen, you will select ‘NO’ as you do not have your Labour Card information:

  8. Dear Deepak,

    Kindly note that I have been newly employed by an employer in Abu Dhabi on an unlimited contract since February 2017. Due to personal reasons, I would like to resign and join my family in Dubai. My husband plans to take a dependent visa for me under his sponsorship once my new employer cancels my visa in the passport. My profession is mentioned as Auditor in the unlimited contract and I hold a Chemical Engineering University Degree attested by Ministry of Foreign Affairs in UAE. I would like to know if there would be any ban imposed on me if I resign from my company within probation period or will I have any issues when my next employer will apply labor contract or employment visa for me as I plan to work with a Dubai company in future.
    Please advise.
    Best Regards

  11. Hi Deepak

    Good Morning and Cheers for Great Day and Happy New Year🎉🎉🎉

    Deepak, iam very new to UAE, I joined as Business development Director last Month only. I have few queries

    1. When I joined the company gave me offer letter for 12k +2k for HRA & CAR,Salik, Fuel and Other allowances. As iam n sales they have asked for 200k gross profit Target to achieve for that 5% incentive will be paid.

    2. For processing visa they send me soft copy of last page of Govt Document.

    3. I signed and send it, got visa and air ticket and joined last month.

    Now after I took my medical and Emirates ID, they showed the original contract which shows.

    1. Only 12k salary all inclusive.
    2. Sales Manager position.
    3. After achieving the GP only they are telling Salary will be paid.
    4. Salary for the present employees is not been paid properly also.

    They forced me to sign the contract as they hold my passport, as I had emergency to go to India for 1week. They made me to sign the contract.

    Mr. Deepak, let me know if I will get as per offer letter or not?

    If I resign Will I get Ban,?

    Will I get job again here in Dubai?

    Please iam confused, looking for your reply and support.

Without my signature, how it could be possible. And please tell me what should I do now? I was paid sometimes 2500 and sometimes 2000. So could you just tell me?

    I would like to ask how come I have my visa stamped by MOL and I don’t have a labour contract.
    Thank you so much.

    • Frand,

  57. Mr Deepak

    I was on 3 month of visit in Dubai and I got job on 20th August 2015. My employer applied for but employment visa two times and it got rejected. Now one ago he applied third time and today I checked in mol website and it shows that “Request already pending for printing with the Tas’Heel enabled typing center”

    What does it mean. Does my visa approved..?

    Thanks in advance

    • Dr.Dhaval,
      MOL does not approve visas. They process labour approval.
      Visas are issued by DNRD in Dubai. You should check with them.

    I am on my husbands sponsorship and working with a company for five years now.. my first four years were on limited contracts ( 2 limited contracts) . the last limited contract ended on 27 feb 2015. due to some unknown reasons they have not yet renewed my contract however I am still continuously working with them and receiving my salary.
    I have just been informed that when they renew my contract next month they will not back date my contract start date. I was also told by a friend that when my company goes for renewal the labour department will automatically backdate my contract and intern my company is entitled to pay a fine for the delay.
    kindly clarify this matter for me as I am intending to work of this company for five continuous 5 years so that I can be entitled for a gratuity.
    Many thanks in advance.

      You must follow up with the PRO.

  68. Hi deepak hope you are doing well , i resigned my limited contract during probation period, please tell me how long labor ban imposed on me ,after serving ban period can i join job in uae.

  69. Hello Deepak,

    How r u doing hope well!!! Very good job done have been reading all your comments … very helpful as due to half knowledge of Laws; fake visas are issued & Agents are taking handsome full of money for sending people in UAE & there is no point of contact in UAE to get proper guiance & geniuenty of permits issued as we are in India & nobody to check from DUBAI. We have tried reaching out to AUH call center, Immigration, Airlines & Embassy but nobody is able to help us out. Please need your advice!!!!

    Request your help in undersatnding this, as one of agent has issued visa for my close relative & many other friends for employement in UAE.

