Indian mission warns about fake UAE Work Visas
Posted on May 20, 2019
The Dubai Indian Mission has cautioned job seekers to verify the status of their UAE Work Visas with PBSK – Pravasi Bharatiya Sahayata Kendra. This is after 17 Indians were deported who arrived in the UAE with fake Work Visas in 2017.
The status of their UAE Work Visas can also be verified by the job seekers on the website of Amer. This can also be done on the website of the Consulate-General of India’s Labour Department prior to their journey. This was informed by the Consul-General of India in Dubai Vipul, as quoted by the Business Standard.
Vipul said that the Consulate had also announced 2 advisories in 2017 given the influx of Visa fraud victims.
One advisory was regarding individuals who arrive at the UAE through Visit Visas and get trapped as the assured job never fructifies. The second was regarding Indians who arrive at the UAE on the so-called UAE Work Visas. However, these are actually Visit Visas that are altered through software for image editing, said Vipul.
Individuals must verify the status of their UAE Visas prior to their travel and it is very simple said Vipul. This can be done on the website of Dubai Tourism as well, he added.
The Consul-General said that no big Visa fraud victim group has not been sent back home in the last 2 to 3 months. A huge group of workers from Odisha consisting of 35 to 40 people was repatriated by Labour Department 4 months ago, he informed.
Vipul explained that owing to the increase in the number of fraud cases, the Consulate is working with the Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs’ Protector of Emigrants. This is to take stern action against the fraud Visa agents, he informed.
Roughly 3.3 million non-resident Indians – NRIs account for 30% of the total population in the UAE. This is as per the Embassy of India in Abu Dhabi.
