Indian job seekers should not come to the UAE on visit visas and must authenticate their employment offers and entry permit visas before heading to the UAE, the Indian Consulate in Dubai has said.

The advisory from the mission follows high numbers of calls and visits by Indian workers who have been duped by agents or employers on a regular basis. “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 etc by dubious agents who get them to the UAE on visit visas as well as sending them to Oman and other countries.”

The consulate issued 225 air tickets in 2016 and 186 in the first half of 2017 to stranded workers. In the first half of this year, the consulate received a total of 540 labor complaints of which over 250 have been resolved.