    1. We have recieved visa scan copy (Black & white) without embassy stamp on it only company stamp is visible also we are not able to track this permit no. online at eDNRD as it is issued by AUH(says agent whereas in visa copy it says issued : “Western Area”). Permit no. starts with 109/2015/02/0080xxx. Can you please help us know if this visa is geniune or fake?

    Secondly earlier it was told to us this is issued by DUBAI when we denied this visa is fake & we are not able to trace online in eDNRD now he says its from AUH & now he has given us online receipt of Labour card Information Request which shows Ref. no. & other details & says in the end “Thank you for using eNetwasal services, Kindly visit Tas’Heel enabled typing center to print the requested information by providing this receipt.”

    2. Can you please confirm if Labour card can be requested online before entering UAE ? If yes that means VISA (work permit) is ok ?
    I have gone through online site of MOL which says person has to get Labour card within 60 days of arriving in UAE.

    Thank you so much in advance for your help in giving us advice as we are not able to find out if this Agent is trapping us in some fake visa or its geniune as he is taking good amount for issuing this.

    Thanks Again & God Bless You

    • Resh,
      1. Sorry I can’t help in that case.
      2. Yes, labour approval can be taken before you enter UAE. Once labour approval is done, then only can the entry permit be issued.

  70. Hey Deepak ,

    Is their ban for woman on husband visa . If yes ,please advise how it can be uplifted .

    Thanks in advance 🙂

  71. Dear sir,
    How long it will take to cancel my Visa by my employer if all documents are ready

    Charlie

    • Charlie,
      It should not take more than a day. Actually it is a matter of 2 minute job once the PRO reaches the counter at immigration.

  72. Hi Deepak,

    So much of insight here. Great going.
    Iam working for a Marine company since past 6 years. We work for nearly 9 Hrs a day and we are not paid a single penny as over time charge. How do we get rid of this 9 hrs job?? Is it possible to claim for over time charges?? If so, can i claim for the 1 extra hour per day for the past 6 years? From all the past Labor inspections, company was instructed to maintain a time sheet, but nothing so far. just a manipulated time being written on top of the attendance register. All are scared to report the same to labor dept.
    Please advise.

    Nas

    • Nas,
      I am not sure about your company policies. You can read about Overtime.
      If you are not comfortable, you should request HR to consider your request.

  73. Hi Deepak.

    Great insights here. I just have a question. I signed a contract already and gave passport copy to a company. However, it has been a month and I am not yet starting. Based from their update, they had hit a quota. As per checking with MOL website. My details are already there which I assumed they already applied for my employment visa. But since I have not started, I wish to cancel it already so I can accept other opportunities. What charges will I pay or should I really pay for anything? Please reply. Thank you

      • Hi Deepak and thank you for your hel,

        i have been hired as a podiatrist in abu dhabi. i signed an employment contract the 15/04/2015 and in this contract it is written that :
        if the employee terminate the contract of this employment, the employee will not work for a period of one year following termination with any company that is a direct competitor in abu dhabi or solicit business from or contract business with any customer of the company.
        if the company terminates the contract of this employment, the employee can work.

        this employment contract is unlimited to be renewed each 2 years.

        i signed the 30 june the labor contract wich is a limited one for 2 years.
        now i would like to know wich contract i should follow and if this restraint is valid as par law.
        please

      • Hi MR. Deepak,

        I’ve been working in a company in Dubai for more than 6 yrs with unlimited contract, but last march 2015 i renewed my contract and i was surprised as they have change my contract into 2 yrs limited. if i will decide to resign from job now, do i have to pay 45days salary and not to get my graduaty..? is there any ban for me if i will not finish my 2 yrs limited contract.

        I need your advise with matters please…

      • sir, the labour card is different from working visa? if the labour card is already for printing? is there still a chance that the visa will be disapproved?

        • Hers,
          You should already have the entry permit with you before the labour card approval.
          If you have employment visa entry permit, that means you have the visa approval.
          But visa stamping will on medical fitness.

