The United Arab Emirates: 2024 Emiratization Compliance Checks

Key Points  

  • The United Arab Emirates will begin Emiratization compliance checks on 1 July 2024 


The government of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) reminded employers that Emiratization compliance checks will begin on 1 July 2024.  All companies must ensure that Emiratization target requirements for the first half of the year have been met.  

This aims for a 1% increase in the number of Emiratis in skilled jobs at companies with 50 or more employees, in accordance with the Council of Ministers’ decisions.
