The Importance of Outsourcing PRO Services in the UAE

The Importance of Outsourcing PRO Services in the UAE

- James Elliot-Square

Every company in the UAE requires the services of a Public Relations Officer (PRO), also known as a Government Liaison Officer (GLO). 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 the leading business formation and support provider in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, PRO Partner Group provide a reliable and cost-effective outsource solution for companies and individuals looking for assistance with a wide range of PRO Services.

The most Common PRO Services

PRO Partner Group, as a company, can act as the registered PRO for a company and their employees. The most common requirements for PRO services in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and the wider UAE include:

  • Resident and Employee Visas
  • 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 / Attestation of Legal Documents
  • Liquidation and Deregistration of Companies or Branches
  • Trademark applications

Why it is important for your company to have an outsourced PRO service?

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 Ministry of Labour 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.