  74. Hi Deepak,

    please let me know if there is a way to check a company’s status through only its license number? As opposed to the company’s code number? Is there a way to check that online?

    Many thanks in advance.

  81. Dear Sir,
    I was on a visit visa to dubai and got a job offer with a salary of 7000 AED as Interior Designer. The offer letter was accepted by me on 9th feb 2015. After that I didnt applybfor any other job. The offer letter had 3 mnths probation period mentioned. After that till date they havnt issued my visa nor any infoemation was given to me. I DID NOT SIGN ANY CONTRACT WITH THEM NOR I SIGNED ANY OTHER LEGAL PAPERS. i just gave the copies of my passport and educational qualification. They only said your visa is in process . After my visit visa expired i rwturned back to India on 14th April 2015. After waiting for 10 more days i asked them, they said its in process. I mailed them my unwillingness to join their co. On 25th april. After that they mailed me that I hav to pay 7000 AED as visa application and cancellation charges or else they will ban me.
    I am still in India as I didnt get any visa from them, nor any appointment letter , neither i signed any contract.
    Can they still ban me? Are they entitled to claim the 7000 AED.
    Sir I am in great confusion and stress. PLEASE HELP ME.

    • Dhanesh,
      If you have not signed any labour contract, they will not be able to ban you.
      However, check your visa status online whether it has been applied or not.

    • Kenth,

      You may cancel Entry Permit, but if your company has started process of labor approval, you will have a ban.

  109. Hi Mr. Deepak,

    I am 9 months(unlimited contract) in my current company and I want to go for another company that is also wanting to take me in. The problem is their initial salary offer is only 3500. I told them about the 5000,7000,12000 rule to lift the ban. But their PRO doesn’t know much about this. Many said ban can be lifted if offer is 5000 and position is relevant to qualification, but I am a bachelor degree holder(certified public accountant). Can you please suggest what are our options? Should they increase the offer?

    • Boghovi,

My real estate owner was keen enough to allow me to work at the clinic for a week to see if its something I like to continue. However, after working a week I realize the clinic is not the right place for me. My question is since I only signed an offer letter and no documents were submitted to the clinic can I just leave the clinic and join the real estate I was working for and still under their visa or will the clinic put a ban or me or fine me by any chance

  125. Dear Deepak

    I have joined in my duty on 1st May 2013 but my contract was officially signed on 2nd June 2013 with MOL, so when will my contract ends? as per my joining date or contract date?

  126. Hi Deepak,

    I have worked in a company and resigned the job within the limits of 6 months probation(including the notice period eventhough it wasnt required ) and went out of UAE with that time frame. My contract is unlimited and I hold Masters degree.

    When i checked in http://eservices.mol.gov.ae/enetwasal/employeeCredential.aspx – it says Employee Information Doest Not Exists.

    My previous employer told me that they will abscond me . Would you please advice me what would be my status ? And if they have absconded me , how will I find my present status in Dubai ?

    Thanks,

    • Vlin,
      If your labour card is cancelled of course you will have no record. This does not mean your employer has imposed abscond.
      There is no way you will know this unless directly through MOL.

  133. Hi, is this possible to change / transfer my company while I am having a job in uae now? There is a ban on new Bangladeshi visa’s. please reply me with proper info. Thanks in advance

  134. I have came across a scenario, that one company is providing Limited Contract without employees concern, which means the employee he or she hasn’t signed on the Contract. Is that really possible.

    Couple of another question:
    1. if the employee is in limited contract and with in the probationary period can he or she able to resign the job without any consequences.
    2. if the employer demand the employee to pay the visa & other legal work related documents cost, what is the amount approximately, such as the visa, emirates id, medical, work permit and if any.

