Dubai - September 16, 2005: The UAE Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs has recently chosen IntegraScreen as its Exclusive Partner to screen visa applicants into the Country.

Fake documentation and degrees provided by an increasing number of international job applicants is a cause for major concern in the United Arab Emirates. The government has now initiated a campaign to curb immigration fraud and have enlisted the assistance of IntegraScreen working alongside Emirates Post in a joint venture.

IntegraScreen will now verify degree certificates provided by visa applicants seeking to work in the UAE; any applicant found to have counterfeit documentation will be screened out from the visa application process.

Abdullah Al Daboos, Director General of Emirates Post said that "Emirates Post will continue its quest for new opportunities to serve its customers, without compromise on the present quality of its service". He followed by saying that the "Quality of services provided by Emirates Post is as important to us as the quantity. That is why we are glad to be working with IntegraScreen which is the ideal company in terms of customer service".

IntegraScreen is one of the world’s leading providers of Immigration Screening and Document Verification Services which it provides through its network of offices worldwide.

Scott Graham, Managing Director of IntegraScreen said "We are delighted to partner with the UAE government in this initiative. We believe by screening out those persons with fraudulent documentation we will increase the quality of the workforce in the UAE and will enable employers to have the confidence of knowing that they are hiring the genuine article."

This immigration screening initiative coupled with the recent revoking of the ban on re-entry into the country of expatriates who leave their jobs or cancel their residence visas demonstrates a concerted effort on the part of the UAE government to improve the quality of their workforce.
