The MOHRE will also implement a new system for classification of businesses into 3 main categories.
This classification is based on skill level such as skilled workers or limited skill workers.

Point to be noted that UAE new work permit rules will be monitored by new system, in which ministry will check either the worker is inside the country or outside the country.



Who are Exempted from this New Rule:
Companies who are recruiting local citizens (Emirati) or Gulf country citizens (GCC Citizens) along with fishing boat facilities provider will be exempt from new work permit fees in the UAE.

How new work permit fees will be Calculated:
Under the new UAE work permit system, new work permit fees will be applied after confirming the category of company and level of skills of the worker (employee), depending whether worker (employee) is outside or inside UAE.

Category 1:
The first category of the new work permit system includes fishing boats owned by UAE citizens and UAE enterprises, those who owned memberships of the Emiratisation Partners Club, all those enterprises who are associates (members) of the youth project support institutions in UAE which meet the terms and conditions as well as the new service centers named “TADBEER”.

Category 2:
Companies are listed and classified as Category 2 with sub-classification as A, B, C and D in this category based on ratio of skilled workers and a company's commitment to multicultural diversity.
In easy words, category 2 companies are divided into 4 Levels such as 2A, 2B, 2C & 2D.

2A:
A company will be classified as Category 2A if it has 40% (40 per cent) or more skilled workers of its total work force. Moreover, ratio of diversity (range) of workers should be beyond 50% (50 per cent).
In simple words at least 50% (50 per cent) of the multicultural ratio are available in company.

2B:
A company will be classified as Category 2B which own skilled workers between 10% (10 per cent) and less than 40% (40 per cent) and at least 50% (50 per cent) of the multicultural ratio.
In simple words, as per Cabinet resolution, if company do not have work force more than 3 workers or 4 to 10 workers will be classified in category 2B if 50% of multicultural ratio is met.

2C:
A company will be classified as Category 2C if its percentage of skilled employees (workers) ranges between 5% (5 per cent) and less than 10% (10 per cent) of the total work force and it has at least 50% (50 per cent) of the multicultural ratio.

2D:
A company will be classified as Category 2D if company percentage of skilled workers (employees) is less than 5% (5 per cent) of the total work force, or the company does not have at least 50% (50 per cent) of the multicultural ratio.

Category 3:
