What are PRO services or Government Liaison Officer in the UAE

What are PRO services in the UAE?

Every company in the UAE requires the services of a Government Liaison Officer, otherwise known as a Public Relations Officer or PRO. PRO services refer to all activities related to processing governmental documents and paperwork, such as visa applications, labour cards, and company trade licencing documentation and approvals. As one of the leading business formation and support providers in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, PRO Partner Group offers a range of PRO services, providing a reliable and cost-effective solution to individuals and companies.

Most Common PRO Services

PRO Partner Group, as a company, can act as the Government Liaison Officer (PRO) for Companies and their staff.

The most common requirements for PRO services in Dubai and Abu Dhabi include:-

• Resident and Employee Visa
• Labour and Immigration Cards
• Labour Quota applications
• Investor Visas
• Family Visas
• Offshore & Security Passes (CICPA)
• Emirates ID Cards
• Company and Branch formation
• Annual Licence renewals and updates
• Changes to Trade Licences, transfers
• Regulatory approvals and NOC letters
• Notarisation of Legal Documents

Why Your Company Needs PRO Services

First and foremost, many of the activities which constitute PRO services are legal requirements for all companies and employees. Ensuring that the processes are dealt with correctly and in a timely manner reduces the risk of any unnecessary fines or similar detrimental consequences for the business.

Despite the obvious legal consequences, failure to carry out these activities can also have an unfavourable impact on a number of different factors outside of the business too. For instance, in order to legally work in the UAE, every employee must obtain a resident visa and a work permit, which is also required in order to open a bank account, sign a residential lease, connect to utilities such as electricity, and obtain an Emirates ID.
