Al Ansari Exchange, UAE-based leading global remittance and foreign exchange company, has launched a ‘Domestic Workers Salary Payment’ service in line with the UAE Government’s efforts to create a stable and healthy work relationship between domestic helpers and their employers.

The new payment service enables employers to pay the salaries of their domestic workers through Al Ansari Exchange branches in the UAE without any extra cost.

This new service is in line with the guidelines of the Central Bank of the UAE (CBUAE) and directives of the UAE Ministry of Human Resources & Emiratization (MOHRE) to safeguard the rights of both the workers and their employers.

Our new ‘Domestic Workers Salary Payment’ solution is a step in this direction allowing sponsors to make hassle-free payments to their employees on time. This launch strategically aligns with our efforts to be financially inclusive keeping pace with the digital age and ensuring we cater to the needs of all our customers including the unbanked population.”
