The process of sponsoring a non-citizen for a visa to work and live in a foreign country is known as "visa sponsorship." As most foreign workers require a visa to work and live in the UAE and GCC, visa sponsorship is an essential part of the labour market. The employer must typically obtain approval from the relevant government authority before issuing the employee with a visa to complete the visa sponsorship process. Sponsorship of a visa also entails making certain that the employee satisfies the requirements of the visa, such as qualifications, experience, and health checks.
Employers may find sponsorship of a visa difficult and time-consuming, and it is essential to ensure compliance with local laws and regulations. Engaging skilled HR consultants who can guide you through the visa sponsorship process and ensure compliance with local laws is essential.