    Awaiting for your comment Deepak…

  138. Dear Mr.Deepak M, Good day ! My situation is sort of complicated !!
    I a General Practitioner, I have signed a contract with a private hospital in Abudhabi and they have applied for Work Permit from the MOL. For over 3 months they could not obtain me a visa so I told them and I have transferred my License to another Hospital also private and they have given me an approval letter signed to process my license transfer. The new hospital have applied to new work permit but they said i still have valid one under the old Hospital and i have to contact them in order to be cancelled. The old hospital was keen enough and applied for cancellation of the Work Permit Labour Card and sent me a copy of the receipt which I have sent it to the new Hospital ( Employer). My question is, am I going to face a ban? is the new visa application which is work visa gonna go smooth? in case you were wondering I have never worked with the Old Hospital neither I undergone any medical check or anything, I was only on visit visa an I returned back to my country waiting for the Work Visa which they could not obtain.My Medical License have already been transferred to the New Hospital and now is under their name.

    Iam working for a medical centre my contract period is for 2 years.

    i just completed 4 month iam still in probation period.

    I want to resign.

    do i will get ban???

  155. Dear sir,
    Thank you very much for your reply. After your reply i checked the contract in the mol website. in that contract nothing mentioned about visa expences. But the company itself gave me a contract paper to sign. In that they have mentioned if i leave the company before the contract period have to pay visa expences. Why the company taking signature in two different contract papers. Are they cheating me? plese reply.

    • Ganesh,
      Yes, you are bound by company letter.
      MOL contract is a standard contract which encompasses labour law.
      However, companies can also have additional rules and policies.
      This is not cheating. You have signed the letter. How is this cheating?

  156. Hi sir ,
    Presently i am working in a packaging material company LLC . My contract period is 2 years and i have completed 14 months. Now i want to cancel my visa and go home due to personnel matters. Now the company MD is asking to pay the visa and labour card expences (4600 Dhs) I have no money to pay. Please let me know the procedure. Also in my contract they mentioned after completing 12 months period i will get 30 days paid leave. That leave also still not approved. Please help me regarding this matter. Thank you.

    • Ganesh,
      If it is mentioned in your contract that you will pay visa and other expenses, then you will have to pay that.
      Otherwise it is illegal to ask for such expenses.

    • hi pls help me what will happen if i cancell my residency visa before the expiry date?do i get immigration ban?but i fimish my 2 years contract in labour.

      • John,
        If you break limited contract, you may face 1 year ban in which case, yo will not be able to enter UAE and work.

  161. i am really frustrated with my job its been two months i am working in a restaurant and i want to change job i already got my emirates card and health card as well but i want to change my job so is it possible if i get any job in free zone i can resign and join another job and do i have to pay money to my boss

    • Bhuwan,
      This depends on your contract whether you have to pay money to your company.

  162. new company applied for me employment visa as engineer but it got reject. i have completed 3 years and 7months from previous company. cancelled my visa properly and submitted all requirements.

    I called mol for the reason of rejection they say it only indicates ” security”

    if i get a police clearance from abu dhabi the hr dept said they will try to apply again.

    and what does ” security ” mean. I have never committed a crime or violation in uae and had good relation w all in my previous comp.

    if some have a police case for non payment of credit card – will it be the reason for visa visa be rejected

    • May be a similar name is under watchlist of various Government departments.
      Or yes, if similar name or you have any pending cases against you, this may show up.

    Thank you!

    • Cez,
      I am not sure how this is done as the systems are being integrated.
      Best thing is to approach MOL.

  164. Good day Mr.Deepak

    Am working as a Designer in Abu Dhabi & am holding a dubai visa.

    I have resigned my present job,because i have got good offer with another company in dubai. current employer has processed my cancellation and i have signed a cancellation letter recently alsoi have intimated my last working to the employer.

    for processing new employment visa i need visa cancellation letter from the company,but they are not issuing.

    kindly suggest me where i can get my visa cancellation letter through online services.i have to submit that letter to the new company for visa process.

    kindly advise.

    Thanking you,
    Ravi.K

    • Ravi,
      There is nothing called visa cancellation form. Visa cancellation is stamped on your passport.
      If you are talking about labour cancellation, YES, you are supposed to produce it. However, with systems being online entirely, I am not sure why they insist on it.

