Reasons Behind UAE BAN 2018

Welcome to UAE LABOURS free Platform, February 2017 just begin and expats around the world are looking for new jobs in UAE. Hundreds of expats who are working in UAE may want to change their jobs in upcoming days, to do this they need a secure and safest step that won’t make problem for tomorrow.

Are you previously work in UAE and now banned to Enter in UAE in this year 2017 or want to come back again but not sure about Ban. The concern is mostly for those who previously run away from work without completeing the minimum period of contract.

A Good News:

UAE replaces most of the employment system in 2016 with contract basis after completing 2 years or what is specified in Job contract worker is free to leave and get a new job. But most of workers don’t know and try to do leave or run away from job without informing employer.

Let list down the question you may have in you mind and find than answers:

I want to leave my Job without Completing Contract:

Limited Contract: On limited contract employee can easily  leave his job without any worry after completion of minimum period mostly 2 years or what specific in contract but in case worker don’t want to continue the job and want to terminate the contract than employee must compensate his employer with at least 45 days of salary. Article 116

Otherwise in case if worker run away or leave the job without compensating or ending the contract than he/she may find difficulty to get a new job  in UAE or enter again in UAE for one year on work visa. Just follow the contract, ones contract expired leave the job and get a new one. Prior to 2016 there is no official mutual contract system many labourers who don’t like their jobs when leave the job would quickly get ban to enter in UAE.

Also no employer is allowed to take a worker who already breaks his limited contract. Article 128

Unlimited Contract:

Leaving from job in unlimited contract is more flexible worker just need to notify his employer before 30 days of leaving the position  which is Called Notice Period. In this period employer/company can fill up the position or take necessary steps.

In case worker didn’t notify or give notice period and leave the job without or with consent of employer than he/she may face the ban to get new job in UAE for one year. Just Remember the Notice Period or Ask the employer to terminate the contract if he agrees just leave the job.

Some Points through you can avoid BAN of UAE in 2017:

Mutual Contract/agreement: 

Actually UAE government not cancel or fully terminate BAN on workers instead UAE introduces mutual contract or understanding system between worker and employer. Mutual Agreement is understanding between worker and employer if worker follow that agreement which is signed during hiring and follow that, worker can easily switch job and don’t face any BAN.

According to Article 130 of UAE labour laws both worker and employer shoult make an agreement which is than authorized by Minister of Labour and Social Affairs with the approval of the original employer.”


There are some professionals who are totally free from any type of BAN even if they terminate contract and leave the job. Mostly these are higher degree holders having skill level of 1, 2, 3 while skill level 4 and 5 can still face Ban.
