Getting a job in Dubai from Nigeria would of require you investing your money and time to keep applying to companies with job openings that are offered to both residents and international applicants.


Once you successfully land a job from any job site, the first thing to do is to confirm the genuineness of the employer(s). After that, create a rapport the rep contacting you from the employers end and don’t waste time before requesting for a written job contact letter, otherwise known as employment letter.

When your prospective employer issues you written confirmation of a job offer, they begin the employment visa application process on your behalf.

Wait for the employer to complete and submit the necessary application to sponsor you for a Dubai employment visa. Note that the employer is also responsible for paying the applicable employment visa processing fees. The information supplied all along from the start of your process must be very accurate as the United Arab Emirates immigration department will contact you when the information submitted by your employer has been verified.

Submit to a medical examination and blood test to rule out diseases such as HIV, hepatitis C or tuberculosis. Submit your medical records, two passport-size photos and photocopies of your passport, written job offer verification and employment visa application (the one completed by your employer) to the Department of Health and Medical Services to obtain a health card; this step is mandatory for foreigners working in Dubai.

Submit the necessary documents from your employers, a copy of your credentials and any other attaching documents to Dubai’s Ministry of Labour office to obtain a labour card. Include a passport-sized photo, three copies of your employment letter and photocopies of your entry visa, medical records and employer’s labor license.
