Don’t come on visit visas for job hunting, Indians told

Dubai: Indian jobseekers should not come to the UAE on visit visas and must authenticate their employment offers and entry permit visas before heading to the UAE, the Indian Consulate in Dubai has said. The advisory from the mission follows high numbers of calls and visits by Indian workers who have been duped by agents or employers on a regular basis. In an interview with Gulf News, Vipul, Consul-General of India in Dubai, said the mission does not have the precise data on the number of such calls “because most such calls are complex and raise a variety of issues”.
