How to work on Housewife Visa?
There is no doubt that statement “Housewife not allowed to work” is absolutely correct, but there are some other legal ways to work in Dubai if you are holding a housewife visa.

What are the steps to be follow?
1: No Objection Certificate:
2: Labour Card:
You are only allowed to work if you can provide an NOC Letter from your husband stating that he will allow you to work. After a successful job hunt, get NOC letter from your husband, submit that letter to the company you will work for, company will apply a Labour Card for you.
This is the best legal way to work in Dubai on spouse (wife) visa, otherwise you are not allowed to work without Labour Card and NOC.

Working without Labour Card:
In case, if you are working without a Labour card both you (wife) and the company (sponsor) will need to pay fine and you could face imprisonment and may face deportation if caught working.

How to seek Court Help?
There is no legal way to submit a case or to complaint, as this is totally illegal to work on housewife visa without getting Labour Card or Husband NOC, But You may contact the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (previously, the MOL) in the event of a dispute with your employer (company) or should you face any infringements or violations in respect of your rights as an employee (worker).
