Hiring of Domestic Workers in the UAE
In October 2022, the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE) released an extensive list of all agencies that have been approved with regard to recruitment and placement of domestic workers. The list covers all seven emirates of the UAE, including Dubai.
Check out this link to view the complete list of MOHRE-approved agencies, which are also referred to as “domestic workers services centers” in the UAE.
Why Hire from a MOHRE-Approved Agency?
People in the UAE are urged to hire maids, nannies, caregivers, cooks, drivers, and other types of domestic workers from MOHRE-approved agencies. Obviously, this means that such agencies are recognised and licensed by MOHRE to recruit and deploy domestic workers. But what are some other reasons why one should hire from an approved agency?
First of all, MOHRE-approved agencies provide domestic workers with the training and preparation they need to work in the UAE. You can rest assured that these workers have been certified and are qualified for the position.
Secondly, hiring from a MOHRE-approved agency entitles you to legal guarantees. In case the domestic worker is unable to work for some reason, you are entitled to a refund, and you can also request for a replacement at the soonest possible time.
Finally, a domestic worker hired through an approved agency has the necessary work permit and other documents needed to work in the UAE legally. You can be sure that he/she has gone through the legal process of hiring and placement. With this, you are able to abide by the rules of the Domestic Helper Law.
List of Agencies Approved by MOHRE in Dubai
Based on the list released by MOHRE, we have gathered information about the following agencies that have been approved to recruit and deploy domestic workers, specifically in the emirate of Dubai. For each agency, we have included a brief description of their services, along with their contact information and location map, for your reference.
1. Tadbeer Home Care
Known as “the most trusted domestic worker company in Dubai,” Tadbeer Home Care has been providing professional housekeepers in the UAE for about 30 years now. As the name says, it is part of Tadbeer, an initiative by MOHRE that oversees the handling of all domestic and household workers.
Notably, when an agency (other than Tadbeer Home Care) is described as a “Tadbeer” center, this means that it has been approved by MOHRE to recruit and employ domestic workers. Such agencies also uphold the rights of domestic workers, while ensuring the safety and security of their household employers.
In particular, Tadbeer centers are engaged in the following: (a) recruitment and placement of domestic workers; (b) visa and entry processing of all documents; (c) orientation and training upon arrival; and (d) conflict resolution between employers and workers, as needed.

This way, you can rest assured that your worker has been professionally trained, and has the necessary documents to work legally in the UAE. Otherwise, if your worker was not hired through the proper channels, you may be fined a hefty amount, based on the rules stipulated in the UAE’s Domestic Workers Law.
Meanwhile, depending on the case, household workers may be sponsored by the recruitment agency or by the client directly. If you are the sponsor of your household worker and you need to renew his/her residence visa soon, be sure to read this guide.
