It's getting easier, and quicker, for employers in the UAE to get work permits for their new staff.

In a Tweet, the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation said work permits can now be processed within two working days by their new smart committee.

Businesses can submit their new employees' application through the ministry's app or website instead of physically going there.

They say the new committee will review online applications around the clock. 

The service was unveiled at GITEX Technology Week, which is currently taking place in Dubai.
