UAE to reduce cost of recruiting Indian domestic workers

This update might come as good news for Indian jobseekers looking for opportunities in the UAE.

A delegation from the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) is currently negotiating with the Ministry of External Affairs in India, for boosting cooperation between India and UAE to ensure reduced cost of labour force recruitment in the domestic workers sector, reported Emarat Al Youm.

The cost of labour recruitment is set to decrease with the opening of the new “Tadbeer” centres in the UAE and other government employment agencies in India.

Dr Omar Al Nuaimi, Assistant Undersecretary of Internal Relations and Communication, reiterated the importance of the delegation’s visit to India and its keenness for developing a sustainable relationship.

A key source of expatriate labour in the region, India has long been invested in facilitating employment opportunities for its populace.

For its part, in 2017 the UAE introduced new laws that will guarantee paid leaves and weekly offs to domestic workers.

The e-Migrate system was introduced in 2015 for recruiting Indian workers (including domestic workers) in the UAE.
