The UAE Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) had earlier on 12th April announced that it is studying measures to take with regards to current labour relations with partner countries.

An official said that MoHRE is looking into revising current partnerships concerning labour relations with nations refusing to cooperate with evacuation measures undertaken by the UAE to repatriate private sector expatriates who wish to return home.

The official noted that the ministry’s move comes after a number of countries did not respond to requests by their nationals to return home following COVID-19 developments .

The official stated that the options currently being studied include the halting of any memoranda of understanding between the ministry and the concerned authorities of non-cooperative countries, as well as the introduction of restrictions or quotas for future recruitment.

The source who didn't want his name mentioned stressed that the Nigeria government he believed did not assume their responsibilities towards their nationals working in the UAE who wish to return to their home countries.

He pointed that earlier July before the resumption of international flight, there are hundreds of Nigerians seeking UAE government help for  repatriation as they could not afford flight ticket with the arranged evacuation flight by Nigeria government.

Early August, hundreds of Nigerians clustered at their Dubai consulate office seeking the commission to help repatriate them as they could not afford 2500 Dirhams ticket.

The official noted the recent humanitarian initiative launched by the Ministry in cooperation with the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the General Civil Aviation Authority, and the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority to enable residents working in the private sector to return to their home countries as a precautionary measure to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

These incidents draw the attention of humanitarian services through the earlier launched initiative  to allow these stranded Nigerians who lost their jobs, some who couldn't secure job, to benefit in this humanitarian initiative to help repatriate them as such strandedness could lead to social vices.

So in relation to earlier warning to partner countries refusing to repatriate its citizens, UAE government had through the initiatives said they will start reviewing labour relations and impose strict quota for Work visa.

This cooperate initiatives have received hundred and up to thousands of Nigerians in our Humanitarian camp  both in Dubai and Abu Dhabi and they are making effort to make sure they reunite them with their families.

Therefore, he urge and advise Nigerians who lost their jobs and stranded to obey the visa rules by exiting the country pending resolutions to new entry visas restriction order, to avoid overstay fine accumulation so that they  can be welcomed again
