In order to ensure the paramount safety of the people of UAE, the government has enforced new laws like obtaining a GCC Or PCC by the citizens of UAE.
After the recent criminal incident in Sharjah, the police investigation exposed that the perpetrator was also convicted in his country of origin and holds a criminal record, this incident has impelled the government to make sure that a person would not be allowed to come inside UAE on a work visa if he/she is already involved in any criminal activity in his/her country of origin or the country in which he/she is staying since last 5 years.
The government has decided to make it compulsory for people from other nationalities to bring good conduct certificate from their home country before applying for a work visa.
