New conditions drawn up for Ethiopian domestic workers headed to UAE
An Ethiopian official said the country’s government is close to lifting a ban on its nationals working in the UAE after reaching a labour agreement with authorities in the Emirates.
The treaty, expected to be made public in the next two months, would guarantee a minimum wage and insurance for Ethiopian maids and low-paid workers, the official claimed.
In July, the Ethiopian government banned women from coming to the UAE to work as maids after a series of complaints about serious physical and sexual abuse.

that is good news our government must do more for such problems
I would love to advice my people to stay home and find a good idea to make a living rather than dreaming about the so called good life in foreign land east,west or Mideast the reality is you are outsider no matter what. In Ethiopia under current EPRDF leadership there are many opportunity here is tips for you get in a good group with a good idea and ask for small inter-price business loan then you are on your foot for success,
This new rule\policy\condition is only on paper. There is no Enforcement clause.
So life will move on and the maids will suffer.We ought to learn from our neighbours from the south Kenya, Tanzania, or Uganda. You don’t see maids flooding the airports in those countries to go to Gulf States.
The culture of using humans as exportable, hard currency earning items need to stop.

I agree with on your comment “In Ethiopia under current EPRDF leadership there are many opportunity” Yes ! That is TRUE ! The problem is our brothers, and sisters in the diaspora always lying to the young generation by sending a picture next to the unknown owner car, and vilas ;instead of telling the truth. So far it is getting better now, we knew everything about their lie, but still there few young Ethiopians trust their propoganda….
There you have a clear evidence of Azeb women exporting to Arabs as a sex slaves. And these chiggarams weyannes govt. Are allowing this sex slavery to Arabs. What is this penteconte is doing to stop this. No, he is behind a modern sex slavery.
GIMMATAMS WEYANNES GOVT.
What a Shame .These bandits are treating with the UAE state as if our ladies are simple marketing goods .It’s concerned of Human Lives .If these poor ladies are obliged to be exiled is because of the countrie’ s low income problem .Unable to feed they and their families .Not really as stated above two Stupid Agazi Ass Holes ,looking for conforts and leisuries .It is also the result of bad
governance of the TPLF Tyranni and the looting of the peoples wealth by the Tigre Mafiosis and their Bandas .Whatever they say or write these evil bandits are accountable for the suffering and the death of our sisters in the Arab World .
watch the irony now, most of the comments will be from people whose women have no right to leave by foot let alone by plane, whose women get raped in deserts and their kidney sold as a spare part..you know who I am talking about….Ansebas…
paper feast ,the irony for you and your thuggy bros is that between the Ansebas peoples running away there are also your own bros and sists disguised as Eri guys ….LOL !!!!
As said our dear elders ” Zemed ke zemedu Ahya Ke Amedu” . Amice Adgi Banda !!!!
Very good news. We live now in a globalized economy. India, Philippines, Nepal, Bangladesh and others all have workers working in the Gulf Region. Not only maids but professionals too like Doctors, Engineers and nurses. Dubai business now mainly is moved by Indian Millionairs that went there as workers and built their fortune. I do not see why we Ethiopians can’t do the same.
I would like to inform the Government that one tactic that employers use to intimidate their foreign workers is that they demand their Passports and won’t give it back to them. Since these are registered workers at the Embassy, the Embassy should be gracious enough to help them get another copy of a Passport. Also there should be a clause in the agreement that allows for Ethiopian workers to change jobs that they deem better giving their bosses reasonable time to find another worker.
It would be nice also to see Ethiopian Bank branches open all over The Gulf, good for business and good for Ethiopians.
Good Luck and do not listen to the negative. Respect the laws, save your money
One isn’t it too early to say it is on paper or not, because time is a factor and we have not yet seen the policy enacted to say so.
Second, Do you know China and India actually have many domestic workers in other countries too with their economy being the way it is? So this has been there, even east Europeans go to west to do similar, or closer jobs. This is human behavior to search for job. Or else why don’t you start creating job for your sisters, other than remotely commenting?
Thanks for being polite when you will answer my questions, either here or to yourself.
Gebru , John and EPRDF lovers
There is ruling class and there are majority who are being ruled.
For the few in the ruling class, life in Ethiopia is thriving, business is booming employment is abundant, every door they knock is open, for the majority, eating once a day is luxurious, even after graduation a cobble stone is waiting under safety net.
It was up to the government to create a favorable policy and condition for its citizens to create job or employment opportunity.
It is only economic problems that makes the young to flee in exodus from their own country. Just recently how many has died trying to cross to Yemen illegally. Whose body was that, all over the news in the sands of the beach of Yemen ?
