Establishments wishing to cancel work permits and labour cards need to directly approach Tas’heel centres directly, as the Ministry of Labour will no longer provide this service starting on Sunday.
Tas’heel is an online government system designed to simplify all labour-related processes.
Time saving effort
According to Humaid Bin Deemas, Undersecretary at the Ministry of Labour, this step comes to save the time and effort of customers by providing the services, from typing application to cancelling of cards, at one stop, without having to visit the Labour Ministry offices.
Bin Deemas called on establishments to present their requests directly to the 25 ‘Tas’heel’ service centres in Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, Umm Al Quwain and Al Ain City.
In Abu Dhabi, establishments can apply through typing centres linked with the Tas’heel system.
He pointed out that the ministry’s offices will stop receiving requests for cancellation beginning on Sunday.
Bin Deemas said owners of establishments, who have the e-signature, may avail of this service starting on Sunday. However, those who do not have their e-signature have until September to get it, as manual applications will only be accepted until the end of September.
He said after the establishment owners cancel labour cards at the Tas’heel centres, the data will be sent electronically to the Labour Ministry. The Labour Ministry will then send the data to the Residency and Foreigners Affairs Departments.
Bin Deemas said this service will benefit more than 280,000 establishments registered with the ministry and which carry out more than one million different cancellation transactions.
He also noted that the e-link project includes linking about 20 key services between the ministries of Labour and the Interior.
He said the new procedure allows the owners of the joint system to facilitate the completion of the procedures for cancellation round the clock, seven days a week
