UAE postponed requirement for good conduct certificate

The rule called for the certificate to be issued in job applicant’s home country or five-year country of residence

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation announced on Sunday, that the UAE has suspended a requirement that expat job seekers obtain a certificate of good conduct.

The rule, which went into effect on February 4, mandated that a ‘good conduct and behaviour certificate’ must be issued be a job applicant’s home country or five-year country of residence.

Once obtained, the rule called for the document to be attested by the UAE embassy in the applicant’s country of origin, or by the UAE’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs; a process like the procedure for marriage certificates and education qualifications.

On Sunday, however, the Ministry replied to Twitter inquiries with a message noting that “the good conduct certificate is postponed from the first of April till further notice.”

No further details were given on the decision.

As recently as last week, the Ministry was replying to queries about the status of the requirement mandating good conduct certificates, and promising that any update “will be shared on the official channels.”
