Good conduct certificate no longer mandatory for jobs switch
Those seeking employment in the UAE from outside the country will, however, have to produce the good conduct certificate.
Residents changing jobs in the UAE can take it easy. They will not require a good conduct certificate. It is not a 'mandatory document' when they apply for a visa if they are in the UAE, said a source in the General Directorate of Residence and Foreigners' Affairs (GDRFA).
Khaleej Times received a copy of the notice which was issued to all Amer and Tasheel centres, informing residents that the good conduct certificate would not be needed for the visa if they are in the country.
Earlier this week, the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) suspended the requirement for good conduct certificate for new Filipino and Indonesian domestic workers until June this year.
Those seeking employment in the UAE from outside the country will, however, have to produce the good conduct certificate for their visas to be processed.
UAE diplomatic missions, or overseas Customer Happiness Centres at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation should attest these certificates.
The Police Clearance Certificate rule for job seekers came into effect from February 4 this year. Expats applying for new work visas in the UAE are subjected to security background checks and required to submit a police clearance from their home countries, or the country of their residence for the past five years.
