Officials stated at a press conference that the integrated approach will cut the number of required papers from sixteen to five, and it will also reduce the number of times that individuals will need to visit service centers from seven to only two opportunities.

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization (Mohre), the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship, Customs and Ports Security, Dubai Health, and the Department of Economy and Tourism, as well as the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA), are some of the government entities that are incorporated into Work Bundle thanks to its ability to integrate all of their procedures.

Before it is implemented in other emirates, it is initially implemented in Dubai until it is fully completed.

As stated in a tweet by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates as well as the Ruler of Dubai, the Work Bundle platform would "facilitate, simplify, and shorten the procedures for residency and work's permits in the country."

Sheikh Mohammed stated that visiting government offices and following up on transactions will take about 65 million fewer working hours as a result of the new integrated online platform. Additionally, it will reduce around 25 million government processes and 12 million visits, all while reducing expenses for individuals and organizations in both the public and commercial sectors.

At least 2,000 processes were to be eliminated, and the amount of time needed for processing was to be cut in half within a year, according to an order that was sent to federal agencies and ministries in the United Arab Emirates last month.
