People visit UAE for several purposes which could be for work, visit, residence, investment or legal matters. Considering now a days increase in visa fraud cases, it is essential to understand the areas one could be trapped. 
These are the tips for those who would like to visit UAE.
If you get a job offer in the UAE, make sure that you get an offer letter issued by the UAE's Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE).
The prospective employees/candidates can verify the job offer's validity at the UAE embassy in their country. All legal job offer numbers start with then digits. You can use the job offer number to verify employer's validity at the MOHRE's website (enquiry service - application status).
Once you sign the offer letter,  the employer will send you an employment visa to enter the UAE. Refer to points 8 and 9 below to verify visa/entry permit validity.
You don't have the right to work in the UAE, if you are in visit or tourist entry permit/visa. If you work under visit or tourist visa, it will bring you penalties and deportation.
The sponsor (the employer) is responsible for payment of recruitment expenses, according to the labour law.
 Get company details to check whether the company legally exists by searching company's  English and Arabic name in the National Economic register.

A residence visa can be issued only when the applicant is inside the UAE having entered the country on entry permit.  A residence visa cannot be processed for anyone while the applicant is outside the UAE.
