Dubai Naturalisation and Residency Department (DNRD) has achieved a faster output of work visas following full integration with the Ministry of Labour for receiving labour permits electronically. During the first five months
of 2004, DNRD received 113,485 labour permits electronically from the Ministry of Labour in the UAE.
"The full electronic integration between DNRD and the Ministry of Labour has considerably speeded up the process of issuing work visas," said Colonel Saeed bin Belailah, Director, DNRD. "This is all the more remarkable because
workload and pressure had been mounting at both ends as the UAE labour market has been booming driven by rapid economic growth and the arrival of multinationals keen to open up offices as a base for servicing the Middle East region."
Colonel Saeed bin Belailah underlined DNRD's successful migration of its processes to electronic channels and creating a system that ensures that the labour permits are received and sent electronically to the Ministry of Labour.
"As a result of this integration between DNRD and the Ministry of Labour, we have been able to significantly improve the system of visa processing and delivery," said Colonel bin Belailah. "The transfer of 113,485 labour permits electronically from the Ministry of Labour in five months means that, on an average, we received over 22,600 electronic labour permits per month. This is a remarkable achievement considering the mounting workload as well as need to follow labour guidelines while issuing labour permits." (menareport.com)
