Working on Husbands Visa in Dubai
On your visa you will see the words “HOUSEWIFE/NOT ALLOWED TO WORK.” You are of course allowed to work but only after you obtain a NOC (No Objection Certificate) from your husband stating that he will allow you to work. When you do eventually find a job the company hiring you has to then apply for a labour card for you – you cannot work for them legally without this. .
If you are working without a labour card both you and the company can get fined and you could face imprisonment and/or deportation if caught. Should there be any dispute between you and your employer you will not be able to submit a complaint to the labour courts as you are working illegally.
An article publish in the Daily Echo serves as a reminder of just how important it is to obtain an NOC where applicable.
