New System to Help More Afghan Workers Get UAE Jobs

A new migration system put in place through a bilateral agreement will enable more Afghan expatriates to become part of the UAE workforce, a top envoy said.

Ahmad Sayer Daudzai, Charge d’Affaires, Afghanistan Embassy in Abu Dhabi, said that soon, workers from Afghanistan will have a larger share in the UAE job market. As of now, the number ranges between 100,000 and 130,000.

“We have a bilateral labour agreement. It’s a World Bank-sponsored project. It will bring Afghan labourers to the UAE in an organised manner,” he told Khaleej Times.

In the first phase, a total of 1,000 workers will be brought to the UAE.

“Based on this agreement, we will have managed migration of our labourers into various sectors of the UAE.

We were set to implement the first stage of the agreement until Covid-19 situation stifled it for almost four months now. We will initially bring 1,000 workers here and slowly expand.”

He said the engagement during the repatriation of stranded Afghans has led to increased coordination and cooperation with the UAE government.

“Now, this agreement will be implemented even more effectively than we had thought,” the envoy added.
