Want to make some extra money in the UAE?
Earning extra cash is never a bad thing, right? Ex-pats can actually work on a part-time basis with a different employer, as well as their regular job in the UAE.
The Ministry of Human Resources & Emiratisation allows you to pick up a part-time job by obtaining a work permit.
Who can apply for a part-time work permit?
- Employees registered at the Ministry who hold valid labour cards.
- People who meet the conditions to be granted work permits based on the residency of their families.
- Students over 18 years of age.
- Government employees.
- The permits may not be issued to a non-national employee who is over 65 years of age.
The part-time work permit is valid for one year and must be renewed after the completion of the same.
What are the documents required for the work permit?
- Valid passport and visa copy
- One passport size photograph with white background
- NOC from your existing full-time employer
- Copy of your labour card / Emirates ID / labour contract
- Labour Establishment card for both companies (if applicable)
- Passport copy of the Sponsor (If you are sponsored by your husband or father)
What is the procedure of applying for a part-time permit?
Once all your documents are in place, the prospective part-time employer has to submit them through Tas’heel Service Centre.
The part-time company has to submit the documents and make the following payment:
- Application fees of Dhs153
- Part-time labour card fees of Dhs553
WARNING: As the law states, the most important documents for procuring your part-time work permit is a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from your existing employer.