  165. dear Deepak could u tell how i know about my labour contract agreement?
    if u know any site so pl tell me..

  167. I had worked with M/S Dubai Dry Docks World through a contracting company as an Engineer from March to June 2008. My visa was of M/s Dubai Dry Docks World and employee. I have resigned from stable Marine and exited from UAE by 14-June-2008.

    When my present employer at Oman is trying a visit visa for UAE, the ministry is rejecting my visa stating that I had been reported as absconding (copy attached).

    Later when I contacted the contracting company, they informed me that their contract with Dry Docks had closed and they are helpless. Further I contacted M/S Dubai Dry Docks World and they informed that they are trying to solve this. But I have been hearing this for past couple of months and I am hopeless now.

    Since I have to attend some official meeting at UAE, is it possible for you to give some solutions to solve this issue. Hoping to hear from you soon

    • Gree,
      Sorry, I am not sure how to go about this.
      Better to get in touch directly with immigration through a lawyer.

They said that it’s not important and the emirates id and labour card are now one..??? Because the day when we renewed our contract we tried to get the copy of it but they hesitate to give us. They only told us that we can print it by online..? But how can we know our labour card number? Thank you for answering. I hope you’ll reply as soon as possible. God bless.

  181. hi deepak,
    i am a civil engineer, i have spent 7 months in a LLC company having limited contract,my current visa status is of Civil Engineer, now i want to switch to another company ,as they are offering me salary of 7000 Dh, my current salary is 4000. also my employer is ready to issue me NOC, so either MOL ban for 6 moths will be applicable on me or not, as i have heard that there is no MOL ban for Engineers.
    kindly consult me.

  182. I work for a company and have been there 2.5 months. I am still in my probationary period but they have applied for my labour card. It is a 6 month contract but no notice period from either side within the first 3 months. Will I get a ban if I leave or not? thanks

    • Tracy,
      If this is a temporary contract for 6 months and if they have applied for labour card, there may be an automatic ban.
      I request you to contact MOL as I am not sure about this.

  189. Hi Mr deepak, good day! I have one question.. I am working and I signed a 2 years contract but I am under my husbands visa.. My question is, I want to apply in other work but i am only 4 month old in my current work. Will I get banned for not finishing my contract even if i am under husbands visa?

  190. Hi Mr. Deepak may I ask you a favor pls…where can I search from the MOI for the visa status, If it is already cancel or ban? I’ve tried to search from the google.com but i can’t find. Also I’ve checked from the MOI website I can’t find. Can you help me for this issue? Then 1 more question my friend she was working in Abudhabi then she went her home last January 06,2013 for emergency. then she didn’t go back due to her mother has a problem. Her visa would be expire this month of October 20, 2014. In this case what is your opinion?

    • EJ,
      for visa status it is better to approach your PRO.
      Regarding your friend, did she mention to the company that she was not coming back? Has she formally resigned?
      Visa status can not be checked online currently.

  191. Hi sir,

    can you pls clear this one.

    My husband is working in a company and his visa will expire on 20/04/2015 as a two year contract and labour card expired on 18/09/2014.He got promotion 6 months before and his company changed his position in the visa and the contract also increased to one year more.So now in passport the expiry date is 20/04/2016 .

    But when we check the labour card in the website of MOL its showing Employee does not exist.Why its showing that way..

    • Lintu,
      Congratulations for your husband on promotion.
      There may be an issue with MOL systems which are upgrading to serve everyone better. It should reflect soon.
      Please call MOL to clarify.

  195. I was checking my status at MOL and it shows” Employee Information Doest Not Exists.” does this means the company didnt apply my visa yet? as i want to take the other company who offered me better than the current one.

    • Please approach your company PRO for this. If the labour approval is obtained, you may have ban.

  196. Hi Admin,

    I am working here in Sharjah Industrial Area 10, I arrived in UAE last July 23, 2014, my tourist visa expired last August 23, 2014 but I got this job here in Sharjah Industrial Area 10 last August 20, 2014. The company told me to extend my visa and so I did. Now I am working here and I have only 1 week remaining days. Still they are not processing my visa. What is the best thing to do?

