Ministry of Human Resources & Emiratisation - MoHRE has a guide on job titles and skill levels. This guide shows the level of skill assigned to various positions. The level of skill is measured in terms of academic qualifications and experience needed and complexity of work involved. There are five levels of skills, 1 to 5. Jobs that need a skill of level 1 are for the highly-skilled people and those that need a skill of level 5, are for the lower skilled.
Employees holding a job that needs skills of levels 1, 2 or 3 are required to submit their academic certificates duly attested in order to get a work permit from the ministry. Professions that need skills of levels 4 or 5, do not require attestation.
The cost of work permits depends on the firm’s classification with the ministry. You may enquire about the cost from Tasheel, the provider of MoHRE labour services.
