Labour Card, work permit cancellations only at Tasheel branches
Beginning today, cancellation of labour cards and work permits will be done only at Tasheel branches, rather than at the Labour Ministry offices, it has been announced.
According to Hameed bin Demas Al Suwaidi, Assistant Undersecretary at the Labour Ministry, this forms a part of e-cancellation facility launched by the Ministry of Labour and Interior. This is the first phase of e-link between the ministries.
The Labour Ministry offices will no longer receive or handle any transaction pertaining to visa cancellation, and the labour cards and work permit annulment application should be typed and submitted at Tasíheel.
At present there are total of 25 Tasíheel service branches in Dubai, RAK, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain and Sharjah. In Abu Dhabi, however, the typing offices accredited by Tasíheel can continue to process the e-cancellation, Bin Deemas revealed.
This procedure is hoped to save time and efforts of customers and the Labour Ministry will process the cancellation electronically and forward any such transaction information to the Interior Ministry right away, he said.
The companies will not be able to cancel the residency visa with the Residency and Naturalisation Department, without completing the said step, he said.
Employers and firm owners who have an E-Signature Card (ESC) can exclusively avail of such facility, Bin Demas clarified. As for companies yet to avail the ESC, the Labour Ministry has granted a grace period of three months, Bin Demas clarified.
