Immigration is one of the primary concerns for anybody hoping to work as a contractor in the UAE, for recruitment agencies placing contractors in the UAE or for companies that require their staff to work on assignments in the UAE. Permanent employees will find it easy to get their UAE work permit because they’ll receive “sponsorship” for their entire stay from their prospective employer. Thankfully, Umbrella Companies provide a convenient and effective solution.
UAE Umbrella Companies sponsor contractors, consultants and staff of foreign companies on local UAE Work Permits and pay-roll them locally. They don't make any decisions about their workload, clients or anything to do with the day to day operations. They simply sponsor individuals on a UAE Work Permits and then pay them through the UAE Wage Protection System (WPS) as required by the Ministry of Labour and the Central Bank. Thus removing the onus from the local client, the agency or the international company.
If you have a confirmed contract/consultancy job, you're a recruitment agency with a contractor to place or an international company that needs to assign their staff to the UAE, a UAE Umbrella Company are able to sponsor consultants on UAE Work Permits provided they’re on the register of approved sponsors.
Through their service consultants should be able to start work in the UAE from as little as 14 days from the date of application.
