‘No ban on export of Pakistan workforce’ to UAE, says Zulfi Bukhari

Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Overseas Pakistanis Zulfiqar Bukhari on Thursday denied media reports of the United Arab Emirates’ move to suspend the issuance of work visas to Pakistanis, saying that there was “no ban on export of Pakistani workforce”.

In a two-part tweet, Bukhari said that “contrary to media reports”, UAE Minister for Human Resources and Emiratisation Nasser bin Thani Al Hamli had “categorically stated that there is no ban on export of Pakistani workforce”. Furthermore, the UAE was giving priority to those workers, who were registered on the Virtual Labour Market Database and had been laid off due to the economic slump caused by Covid-19, Bukhari tweeted.
