The residents of UAE will not be authorized to hire domestic workers for a few hours or days from Tadbeer stations. The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE) has barred the short-term recruitment as a prudent action over the extent of Covid-19. Workers can soon be employed for the least duration of seven days. They are not permitted to be replaced or transferred through this period, the MOHRE said. Moreover, workers will go for a Covid PCR test before they are stationed.

It was first declared that UAE residents can book domestic helpers only from Tadbeer centers from March. This was to appear as the government finishes closing down all private hiring agencies for domestic workers. Tadbeer centres, whose services are controlled by the MOHRE, have reinstated the agencies for hiring domestic helpers. Tadbeer recruitment stations were fixed up by the ministry three years ago and there are presently 54 over the country.