    • Working without labour contract or visa is illegal. And working on tourist visa is also illegal.

      • Then what is the best thing to do now? They keep on promising me about my employment visa but until now its not yet process.

      • Dear Deepak,

        I started my work with my company (DMCC Freezon) in May 2014 when my visa was stamped. After the second month, they discounted my salary with 1,000 AED saying that this is for your own good to push you. (Nothing was given to me in writing. Its just a verbal discussion and since July onward, 1000 AED has been discounted). (6500 AED in contract and receiving 5500 AED till date).

        Now, as of today, I have an offer of 12k in a LLC based company outside of Freezone. my question is

        1. Since I am getting a salary offer as which is an appropriate raise plus better designation, plus the employer has not honored the contract (Bank Statement proof).

        Can i switch my job without a BAN (I think i still haven’t finished 6 months). Started 22nd April 2014????

    My husband is a taxi driver, working with Dubai Taxi for almost 3 months now. On his contract there is no basic salary only an allowance of 1000. He have an offer with a travel company and would like to resign, my concern is when he went to RTA office the HR told him that he will have a one year ban. As per I know, if the person doe not have a basic salary, you do not have a ban if you resign from the company and is it possible for the travel company to lift his ban in case they are going to impose it on my husband? Thanks for the help, your site has been a very reliable and dependable site for everyone who seeks for an advice.

  249. i have applied two company before. both i have given the requirements for the e- visa. but i spoke to the first company that i will not continue working with them and they did not inform me that hey applied me working permit in mol. when the second company is about to provide me e-visa they told hat i have active working permit in mol. need to cancel it first so i spoke to the first company to cancel it. its about 2 mos ago already they always saying that tom tom tom.until now its not cancelled. they said that they renew their trade liscense and need to wait it first.what will i do now sir?

    • You will just have to wait till they cancel your work permit. Explain your situation and try to convince them.

      • I will be able to finish 1 year by end of May 2014 but just to be on the safe side, is it possible to just declare myself as a high school diploma holder instead of a bachelor degree holder? I do have my high school records and it will be less burden to my future employer as they are only required to give a salary of at least aed5k…Being a bachelor degree holder might be a little challenging in situations where your new employer can only give you a salary which is below 12k.

  255. My friend found 2 company who interviewed her at the same day. The first company asked for her copy of documents for future processing, but without signing anything (offer letter, contract). The second company hired her immediately the same day and promised to process her papers as soon as possible. Two days later, when she was about to make a visa exit, the PRO of the second company told her that the first company already processed her papers with MOL. is it possible to cancel that application with MOL without her getting a ban? because she hasn’t made an agreement with the first company yet, but they already processed her papers without her consent. What should we do? Thanks in advance!

    • You can request your company to cancel the application. I dont think you will get ban. Company may ask you to pay the cost. However my advise is to check with MOL before taking any decision.

  256. What if the company is a govenment company of uae and my previous company in tecom freezone company has no problem me moving to other companies completly willing to give noc letter but i have a labour card of free zone from dubai and not completed 1 year of work

    • If the company wants they can impose you immigration ban for not completing the contract period. In this case you will not be able to join government company. If they don’t impose any ban then you can freely join government company in UAE.

I have no problem doing that but the thing is I am also leaving the company in a month’s time. Do I need to apply for a replacement of the card? Will the labor card be returned to the company when I leave? My visa is under DMCC, FYI. I would appreciate your soonest reply, thank you.

  263. good eve… i just want to ask since my contract start may 14, 2011 until now and may basic salary is 1000 as sales if im not renew my contract anymore how much i will get for my graduity…tanx..

    • If it is a unlimited contract you are planning to resign then you will be entitled 1/3rd of your total amount of gratuity
      if it is a limited contract you are planning to resign without completing your contract then you wont be entitled for gratuity. Your total gratuity would be almost 2000 Dhrs
