Transfer of domestic visa – Both sponsors should be present along with the domestic worker.

In a move aimed to stop human trafficking, a circular has been issued stating that the domestic worker (male or female) may be transferred from one sponsor to another in the presence of concerned sponsors along with the domestic worker.

This procedure is to stop the abuses associated with the transfer of domestic workers between sponsors or so-called sale of maids, without the presence of the domestic worker or their approval in transfer and agreeing to work with a new sponsor.

This procedure is similar to what is done in the General Directorate of Traffic regarding the transfer of ownership or sale of vehicles as it requires the presence of the seller and buyer and sign before the traffic officer.
