How to calculate UAE gratuity pay

This post will give you a detailed guide on how to calculate your gratuity as a worker in the United Arab Emirates. You can use our formula to calculate your gratuity pay depending on contracts and service period.

Calculating your end-of-service (gratuity) pay is important. Knowing how the total sum is reached will help you identify any errors made by your company.

Contract Types

A limited or fixed term contract is where the employee agrees to stay with the company for a certain number of years with a set end date. Resigning before the end of this period could mean one or all of these; a labour ban, loss of labour rights or even payment of compensation to the employer.

An unlimited contract has no such period clause or number of years, and therefore, has no end date. However, a notice period of one to three months is applicable for termination of contract from either side.

Gratuity pay is calculated based on the your basic wage/salary paid into your account without additional allowances or bonuses.

Article 134 of the Labour Law clarifies what this constitutes:

"The wage used as a basis for calculating the end of service gratuity shall not include payments made to the worker in reimbursements, housing, transport and travel allowance, overtime pay, representation allowance, cashier’s allowances, children education allowance, allowances for recreational and social services, and any other bonuses or allowances."

No gratuity pay?
If you are terminated from your job, unless you break the rules as stated in Article 139 of the Labour Law, the employee is still entitled to gratuity pay. The rules in this Article state:

The employee shall be deprived of his/her end of service gratuity in the following two cases:

a - If he or she is dismissed from service for any of the reasons set forth in Article 120 or if he or she quits employment in view of avoiding the dismissal in accordance with the article. (This article deals with dismissal during or at end of probation, or due to charges of material loss, failure to perform basic duties even after a warning, interrogation, crime etc.)

b - If he or she resigns without notice in cases other than the ones set in Article 121 (if employer breaches contract or in case of assault), and such with regards to unlimited contracts, or prior to the completion of five years of continuous service in limited contracts.

Calculations for Limited Contract gratuity pay

Less than 1 year of service
Leaving work before completing one (1) year of service means that you are not entitled to any gratuity pay.

Between 1 year and 5 years of service
Employee is entitled to full gratuity pay based on 21 days salary for each year of work.

5 or more years of service
Employee is entitled to full gratuity pay based on 30 days salary for each year of work.

Calculation example
Basic salary example: Dh10,000
a. 10,000 ÷ 30 = 333.30. Your daily wage is Dh333.30.

b. 330.30 x 21 = 6,936.30. So 21-days salary is Dh7,000 (rounded up from Dh6,999.30) in gratuity entitlement for each year of service. Multiply this figure for every year of service up to 5 years.

For 30 days calculation for those exceeding 5 years of service

c. 333.30 x 30 = Dh9,999. So 30-days salary is Dh9,999 in gratuity entitlement for each year of service – so long as the total figure does not exceed total salary of two years.

Therefore, regardless of the years spent at a firm, total gratuity in the above example cannot exceed Dh240,000. 

Calculations for Unlimited Contract gratuity pay

Less than 1 year of service
Leaving work before completing one (1) year of service means that you are not entitled to any gratuity pay.

Between 1 year and 3 years of service
Employee is entitled to one third (1/3) of the 21-days gratuity pay.

Between 3 years and 5 years of service
Employee is entitled to two thirds (2/3) of the 21-days gratuity pay.

5 or more years of service
Employee is entitled to full 21-days gratuity pay for each year of service.

Calculation example
Basic salary example: Dh10,000

a. 10,000 ÷ 30 = 333.30. Your daily wage is Dh333.30

b. 333.30 x 21 = 6,999.30. So 21-days salary is Dh6,999.30

Of this figure of Dh6,999.30, only 1/3 is payable if you have worked between 1 and 3 years, so the total gratuity pay would be Dh2,333.10.

Only 2/3 is payable if you have worked between 3 and 5 years, so the total gratuity pay would be Dh4,666.20.

The full Dh6,999.30 is payable if you have completed 5 years.

These calculations are not to be treated as law, they are for your reference only. For any disputes or further clarification, contact the UAE Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation.

1. Basic salary ÷ 30 = Daily wage

2. Daily wage x 21 = 1 year gratuity figure (Or x30 if applicable)

3. 1 year gratuity figure x years of service = Total gratuity owed 

Only continue for Unlimited Contract calculation

4. Total gratuity owed ÷ 3 = One third (1/3) of total gratuity

5. Either take this figure (between 1 and 3 years) or multiply it by two (between 3 and 5 years)

6. For over 5 years, total gratuity owed will be payable.

Stop Doing These 5 Things (Daily Habits) That Harms Your Kidney - Don’t Die Young Please

If you really want to live long and healthy please try as much as possible to avoid all the following things that will be mentioned below. Always remember that good health is better than silver and gold. There are lots of hope when you are alive.


Generally, we all might have known about the shape of the kidney and how it works. We could be able to remember how the kidney works accordingly since we have been educated earlier. Being one of the important organs, the primary work of the kidney is to filter the harmful toxins and filters excess of water from our body naturally. The bean-shaped kidney is located just against the back muscle in the upper abdominal cavity of the human body . But people adapt some bad and careless habits which might be harmful to kidneys and it might also lead to kidney failure. 

Here is the list of some careless habits that we might be doing on regular basis that affect the kidney.

Urinating is the most important thing to do in our day-to-day life. Naturally, our body must flush out the waste from the bladder which is a highly essential and healthy thing for a kidney. When you remain with a bladder full for a too long period, then you are purposely getting your body into health issues. It might increase the pressure in the kidneys which will lead to serious issues. 

People should consume salt in a limited amount which will be good for their health. And if you consume salt more than the required amount, then it definitely destroys the kidneys. The fact is that sodium pushes your kidneys under risk when it is given pressure due to excess salt. So, it is highly recommended to add salt in a limited amount.

Drinking water is indispensable in our daily life! You must consume adequate water to keep your body hydrated. If you are not consuming enough amount of water, then you are risking your kidneys. Insufficient water intake might have negative impacts on your health such as forming stones in the kidney.

Well, you might have heard about people warning you not to take pain killers. But it is true because it affects the health of your body later or it might have side effects too. Even experts suggest that consuming pain killers regularly might cause serious damages to your kidneys. So, it has a negative impact not only on your kidney but also on the other parts of the body.

When you consume alcohol more than the required amount, then it directly affects your liver as well as kidneys. Due to lots of pressure-induced on kidneys, it pushes the kidneys to risk. Excessive intake of alcohol increases the uric acid and leads to kidney failure by chance.
Be cautious of these careless habits, which you should have to wipe off!

How to Sponsor Your Wife or Husband in UAE [Spousal Visa]

How to Sponsor Your Wife or Husband in UAE [Spousal Visa]
In case you are planning to bring your spouse to Dubai or any other emirate in the United Arab Emirates and sponsor their residence visa, here is a guide to help you do so. 
Below is a list of requirements, qualification and steps based on an experience by one of our readers who have shared their experience with us. Please be guided accordingly.

Disclaimer: Be advised that if you have submitted the documents listed on this page, this does not guarantee that you will be granted a visa for your spouse. Information posted here only acts as a guide based on a first-hand experience by one of our readers who wanted to share their story. Dubai Immigration rules may change. It is best to contact proper authorities such as DNRD for their updates and for more information. Call DNRD at 800 5111 or visit their website

Getting a UAE Residence Visa for Husband or Wife in Dubai

UPDATE March 2020: We called 4 typing centers to inquire as there seems to be a new process in this visa application for your spouse in Dubai. The requirements may still be necessary but the application can be done in the Typing Center already. If you are qualified, you will need to submit your documents to the Typing Center only.
Once submitted, the Typing Center will submit the visa application online. Wait for about 3 days for approval. Once approved, you will receive an email or an SMS to get your visa stamped. This is much more convenient now because it’s done online and there’s no need to go to the GDNRD office. 

Please still be guided in the previous system below. But be advised of the new system which involves submitting the documents to your chosen Typing Center.

Hi, my name is Daniel. I’d like to share my experience applying for a visa for my husband to help those who are planning to sponsor their spouses so they can stay together in the UAE.  We recently applied for a spousal visa (wife sponsoring the husband) at the Department of Naturalization and Residency Department (DNRD) office in Al Jafiliyah. This post outlines the process how I was able to secure a residence visa for a him.


Currently, INCOME and NOT profession is the main requirement for you to be qualified to sponsor your family. You only need to have a minimum salary of 4000 AED without accommodation (or 3000 AED with accommodation) to apply for a residence visa for family members.

First and foremost, you need to make sure you are qualified. In order to process a residence visa for your spouse, here are the qualifications:
Husband Sponsoring Wife in UAE
For a husband to sponsor his wife, his salary should be at least 4000 AED (or 3000 AED with Accommodation Allowance from his company)

Wife Sponsoring Husband in UAE
For a wife to sponsor her husband, she should fall under the following professions: Doctor, Engineer, or Teacher. her salary should be at least 10,000 AED in order to sponsor a husband. For women to sponsor their children, her salary should be at least 4000 AED (or 3000 AED with Accommodation Allowance from her company).

However, if the wife does not meet the requirements mentioned, like if she works in a different profession, she may make a petition to the committee. In this case, the basic salary requirement of the wife should be at least 10,000 AED (or 8000 AED with Accommodation Allowance from his company). Please note that this situation is handled case to case. It is important that you submit proper documents and requirements in order to have the a better chance of the visa getting approved.

