Employment and Labor Laws in GCC Countries

GCC which is constituted of six countries is a single largest block for expatriate employment. These are the rich countries and single largest exporter of oil and gas in the world. GCC consists of Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Oman. Saudi is world’s top rank oil exported and Qatar is way ahead in gas. These countries are fully dependent on expatriate workers for the skilled and non-skilled jobs.

Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is biggest of all countries. The KSA population is 27 million of which almost 18 million or 70 percent are Saudi’s and 30 percent or 9 million or less are expatriate population.

UAE is second biggest by population in GCC. As per data available the UAE population is almost 8.6 million people of which 90% are expatriates. In term of economy also, UAE is second biggest economy of the region and transshipment hub.

Kuwait is third biggest country with 3.3 million population of which 1.1 million or 33 percent are Kuwaiti’s and 66 percent are the expatriates. Kuwait is one of the biggest oil exporter in the world and economy is basically driven by oil.

Oman is relatively poor of all countries with around 3 million populations. It is not a big exporter of oil and its position is more coming from mines and mineral industry. Nationalization is highest in Oman.

Qatar is around 1.5 million population. The economy and population is fastest growing. Qatar is fast growing state which has known fast going after big sporting event. Qatar was the first Middle East country to host Asian games in 2006 and will host FIFA world cup in 2022. Qatar is biggest exporter of gas in the world.

Bahrain is smallest of all with around a million or less in population. Financial sector along with oil and gas plays important role in growth of Bahrain.

These are the rich countries with Qatar standing as second richest in the world as per the IMF 2011 data with more than $ 100,000 per capita income, others are not far behind with UAE the world rank 4 and then Kuwait, Saudi and Bahrain.

Employment and Labor Law

There are two categories of the visas, employment visa and house work visa (maid visa) and farming visas. Domestic workers and farming workers are not part of labor laws. Employment visa is issued to companies and establishments and house work visa are issued to the every family. Every local family is issued five visas for house work but they can apply and get more visas issued for some payment.

Employment visa is issued based on the size of company and its capital. Every local can establish and business enterprise and can get visa, these may be big companies or may be small shops. The law always favors owners.

The underlying principle of GCC countries is “hire and fire”. GCC countries have failed to establish internationally acceptable standards for migrant workers. Most GCC countries’ labor and immigration laws facilitate and validate inhuman treatment towards migrant workers. These laws are abusive, and as a result they control, restrict, and infringe on all internationally accepted standards of “fair dealing” towards millions of migrant workers. Employers frequently withhold wages for months and confiscate passports as “security” to keep workers from quitting. The combination of “recruiting fees” and abusive work environment constitute “forced labor” in this region.

Khiraj – Exits Permit – Except Kuwait and UAE all other countries needs permission of employer to leave the country. Even if the employee has his passport he needs permission of the employer so that he can travel abroad.

Sponsorship – This is system where if employee wants to change his job and join another job he need the permission from his present employer or change it. Unless and until permission is granted jobs cannot be changed. Transfer of sponsorship is allowed in restricted categories only. The issues affecting expatriate workers in the Gulf region are different from the migrant population in other regions of the world. The most important difference is the “temporary status” of the expatriate workers in the Gulf countries.

Trading in Visas – This one more phenomenon where local national provide to the expatriate worker and takes a fixed charge every year. He is not responsible for any thing of the worker. Local nationals establishes companies may be fake or real and sale these visas. A worker buys visa and is self-employed.

Salaries – I will divide it into marginal labor, blue collar jobs and white collar jobs. The marginal labor is one of most exploited class of workers. ( ALL Wages and Salaries are monthly basis)

The marginal labor – Cleaning company workers and construction workers along other marginal workers are highly exploited class. They paid least between USD 150 to USD 250. The wages are very irregular. Sometimes they are delayed for six months and sometime never paid. These are highest number of workers. Those who work in small shops are usually paid USD 250 to USD 500 depending upon working hours. Cost of living is very high. 20 to 30 marginal workers live in single apartment of 2 bedrooms. (700 sq. ft. – 850 sq. ft.) Saving is very difficult in this situation.

Blue Collar Jobs – These are the jobs of companies or self-employed. They are paid USD 750 to USD 1750. In this category the heavy and super heavy drivers and all kinds of mechanics and machinist are in demand. Their exploitation is relatively less than the marginal workers.

White Collar Jobs – These are best jobs, usually offered by good companies or relatively better one. Accountant, engineers, doctors, and investment banker are the best profession. Teaching is good option but salaries of the school teachers are not lucrative enough. College and university professors are senior or retired professors of Europe. They are most in demand at university level. They are available relatively at less cost compared to young professionals.