The regime you are supporting has rotten from the stem, no other branch will be healthy. It’s corrupted, it’s a racist, ….nepotism, cronyism is highly developed. It doesn’t respect it’s own law…..
So you guys are trying to be idiot-smart siding with a regime who has created a slavery system in modern age.
” geze yesetewe kil dengay yesebral “
Ethiopian women have the right to travel anywhere they please. The Ethiopian economy can not absorb all the graduates graduating every year, neither China. So individuals have to create their own job (open a business) or go abroad.
It would be very selfish of us that are outside living a good life preventing others from doing what we have done. When giving a permit they should have an age limit because I have heard instances in Wollo where Muslim fathers pushing their young daughters to go.
We have been crying for the last twenty plus one year about this illegal human trafficking.
For weyane elites and their watchdogs it’s highly profitable business. These Kerakenbos, weyene, never attempt let alone find the remedies for this terrible long standing problem . The only solution for this and any other problems is to irradiate parasitic-mercenary weyane once and for all from the land of Ethiopia.
When it comes to Arab countries and their relationship with Woyane on Ethiopia we should never let our guards down.
All those home grown enemies such as Shabia and TPLF/Woyane were groomed and nurtured in Arab counties. Now it is the continuation of their “Let’s Ruin Ethiopia” program that was created before 1991 Woyane era.
All Arab counties especially Gulf give their citizens including the beduans rights to abuse Ethiopians and poor foreigners who came to their country to work as labors, maids and servants. Fairness and human rights never have or will ever exist in Arab countries. Even to their own women. Qatar may be slightly better democratic to its own citizen but not to foreigners.
Guess what now we have Alamoudi the Saudi Billionaire who is ruining the farm environment and sending organically farmed vegetables and food to Qatar and building his empires at the destruction of Ethiopia.
There is no friend of Ethiopia in the whole Arab continent except maybe Yemen who is also a victim of Saudi invaders.
Qatar is acting as a Super Power like Saudi Arabia not because they are strong in military and technology but because they are oil rich and can buy African greedy so called leaders
C’est moi senait
What? Did you say gematam? who?
Did you small yourself, I guess so.
kerfatam arogit. Change your underwear first.
There is no safety for these women in the Arab world. Why go for minimum pay?
It is sad that these women can not get work at home with the 11.4% growth and all and they have to be exported as laborers. What is next for Woyane banda mengest?
All current and former Ethiopian models should have been an outspoken advocates against maid trafficking. But none dares to stick out her neck, and this is typically why Ethopians remain in the dark. Ethiopian models, as we saw recently, stump for Obama and are active for other comparatively worthless causes while the cause of all causes Yenat Ager Tirree goes unheeded.
ethiopians listen to this azeb meles wife she have great connection to UAE labor official they make all kind of mony out of this poor ethiopian sisters
now i was in dubai for few days shopping and the hotel that i stay have club i see so many most of them black american millitary the way they do to thjis ethiopian girls make you cry they treat them just like dog i see the arab is more human than the american black we was at the loby they just use them like they worth nothing after we see all friend of mine she took video but we can’t post it for nazreat policy
we see more white and arab man have respect to ethiopian women as we see that night but the black americans are vary rude and have NO respect to this poor ethiopian work in this hotel so sad sad and the hotel employs told us the ethiopian women most of them are get mistreated by them black american evry day the indian women employ she say there was situation that one time few black american took 3 ethiopian women to their flat and use them all night then bring them by hotel parking to pick the ID they left @ the bar she say at the same time 1 of the girl have blood on her face she was hit on the left eye she say that was the time we call police they arrest 3 of the man and we let to police work on the case .
after we heard this and many more damage done to our ethiopian sister by black american millitary in the UAE it was big surprise we advice to our ethiopian sister to saty out of this
It is time also not to feel sorry for Ethiopians who flock to Arabia. It should be made clear to the average Arabia travler, the Abyssinian maid, that her plight is self-created. We need to force change the mentality. It is like a crack-addict American woman from a good family who makes the round to crack houses no matter what the intervention. Her folks simply give up on her. She has sold her soul for ever. The comparrison is unfair but the change has to come from within for Abyssinian cats a.k.a maids.
Before we go to India and China, let’s start with our own backyard. How many Kenyans, Tanzanians, Ugandans travel to Arab Countries as maids?
Do any of these countries government sign a contract to ship 100,000 maids to Saudi Arabia?
Why Ethiopia alone? are we much worst that Kenyans or Tanzanians or there are underlining issue we don’t want to discuss here?
We are not talking a few here a few there. Have you been to Bole airport lately? It looks like maid export Central!
Soon we might start to use the Cargo terminal.
