As the second phase of the Work Bundle launches, the processing time for getting work permits and residency visas has gone down from 30 days to 5 days. This is applicable across the UAE, as reported by the Khaleej Times. In fact, several government ministries and federal authorities have come together to launch a platform that hires new employees. This platform will ease the hiring process for business owners and private companies. Not to mention, it will also ease the process of pre-renewal of work permits for existing employees.

At this point, it’s worth noting that the first phase of the Work Bundle was rolled out back in March in Dubai. And now, after it has been implemented across all seven emirates, the second phase has begun. It’s worth mentioning at this point, that the third phase will be covering the domestic workers as per the MoHRE. Additionally, companies can currently only access Work Bundle on its website, however, the mobile app will be rolled out soon.