The salary structure varies a lot. A fresh accountant start with USD 700 to USD 800, experienced CA, CPA, CMA depending upon qualification and experience gets between USD 2000, Chief Accountant, Finance Managers, AVP and VP can fetch USD 3000 to USD 10000 and above. CFO can get up to USD 10000 to USD 20000 per months.

Engineers are the second in demand. Construction is one of the most important industry of the region and has very important role to play.

The best industry to work is Oil and Gas. This is the industry is at core of the wealth of the GCC region. It is best paying industry in the region. These are Government owned industry or subcontractor to the industry.

The other best industry in this region is banking and investment. This is one of shining industry in this region. This region is wealthy region and you need wealth managers. This industry has always done great. This is best industry as pay master. A salary varies from USD 5000 to USD15000 for senior managers.

House Work Visa – Maids and Agriculture Labor

This is most exploited class of workers. They work in homes or they buy it and work outside. Every national family gets five such visas. They can get some more by paying nominal extra money to the government. This class of workers does not covered by labor law.

Hi to all,

I am previously working at KSA way back 2013 and left an unpaid loan of 43K rials and CC amounting to 10K rials and then after they terminated my employment due to undue extension of my vacation leave. I am trying to explain but they terminated my employment. Now one agency here in Philippines invited me to submit my cv to work in UAE and the other is in Qatar.

Now, there is this collection agency asking me to settle my obligation with the bank. I told the collection agency that I will settle my outstanding payment once I landed again for a job to other GCC countries.

My question is can I still work in qatar/UAE or other gcc despite I have unpaid loan and cc in KSA?

Thanks and looking forward on your immediate reply.

Thanks,

GCC in joint push to block tainted expatriates’

In yet another move to cut reliance on foreign labor, the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) is working on a joint database project that will contain comprehensive information about tainted foreign workers.

The plan is aimed at preventing the entry of a foreign worker into any Gulf country, if proof is found of his criminal involvement in his previous country of residence.

“The project is subject to clearance from the ministries of labor and interior of the GCC countries,” said a GCC source, Saturday. He said the details of the database and the mechanism to follow were discussed by the GCC labor ministers’ meeting held in October last.

Salam Alaikum Zia Sahab,

I had had an earlier query with you and appreciate your complete response on it. You are really serving humanity with full humbleness.

Now, I am not going to ask you anything, but I am asking this from the people who have posted on this page.

Folks, you have received many comments from Zia brother, that we can go to other Middle East or GCC countries, even if one particular nation has put a ban or court case against you.

My only concern is has anyone of you faced any difficulty after going to that different country. Though I have full faith in Zia brother's responses, still I wish to know from the real people who had experienced this.

Take care, and please do respond.

May I ask how true is the rumor going around that expats from one GCC country cannot enter another country in GCC if he/she has deported from one of the GCC countries?

This is true if you have given them check, check bounced case is different. Secondly, he can fight it in Court and specially in home country he is at advantage. He can also declare bankruptcy. It is not possible to arrest and send from home country, even the local default and check bounce will take 20 years to close the case. Just take a legal process. No one can be deported from India, Pakistan , Bangladesh and Philippine ( nationals) for their default in third country and they have all legal ways to fight it in court. In western country they can declare bankruptcies. This article is just to frighten . Legally Qatar court can not deport him to third country except for Organised Crime, Terrorist activity, drugs and serious fraud. One should hire a good lawyer to fight a case.

@ Then amount can not go that much, after one year of default it stopped increasing, this the law. Go legal against them. Let them file a case in UAE, they can not do anything here. What they are doing is illegal and they can be arrested in Qatar.

@rosh werain - they can not arrest you in Qatar. If your HR is good then they can not do anything to you. If they are coming, talk to local lawyer, take their Phone Number, ID's and file a police complained against them. Legally they can not. What they are doing is just illegal. If your HR supports you, they will be in jail in no time. Legally they can not do it in Qatar for your dues or defaults in UAE. Talk clearly to HR and your boss and also to lawyer.

@rosh werain - ask him, who is he. If he does not reply, with his name and other details, don't reply. Just file a police complaint with police on the number from which you are receiving call. QNB has nothing do to with your UAE account. The card amount do not multiply as you stopped paying, it can not be compound interest, so you are only liable to pay card limit and interest for first year, i.e. when you stopped paying. It will never go to 4 times, these are illegal agents who harass poor people, if you go to Police, he will stop calling you.

