Exempting workers with expired work permits from medical test
The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation, the Ministry of Health and Prevention, and the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship have announced the exemption of workers with expired work permits from carrying out the medical examination. Work permits and residences will be issued and renewed automatically for facilities workers and domestic workers, within the framework of precautionary measures taken by the UAE United Arab Emirates to address the novel coronavirus (Covid-19).
