Retirement age for expatriates in UAE is now 65 yearsExpatriates in the UAE have been given an additional five years of service with the Ministry of Labor revising the retirement age from 60 to 65.

The ministry had last week announced the decision to reduce the validity of labor cards to two years from three, starting from January 1, 2011. This practically gives expat workers the freedom to switch jobs without a no-ojection certificate (NoC) from the employer.

On one hand Residency Visas and Labor Card have been reduced to two years from 2011, while on the other retirement age is increased by 5 years. Has it been done to reduce influx of new expats?
