Advisory for Indians seeking job in Dubai

Dubai
3 Aug 2017

Indians seeking jobs in the UAE should not come on visit visas and must authenticate their employment offers and permit visas before arriving in the country, the Indian Consulate here has said, amid growing cases of duping and visa frauds.
The advisory follows a high number of calls and visits to the Consulate by Indian workers who have been duped by agents or employers on a regular basis.
Consul-General of India in Dubai Vipul said the mission did not have the precise data on the number of such calls "because most such calls are complex and raise a variety of issues".
He said most calls about duping were related to workers who come for employment or searching for employment on visit visas.
"We have got several cases of people falling into trouble when they come for employment or for looking for employment on visit visas. There are also cases of women being forced to work as maids by dubious agents who get them to the UAE on visit visas as well as sending them to Oman and other countries," Vipul told Gulf News. (PTI)
