IMPACT – MEDIUM
Authorities have introduced a number of immigration changes for Dubai Creative Clusters Authority companies. The changes were announced last week and took immediate effect.
BAL Analysis: Employers should familiarize themselves with the changes and, if necessary, alert affected employees. Employers should be sure they understand the new e-entry permit process and should let employees know that they need to get both their entry permit and passport stamped upon arrival. The changes on visa corrections and transfers within DCCA will increase administrative requirements for applicants. Companies may need to adjust their budgets to account for the fee increases and should be prepared to adjust time lines and start dates, if necessary, to allow for employees to obtain health insurance in order to have their residence visas processed. Those with questions about any of the changes should contact BAL.