Assalam-alaikum Mr.Zia,

I am an architect and have come back to my home country from Dubai due to loss of job in 2010 and have unpaid loans in two different banks of Dubai, both of about AED 25000/- each. Two years ago, I got phone calls from one of the banks and they have told me that they are going to file a case against me. Now I am willing to enter Qatar on a business visa and find a job there. Insha Allah, after I find a good job and settle down, I intend to clear my unpaid loans in Dubai banks. My question to you is,

1. Will I have a problem entering Qatar on BUSINESS VISA?

2. Will my SPONSOR in Qatar face any problem because of me?

Once the visa is stamped , now do i face any kind of problem or my company will face any kind of problem in getting my iqama once i clear medical & finger print test.

Also, please inform when can i enter qatar.

After that I went to passport office for PCC , almost every thing was done in the meantime one person in the pcc passport counter by mistake canceled my passport. After lots of argument they issued me a new passport in VIP cota.

I have initiated a visa in bahrain as my passport re issued, as my visa was initiated with old passport, will that create any problem to get that visa done in baharin?

Hi ZIa,

I have been in Kuwait for about 9 months and I'm planning to resign with my current company and join a new employer. According to our company policy, issuance of release/transfer is only possible after 3 years of service.

So I have asked my new employer to issue a new work permit. In this case I'll have to travel back to my home country and return on a new visa.

My question here is, will there be any issue with the new work permit? Because I have read in a few blogs, new work permit can only be issued after 6 months. Kindly suggest.

Thanks for your help. Appreciate it.

Dear Mr. Zia,

I would like to solicit your opinion regarding my predicament.

Just recently, I received an e-mail and fax (sent to my former employer in Kuwait) from a collection agent in Dubai, UAE. The case is about my unpaid credit card bills 15 years ago (1998) in Dubai. The amount is now very large (15 years accumulated interest). As, I am planning to visit Kuwait again next month, is there a possibility that I will get arrested upon entering Kuwait immigration?

Many thanks in advance.

Dear Sir Zia,

Firstly I really appreciated you for your this effort !

I am really worried i came on vacation for 2 months and during my vacation i fall extremely ill, now u have been 7 month on vacation, but my IQAMA is still of KSA but my VISA and Exit Re-entry has been expired even i have seen at (MOI) .

I was on independent VISA since long but i had transferred my IQAMA to my company before 3 month before of vacations.

Anyhow i want to save my visa, but my company mailed me that you can not rejoin your position as per company policy. They are not responding me after last email, I agree and understand they can terminate my position from the company but i can ask for my visa to be returned as my sponser is now my company.

Is there any solution or any alternate ?

Your immediate response will be highly appreciated.

Dear Sir Zia,

Firstly I really appreciated you for your this effort !

I finally decided to contact with you and i fully hope that you will answer me with valid solution.

I am really worried actually I was on vacation for 2 month now i have been 7 monthi didn't go back to ksa i fall extremely ill and my VISA of KSA and Exit Re-entry has been expired but my IQAMA is still valid for 1 months i have seen at (MOI) . Even i had transferred my IQAMA to my company before 2 month of my vacations and my sponsor is my company,since long i was on independent visa.

anyhow eventually I got the answer from the company that i can not re-join the company according to the company policy,

i agree and understand they can terminate my position from the company, but i want my visa to be returned.

Either i heard the company/sponser can send me the re-entry from ministry because my iqama is valid so i can save my visa base on my iqama.

Is there any option or any alternate regarding my case?

Your immediate response will be highly appreciated.

salam brother,

I am pakistani resident. I got a job offer in saudi which i accepted by signing and sending the scan copy back to the company. they processed my visa through an agent in pakistan and now i have got everything with me 90 days valid work visa. I have a family emergency and now i cannot travel to saudi so i declined to join the company however the company is threatening me to get me ban to work in KSA and also in GCC countries. my visa is of telecommunication technician. Is this possible even though my job offer didn't mentioned anything like failing to go to after visa stamping can put me in this kind of position.

Your prompt response is highly appreciated.

I have spent huge money for transferring business and selling assets and belongings in India, I may get bankrupt if the things goes the same way. Please advise what cud be the reason for not clearing my name as I never worked in GCC or did any business transactions with them .

Hi Sir,

Actually the situation is my wife is innocent. She used to work in an IT company in UAE Dunai. Her HOD resigned 8 months back and started his own company. Her HOD name is Rakesh. Rakesh, myself and my wife we have a healthy relation. Rakesh helps us financially and even he is very good friend of us. Now the problem started from my wife Manager, who wants to put Rakesh in trouble. So he hacked my Wife;'s personal gmail ID and forwarded some financial details of company like trade secrets and changed the password.

