According to the new system, employers in private sector companies and employers of domestic workers must pay for the health insurance coverage for their registered workers upon issuance or renewal of their residency permits, effective January 1, 2025

Dubai and Abu Dhabi have already been rolling this scheme out and now it’ll be implemented across the country.

Another important update is the validity of the UAE passport will be extended from 5 to 10 years
