Dubai has introduced the ‘Work Bundle’ platform, significantly reducing the processing time for acquiring work permits and residency visas, from 30 days to just five days.

This integrated system streamlines procedures across various government entities, including the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE), Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Ports Security (ICP), Dubai Health Authority (DHA), Department of Economy and Tourism  and the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA).

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, noted that the Work Bundle platform aims to simplify and expedite residency and work permit procedures, ultimately reclaiming 62 million working days previously spent on renewal processes.

What Services are Included?

The platform facilitates employment services, including tasks such as renewal, cancellation, medical examination, and fingerprinting.
Initially, this platform is accessible through the 'Invest in Dubai' website and mobile app during its first phase. Subsequently, it will be progressively integrated into various other government digital platforms and the 'Work in UAE' website.

The platform, currently launched in Dubai, will be expanded across other emirates shortly. This initiative aligns with the UAE's broader digital transformation goals, aiming to enhance business efficiency and streamline procedures for both public and private sectors.