And then he had seen some of her personal chats, wherein there are chats with sandeep in inappropriate manner. I know very well my wife never chats like that with anyone. It would be someelse who sent those messages just to tease Rakesh. Sometimes even i sent him msgs saying Hi Hero How r U Love u darling.

Now based on these chats, and the emails forwarded by them they registered a complain in public prosecution saying my wife has relation with rakesh thats why she has forwarded financial secrets of company and due to which they gt a loss of 5Mn AED.

This is not fair. Some how we got the password back after 10 days and we deleted that ID permanently. At present my wife is in india she wants to come back and we cannot afford Attorney.

Could you please help us to combat this situations. Do they have any right to file adultery complain against my wife. Or do you think i have to go to police and say that am against of their false complaint. How to prove that theyhave hacked my wifes ID.

Regards,

Anil

Abraham 2 years ago

Hello Sir,

My name is Abraham.

I'm in a problem.I would be grateful if you can advice me.

I'm a recent mechanical engineering graduate and i got an offer from NBTC Kuwait which has a very bad management and it's one of the most worse companies in Kuwait. My salary was 150 KD only. Still I accept the offer in order to get some gulf experience.

I'm an Engineer,but my job was similar to a forman. I have faced many difficulties as well. 7 months continuous night shift and i have to work even on fridays etc etc.

Even then i worked like a slave to build my career.

Once i got a severe fever and some of my friends advised me to take 2 days leave by giving 1 KD to some bangladeshi staff in the hospital instead seeing the doctor as he will give only one day leave. I did like that but unfortunately one guy( who is a nurse in NBTC ) has seen employees of NBTC are getting leave in the improper way.

Since he was a new guy he focused on getting good name. So he told the Managing Director the matter and finally the MD terminated me and some other staffs for taking leave. It was my first leave in 8 months.

They terminated me on September last week and i have visa up to march 2014.

I told the HR to cancel my visa and they sent me to shoon. The passport was with the company and they gave me the passport on the last minute before going to airport.

I checked my visa and there were no cancellation seal or anything. I told the lady in the emigration counter that i want to cancel my visa and residence and she said okay and she entered something on the computer. Still there were no cancellation seal.Then i thought she might cancel it in the system.

Last week i doubled checked the status of my visa in Ministry of Kuwait site where i found my visa is still valid up to march 2014.

I have planned to visit Dubai this month as i may get a job in a company. I'm much tensed and sad. I'm afraid whether my Kuwait visa will make problem in getting Dubai work visa. What i should do sir ??...

Can i come to Kuwait in future in other companies visa?

Some one said that if the visa is not cancelled i will be banned from GCC etc.

Please advise me sir.

Thanks in advance.

@Tahir Khan - Take their numbers, if they are Indian file a police complaint against them in India for extortion of money and also threatening life. Also file a case against them in KSA if they are in KSA. They can not put GCC travel ban, it can only be for UAE. Get a good lawyer in India, who can file a good case against them and put them in Jail.

Hi Ahmed Bhai,

Good Day. I need your advice . I left KSA in 2011 with exit and re-entry visa and didn't return. I had a credit loan of 10000SAR and didn't paid. My Iqama got expired in 2012 and I gave my resignation letter in march 2012. Now I have two doubts, 1. When I am checking my Iqama online status it is showing got expired and " no specification of registered workers" what does it mean??

2. Can I travel to Dubai. Will it be any problem for me as Dubai is also one of the GCC country.

Your advice in this regard is highly appreciable and need urgent response from you sir.

Dear sir,

I had been working in Bahrain for a private company for 2 years contract from March 2010 to April 2012.Once i finished my 2 yrs contract i submitted the resignation for exit but they are not ready to release me

then i exited Bahrain in April 2012 without informing the employer and without cancelling my visa(valid up to 2013 March),afterwards the employer filed a man missing case in the police station

I would like to know whether i can enter in Bahrain or any GCC country again with a new work visa

Thanks

Dear sir,

I had been working in Bahrain in a private company for a 2 year contract 2010 March to 2012 March.

