What is Emiratization?

Emiratization Services in the UAE

In the UAE, the Emiratization program has been and is now a hot topic, especially in light of the encouragement of foreign investment and the easing of limits on foreign ownership. Therefore, to support these efforts, we are providing Emiratization services for foreign investors looking to establish companies in the region.

The importance of Emiratization

Emiratization in Dubai is a vital process. The UAE government is aware of the significance and benefit of Emirati talent being utilized by the larger private sector. Consequently, the government has started a number of programs, NAFIS being the most recent, with the goal of bridging the gap between public and private sector organizations’ needs, wants, and expectations. To help you understand more about it, we provide our Emiratization program to support your business.


New Emiratization Requirements

All employers who fall within the purview of the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization are subject to the new Emiratization criteria (i.e. outside of the free zones). Companies in the private sector with 50 or more workers are obligated to increase the proportion of Emirati workers on staff above their present quota by 2% annually until they reach 10% in 2026. According to the total number of qualified employees in the organization, the precise number of Emiratis needed will be determined.

Employers must make sure that they abide by all labor laws, that they have given each UAE national a work visa and employment agreement, registered them with the appropriate pension jurisdiction, and paid people through the Wages Protection System before Emirati nationals can be counted against the quota. Companies should be aware that current Emirati employees hired before January 2023 will not be counted toward the quota (although this may depend on the employer’s current Emirati employee count and the make-up of their workforce).
