Those seeking employment in the UAE from outside the country will, however, have to produce the good conduct certificate.
Residents changing jobs in the UAE can take it easy. They will not require a good conduct certificate. It is not a 'mandatory document' when they apply for a visa if they are in the UAE, said a source in the General Directorate of Residence and Foreigners' Affairs (GDRFA).
A noticed has been issued to all Amer and Tasheel centres, informing residents that the good conduct certificate would not be needed for the visa if they are in the country.