Once i completed my 2 years contract i submited the resignation but they are not ready for release and cancel my visa

So i exited the country back to india in 2012 April without informing my employer with a valid visa up to 2013 march

My question is to can i enter in Bahrain or any other GCC country again with a new job visa(my old visa already expired) as i came to know that my employer had registered a a man missing case against me in 2012 April

Thanks

@eithan - yes they can file a case.


eithan 2 years ago

Thank you for your quick response Sir Ahmed I'm just curious because I read some article that some of the people that had subscribe to etisalat were being arrested before they exit UAE due to non payment and having balance in their account.

I'm just afraid that I might arrested before I exit the country as I am still looking for a job and if ever I will be hired by other company they might arrested me when I return UAE.

Is etisalat can file a case against me?


ZIa Ahmed khan profile image

ZIa Ahmed khan 2 years ago from Kuwait Author

@eithan - you have to exit if they can visa and you can come back on new visa, if company registers a case then you have to fight the case and get cleared your name before you can be hired. they will not arrest you. As far as etisalat I can not say anything except they can not arrest you, it all depends upon the scheme you have taken.


ZIa Ahmed khan profile image

ZIa Ahmed khan 2 years ago from Kuwait Author

@rohit20092012- yes you can go anywhere in GCC, only you have to take care for UAE, the previous employer may have filed a case.

Sir, I'm currently here in abu dhabi for about 11months, I was terminated by my employer and now I'm currently applying for a job, my employer already took my residence card,labor card,health card as well as insurance for they are about to cancel my visa, now my problem is I have huge debt from Etisalat for subscribing with Mobile Postpaid amounting to 5thou dhs and they already cut off my line (can't make a call no more) now my first question is what if i will be hired from another company here in UAE are they going to arrest me before my visa cancelled or before exiting UAE or after returning back? - because they terminate me I have no means of income to pay the bill that's why I'm going to wait for my final paycheck from the company to take care of it. I'm just afraid of what will happen to me now.

Note: I sold the phone and exchange it to another model (without telling them)

And if I paid the bill to I have to pay for the whole 1year of subscription just to cancel it? - because I only got the subscription for 3months.

What best advice can u give me sir?please I really need your help.

@Mukesh - they can not ban for GCC, they can ban you only in Oman.

Salam Brother Zia !!

I am working in KSA. I have 2 years contract. If I want to resign, I have to give 3 months notice+ visa fees+ arrange return ticket by my self. Now I am getting good offer from other company in KSA. I am planning to put resign with 1 month notice. I have heard that company threat employees to BAN who resign before contract. I am afraid that they might BAN me from coming back to KSA for 2 years. I am not stealing any thing or any financial lost to company. I am just putting resign. In that case, can my company BAN me from coming back to KSA? appreciate your response please?


Abhijeet 3 years ago

I stay and work in Oman and my visa expires in March 2014. I will resign next month but if my company want to renew my visa in March without my permission can they do it just to delay/prevent me leaving. Can they keep the passport after March 2014. I have no dues, no loans etc.


Mukesh 3 years ago

Sir i worked before in Oman and had loan from bank about 9000 omr.i paid only five dues and i returned to india.now i got mail from bank if i am not pay the dues or entire money they will put me in interpol case.also they will apply for travel ban on me to all GCC country. Please advise me soon.

@sameer - please don't worry and don't be afraid of such mails. They can ban you in UAE and they can not do any further. If any one from India contacts you, call you, take his all details, name , phone number and address. Report immediately to police , a case of threat, extortion , legally they can not do anything against you.

(British Teacher) I left Muscat very quickly (first flight I could) because I had a personal problem, my visa was not cancelled at the airport as I thought I would return, I did not get a no obligation letter but nothing was outstanding - I owed no money, no rent etc everything was clear. This was 3 months ago but now I want to go back as a tourist to visit friends... will this uncancelled employment visa in my passport cause a problem for me if I fly to Oman again but as a tourist?

@shamida - it will not effect your work visa in Kuwait, if there is case or no case. Secondly i does not promote paying for visa, it is illegal and you should on work contract endorsed by your embassy in Kuwait. The Visa trafficking, sale of visa is prime reason for exploitation of workers in GCC. I do not recommend you to pay 3 lakh to enter Kuwait.

Hello Mr.Zla

Based on this previous story i sent to u, I want to ask if i can still apply for a visit visa to Qatar? Because i plan to go there for one month using visit visa. Thank you very much Sir.

"I was put in jail for 2months in Qatar because of some money issues. My company filed a case against me and the verdict was 2 months and some fine (which I didn’t pay because the company didn’t ask to pay it anymore). After 2 months of serving the sentenced, I was not being deported, instead, the company arrange my flight after 2 weeks, and I left Qatar just like a normal cancelled employee does."
