Dubai’s firms in Private sector to offer an 80% service discount due to Emiratisation deadline

Firms in the private sector of Dubai offered up to 80 per cent of discounts as the Emiratisation deadline overlooks by the end of this year.

Firms in the private sector of Dubai offered up to 80 per cent of discounts as the Emiratisation deadline overlooks by the end of this year.

UAE Emiratisation targets and authorities have urged private sector firms to hit them by the end of the year.


Firms that play their part will be rewarded with incentives from the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation.

Companies that go above and beyond what is legally required will only pay Dhs250 for specific permits rather than Dhs3,750.

Membership in the Tawteen Partners Club is also on offer, through which members can receive discounts of up to 80 per cent on government service fees.
The incentives were outlined in May, and this week, officials urged firms to proceed with the targets by the end of 2022.

Companies with more than 50 employees must ensure that Emiratis make up two per cent of their staff base.
This is a goal set for 2023 by the government’s NAFIS initiative.

Any firm that falls short must pay Dhs6,000 monthly for every Emirati it fails to hire.

Fines will be collected from January 2023, the Ministry said.


The UAE government wants 10 per cent of the workforce to be made up of Emirati citizens by 2026.

The Ministry wants companies to support the push to invest in local talent and benefit from the incentives.

Under-secretary for Emiratisation Saif Al Suwaidi said they are interested in funding and encouraging private sector companies to achieve the Emiratisation target before the end of 2022.

In one of his statements, this Under-secretary for Emiratisation Saif Al Suwaidi said, “We’re cooperating closely with the private sector, stemming from our belief in its role as a key partner in developing and shaping the future.”

In addition, he said, “We aim to develop the capabilities of the private sector and enable it to keep pace with changes in global business models and attract UAE national talents to work in skilled jobs through the NAFIS initiative, which is a cornerstone of these efforts.”
