UAE warns against hiring domestic helpers from unverified social media ads


Abu Dhabi: The United Arab Emirates (UAE) government has warned against hiring domestic helpers from unapproved agencies or through advertisements on social media.

In this regard, the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization (MoHRE) posted an advisory on Twitter on Tuesday.

“MoHRE calls on employers, UAE nationals and residents to engage with MoHRE-approved domestic worker recruitment agencies to hire workers and avoid dealing with social media pages that promote illegal employment,” MoHRE tweeted.

The proposal was made ahead of the start of Ramzan, when the demand for domestic services usually increases.

“Dodgy pages and accounts on social media started advertising this employment to attract those who want to hire domestic workers,” the ministry added.

Under the UAE’s new domestic law, which will come into effect on December 15, 2022, only licensed establishments will be able to provide domestic services.

MoHRE advises residents to check the reliability of agencies promoting these services by calling 600 590 000. The accreditation bodies can also be viewed through the official links.
