UAE denies ban on import of workforce from Pakistan: Zulfi Bukhari

The Gulf country's minister categorically stated that there is ‘no ban on export of workforce’, says SAPM



NEWS DESK November 26, 2020




The United Arab Emirates cabinet minister has set aside media reports that the UAE suspended the issuance of work visa to Pakistanis, PM’s aide Zulfikar Bukhari said.
In a Tweet from his official handle on Thursday, Bukhari thanked UAE Minister for Human Resources Nasser bin Thani Al Hamli for his continued support for Pakistanis expatriates working in the Gulf country.
“Thankful to HE Nasser bin Thani Al Hamli (Minister of Human Resources & Emiratisation) for his continued support for #OverseasPakistanis - Contrary to media reports, he categorically stated there is NO BAN on export of workforce - There has been 11% [increase] in knowledge workers,” he wrote on the micro-blogging site.


The reports emerged on Wednesday claiming that the UAE has stopped issuing new visas to citizens of 13 mostly Muslim-majority countries, including Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran and Syria.
A source briefed on the matter told Reuters the visas had temporarily stopped being issued to Afghans, Pakistanis and citizens of several other countries over security concerns, but did not provide details of those concerns.
“Workers including Pakistanis laid off during #Covid19 registered on Virtual Labour Market Database are given priority -10yr golden visa applications are also being encouraged Looking forward to continued collaboration with UAE leadership to address the issues of our diaspora,” the PM’s aide said in a follow-up tweet.


Meanwhile, the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) said in a tweet that Bukhari spoke to the UAE official via video link to “dispel the negative reports on ban on Pakistani workers”.
“To dispel the negative reports on ban on Pakistani workers by UAE, SAPM @sayedzbukhari got in touch with UAE Minister of Human Resource & Emiratisation to address the issues being faced by Pakistani workforce in the #UAE.”


The UAE is home to tens of thousands of Pakistani workers, who have been employed in different sectors and send foreign remittances considered key to the country’s foreign exchange reserves.
Giving break up, Senator Baig told The Express Tribune that in 2016 Pakistan sent 326,000 workers to the UAE, 290,000 in 2016, 275,000 in 2017, 208,000 in 2018, 211,000 in 2019 and even during the Covid-19 outbreak until October 51,000 Pakistanis went to the Gulf country for employment.

There is just no mechanism to stop the flow of fake news aimed at targeting and marketing Pakistan's relations with certain countries.

Mubarek Patel Network invests greatly and deeply with passion in attempts to isolate Pakistan in their messianic 2.5 front war on Pakistan.

This governance matter is likely to continue as GoP struggles with corruption and nepotism.

Good, some of this labor can go to completing the I-P gas pipeline hopefully. In the future the Pakistanis should return from these deserts and bring their knowledge into building industries in Pakistan itself.
UAE seems to be right for banning visit visa here .

UAE issued notice 2 months ago to travel agents . do not send people on visit visa to those whom are job seekers .

UAE issued circular of 2000 dirhams to be carry upon visit visa visitors . some 275 paksitanis was found violating this rules in just 24 hours .

UAE banned Pakistanis after they see we are not gonna change our mind .

They are planning to import East European to work on different projects. Plus, recent established relations with Israel cause some security concerns too . We see more Asians out of UAE. Massive housing market meltdown in UAE. Simply UAE need massive foreign investment from outside , Israel and US is there best bet. In US, Canada and Eu are heavily investing in EV projects, its cheap and environmental friendly. So, oil future is not very bright in next 10 to 15 years.

Very good point. Unfortunately like you said most of these guys are Jahil and will have paid several lakhs to agents to get a "visa" to Dubai arranged. These people go there under the full assumption that it is a work visa.
Pakistan failed to convert their unskilled workers into skilled workers. This should be our focus in 2021.
Another excellent point. Most of our guys who go abroad go as Labour. They don't go as trained lorry/bus/ forklift drivers, or as plumbers, electricians, plasterers, painters, bricklayers, carpenters, mechanics, security guards etc. If they did they'd earn at least 2-3 times more and be sought after.

Poland and their migration to the EU is an excellent example of this.

Same things is happening in Turkey. We need to get proper visa to Turkey to be able to work or open business. Our Jahil awam pay some agent to illegally take them to Turkey via Iran.
government should provide free skill training courses/workshops. Start small with pilot group and then make it available to all public.

Skill training in...,,
1) Driving 18 wheelers/commercial Vehicles
2) Plumbing
3) Electrician / Electronic technician / AC technician/ Elevator technician
4) Road surveyor
5) Mechanics (both personal and Commercial vehicles)
6) Health Care professional/ Medical assistant /Medical technician / Pharmacy technician
7) Security Guard.
8) Banking sector - bank teller / Bookkeeping/ Bank management.
9) Retail management

Nisar.

What they still fail to realize is their existence and survival in that desert is dependent on the skills, education and expertise brought by foreigners. The only capability they have is the oil beneath that sand. We trained their military,sent trained labour force overthere otherwise those camel jockeys are still not educated and skilled enough to run any modern enterprise without a foreign help.
