The Ministries of Labour and Interior will jointly implement the electronic cancellation service for labour cards, with effect from Sunday.
The move comes in line with the first phase of the electronic link between the two ministries to boost the strategic partnership and achieve qualitative shift in exchange of data and information.
In accordance with this service, applicant firms seeking cancellation of work permits and labour cards will apply to the Tas'heel service centres set up for this purpose.
From Sunday the labour offices will not receive any application for the cancellation.
Humaid bin Dimas Al Suwaidi, Assistant Undersecretary of the Ministry for the Labour Affairs, said the service comes within the framework of partnership with the Ministry of Interior to upgrade the federal services, save time and effort, and ease procedures in one transaction.
He called on firms to submit their applications directly to the 25 Tas'heel centres in Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, Umm Al Quwain and Al Ain City.
He added in Abu Dhabi the cancellation applications will be submitted to the printing offices partnering with Tas'heel system, indicating that the Ministry of Labour offices and branches will stop receiving the cancellation applications from Sunday.
