According to Gulf Business, this decision have been approved by Council of Ministers in UAE. This idea will be implemented by the end of this year. It was approved in this very week.
The women will be able to get the one-year visa validity from the date of divorce or husband’s death. It will enable the women’s children to live in UAE also. Women will no longer have to leave the country if they are unable to get the employment visa after divorce or death of the husband.
