Following the launch of the second phase of the Work Bundle platform on Tuesday, the time required to process essential documents for obtaining work permits and residency visas has been slashed from 30 days to five days across the UAE.

Several government ministries and federal authorities have collaborated to introduce a platform aimed at simplifying the recruitment of new employees for business owners and private companies, as well as facilitating the renewal of work permits for existing employees.

Previously a 30-day process, this has now been streamlined to just five days across the UAE, thanks to the successful rollout of the second phase of the Work Bundle platform on Tuesday.

Several government ministries and federal authorities have initiated a platform to streamline the hiring of new employees for business owners and private companies, along with the renewal of work permits for existing employees.

The first phase was initially introduced in Dubai in April and is now being implemented across all seven emirates. The second phase of the Work Bundle initiative will encompass approximately 600,000 companies and over seven million workers. MoHRE has indicated that the third phase will extend to cover domestic workers.

Currently, companies and employees can access Work Bundle only through its website, but a mobile app will soon be made available.