Requirements/Documents for Visa Sponsorship

Here’s a list of documents I presented to DNRD when filing my application for UAE residence visa:
  • Application Form (Done at Amer Typing Center)
  • Salary certificate (in Arabic)
  • Marriage Certificate (Attested by MOFA – Ministry of Foreign Affairs)
  • Tenancy Contract (Attested by Ejari)
  • Latest DEWA Bill
  • University Diploma (of Sponsor) (Attested)
  • Photocopy of Passport (Sponsor)
  • Photocopy of Visa Page of Sponsor
  • Photocopy of Passport (Dependent)
  • Cancelled Visa Page of Dependent (if already in UAE and has previous visa)
  • Passport Photos of Sponsor

Step by Step Procedure in Applying for Spousal Visa

1. Fill out Application Form – My husband and I went to an Amer typing center to have an Application form filled out. We paid 350 AED for this.

2. Submission of Documents and Approval at DNRD Office – We submitted our papers at the DNRD office. We went to the NDRD office located at Al Jafiliyah Metro station (that building with colorful artwork outside). The staff reviewed our documents to make sure everything is complete. If everything is good, meaning your documents are approved, then you will have to pay the necessary fees. We paid about 915 AED for fees. With this, we received a temporary residency permit (red paper). This residence permit is limited for a certain time. During this period, the dependent (my husband) needed to get  Medical clearance exam within 2 months.
Note: The situation will be different for every application. Getting approved may depend on the salary of the sponsor, job of the sponsor, etc. that’s why it’s best to comply with all the requirements. Still, each case may be handled differently

3. Medical Exam – we went back to the typing center to apply for a Medical Exam. The Medical test application cost us 420 AED. He was given the documents to present to Dubai Health Authority (DHA) when having the test. My husband went to the DHA clinic in Karama and had his blood test and chest x-ray test done. After about 2 business days, the medical results were delivered to our home. Results were “clear from infectious diseases” which is good.

4. Change Status Application – After securing the medical results, we went to the Typing Center again to have a change of Status. Since my husband was on a “temporary residence visa”, he needs to have the permanent residence visa stamp on his passport. We paid 550 AED for the Change of Status.

5. Emirates ID Application – In the same typing center, we also applied for an Emirates ID. We paid 370 AED for the Emirates ID application.

6. Passport Stamping – Went to DNRD office for the stamping of the visa in the passport. Passport visa stamping cost us 510 AED.

Application Fees

How much does a residence visa for a spouse cost?
Overall, we spent about 3,115 AED so I could get a UAE residence visa valid for 3 years for my husband. This includes the medical exam and the Emirates ID. Here’s a breakdown of our expenses based on the procedure above.

350 AED – Application Fees
915 AED – fees at DNRD (sticker, processing, etc.)
420 AED – Medical Exam (could be cheaper depending on the urgency of the test)
550 AED – Change of status
370 AED – Emirates ID Application (Emirates ID validity will depend on visa validity, in our case it’s 3 years)
510 AED – Passport stamping and other fees

3115 AED – Total Fees (Please be advised that this fee is not a fix price, there may be a change in fees without prior notice)
After going through all the process, we were able to secure a stamp for my husband. We were so happy after getting the stamp because he didn’t have to exit the country to change his visa status. Also, this gives us more time for him to find a better job for rather than just accepting whatever opportunity that comes along the way.
Note: It says in the stamp that my husband is not allowed to work. Otherwise, if he finds a job in a new company, he will have to change sponsorship (the company will have to process it for him).
The challenging part in this process is just securing all the required documents. Make sure the documents are properly attested. It took time for us because we had to request her diploma from her university back in the Philippines, and the process took us over 2 months to do so.
There are many Typing Centers in the UAE. These typing shops are authorized by the government to encode the details to whatever documents you are applying in the UAE. The staff in these centers will encode your details such as personal details and other contact information. In our case, we went to a Typing Center which is also near the DNRD office in Jafiliyah.

Other Tips and Things to Know

  1. Based on our experience, the visa is not labelled as a “Husband Visa” or “Wife Visa” or “Spousal Visa”, it’s basically just termed as “Residence Visa” on the sticker.
  2. Make sure you have completed requirements so that you can present everything to the government staff. It’s much easier for them to approve the visa if you have all requirements.
  3. The approval of getting a visa for the husband would depend on the professional background of the wife, but it is still a case to case basis. 
  4. For the wives who will sponsor their husbands, there is a ladies section in the DNRD so you can have priority when processing your application.
  5. Based on our research, we found out that the process is similar as that of a resident sponsoring a family member (child, parent) in the UAE although the qualifications may be different.
  6. There are other DNRD offices in Dubai. I think there’s on in Jebel Ali. We just picked the office in Jafiliyah as it’s the one nearest our home address.

Location Map of General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs Jafiliya – Dubai

This is where we went to go to the DNRD office. Below is a location map for your reference. Nearest metro station is Al Jaffiliyah Metro Station (Red Line). It’s actually right outside the station exit.
