  9. Hai deepak,
    I want to know one thing. Currently i am working in saudi arabia and came here in uae for visit visa. There is any problem for getting employment visa in uae without cancelling my saudi visa.

    1. Deepak,
      Not that I know of.
      But I recommend to cancel the saudi visa, so yo don’t face problems in the future.

  10. Hi Deepak
    Sorry for disturbing you. Your blog has been quit useful for me. This time i am looking for a new job. I have done some internationally recognized courses and i believe i can make it through the interview. But my problem is experience. No company now our days want to recruit someone without experience. Now i have to lie on my resume that i have experience in this role in my previous company. Please tell me if this can work or if companies in UAE do background check of experience. Can they also check my Visa.

    Thanks for all your Help so far.
    Best regards

  11. Hi! my contract is under unlimited contract. My visa issue is on May 20, 2015, I’m just about 2 months in the company and I decided to resign because they don’t want to give me my 1 hour lunch break, they just allow me to eat and after that work again because they said I’m just sitting and no need to have a break. my position is general clerk but I do everything, I clean the whole office, the toilet and I carry heavy product on our stock because were selling food online. so I believe this is not right for me. Now my concern is because I am Locally hired here in Dubai, I go here first with a tourist visa. during the expiration of my tourist visa I need to go for an exit and also to change my visa into working visa. My company is the one who shoulder everything for my exit my Ticket going to kish island, My food and hotel allowance. My question is can the company ask me to pay back all the money that they give me for the expenses of my exit? can they deduct it on my salary since I already give them my 1 month notice? or would it be right if they will deduct everything on m Salary? in my contract it not stated there that I need to pay them anything if I leave. hopefully you can give me a clarification. thank you so much.

    1. Grace,
      a break after 5 hours of work is mandatory as per labour law.
      If it is written in your contract that you should pay, then you should.

  12. I don’t know where to go or who to ask, maybe you can help me Mr. Deepak. My husband has been employed from a coffee shop here in Dubai. The problem came when he was asked for another test for MEdical examination, they ask for his phlegm for 2 days. Now the company called saying that my husband is positive for TB and they need his resignation letter, and that he will be deported. They cannot show us any proof of the medical result. His Employment visa will expire on Aug 3. Can you give us an advise on this.

    1. Jorie,
      They have to show you the proof. They can not hide it from you.
      How was the visa processed if you had TB and how old is your visa?
      If you are proven positive on TB, the authorities would directly call you and take you to a new facility.
      I smell something fishy here!
