DILI, 24 may 2022 (TATOLI) – Arabian Centers Human Resources Group Jobs Global, and Incanto Group will possibly send 300 Timorese workers to United Arab Emirates (UAE), revealed the Director of Incanto Group, Joanico Jeronimo.

Jeronimo said the 300 workers were ready to be sent to Dubai to work mainly in the restaurants like KFC, McDonald’s, and Starbucks: “They also will be working at airports and Hotels: “According to the contracts, these workers will work up to two years, but they may extend their contract with the company.”

“We will talk with the government, especially the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation (MoFAC) to prepare their working visa,” Jerónimo told reporters after having a meeting with the President of the Republic, José Ramos Horta, at the Palace of the Government, in Dili, on tuesday.

“The companies in Dubai, through Jobs Global and Incanto Group would book their tickets. Hopefully, these 300 workers will depart for Dubai within the month of july,” he said.

Concerning the protection and safety of these workers, Jerónimo stressed that the environment and situation in the UAE have significantly changed compared to 10 years ago: “Yes, there were incidents but it happened to the household servants and those who are working in the infrastructure areas. But our workers will be fine because they will be working mainly with international companies like KFC, McDonald’s, and Starbuck. That’s why President Horta reminded us to carefully pay attention to contracts to prevent any misunderstandings between workers and Dubai’s companies.

He said Jobs Global and Incanto Group had planned to send up to 2.000 workers to Dubai, saying unfortunately only 300 Timorese out of 3.000 applicants were passed the test.

“The result of this test indicated that we need to do something to improve the English skills of the Timorese workers. So, Incanto Group and Jobs Global came up with the idea of planning to set up an International Academy Training Center (IATC) to facilitate training for Timorese people with trainers from Cambridge University of the UK, and UAE,” he explained.

He said if Timorese workers get the Advanced Certification in Cabin Crew and Hospitality Training then they can apply to work abroad.

“If we don’t establish the IATC, then it’s hard to find Timorese people with good skills who can fit the overseas labor market like in UAE,” he added.

At the meeting, Jeronimo said President Horta encouraged and motivated Jobs Global and Incanto Group to accelerate the ongoing process of sending Timorese workers to Dubai.

“President Horta advised Jobs Global and Incanto group to cooperate with the Government, especially the Secretary of State for Vocational Training and Employment (SEFOPE), and relevant ministries before sending workers to Dubai to anticipate and reduce any possible risks,” he said.

To ensure the protection of Timorese workers in Dubai, the President of the Arabian Centers Human Resources Group Jobs Global, Samer Salibi said the environment has been set for the foreign workers to be protected to get what they expect to contribute to their country’s economy.

“The government of UAE has set laws to protect and ensure the safety and protection of the migrant workers in UAE. For instance, 90% of the population living in UAE are foreign workers and they are protected,” Salibi said.

He said sending Timorese workers to UEA would benefit Timor-Leste in two ways: workers would gain experience and at the same time send money back home to support families’ economic hardship.
