DUBAI— The external branches of the Dubai Naturalisation and Residency Department (DNRD) may soon be providing the services for labour card cancellation. If the service starts, individuals will be able to complete the procedure of cancellation of labour cards at any of DNRD branch without having to go to the Ministry of Labour (MoL).
DNRD and MoL are currently discussing the feasibility of providing Labour Card cancellation service at all DNRD's external branches across the emirate.
A team from DNRD and the Ministry of Labour was formed to study the feasibility of the process and identify the requirements as well as prepare a time frame for the gradual execution of the project across the 12 offices of DNRD in Dubai.
The cooperation details were discussed during a meeting between Humaid bin Dimas, Acting Under-Secretary Ministry of Labour, and Major Khalifa Matar Balkobaa', Head of External Centre Sector at DNRD, along with a number of employees from both sides.
Bin Dimas, expressing satisfaction over the ongoing strategic partnership between MoL and DNRD, said that the cooperation will benefit a large number of expatriates and help in reducing the commuting time by using the facilities of the nearby branches of DNRD.
