Why and When you require NOC
Being able to work in the UAE is linked to some important paperwork, such as the “No Objection Certificate” (NOC). That’s why expats should be aware of what needs to be done in order to go by the law.
Employee: Whoever starts employment in the UAE needs to be sponsored by an employer because they will provide them with the requiredresidence visa. In many cases, a couple moves to this country because the husband found a job here.
Wife: In this case, the husband is sponsored by his employer but has the right to sponsor his wife and provide her with a residence visa. A husband can only sponsor his wife if he has a minimum salary of AED 4,000, or AED 3,000 if his employer provides accommodation.
If the wife decides to work, there are two options. She can either stay on her husband’s visa, or her employer becomes her new sponsor. Being sponsored by the husband comes with quite a few benefits.
Depending on the company, the husband can claim family status and get allowances for flights, accommodation, school fees, and medical coverage. Also, the woman is more flexible when it comes to changing her job at a later stage.
But before starting the job under her husband’s visa, the woman needs to present the so-called “No Objection Certificate” (NOC) to her new employer. This certificate is a formal letter written by the husband which states that he has no objection whatsoever to his wife working for this company.
Every woman who decides to stay on her husband’s visa while working for a company in the UAE is obliged to present this certificate which is addressed to theDepartment of Labour and the Department of Naturalisation and Immigration. It is illegal for these women to start work without the NOC and work permit.
Any woman who doesn’t follow these legal obligations is in danger of getting a labour ban or might even be deported. The same goes for a daughter who decides to be sponsored by her father.
