Final deadline issued by Dubai Government
20 February 2017
On 19 February, the Government of Dubai issued a final deadline of 31 March this year for expatriate workers to buy mandatory health insurance, or else face a fine – payable by both employee and employer.
The new Executive Council resolution has been endorsed by Shaikh Hamdan Bin Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council. The resolution, however, gives authority to extend the 31 March deadline if required.
