The exploitation of Nepalese migrant workers is linked with glitch and the glamor of Gulf states. The gulf is now a glamorous region in the world. Their infrastructures are breathtaking. For example, Burj Khalifa in Dubai is the tallest structure in the world. Some wonderful structures are in progress, such as a Qatar stadium for the FIFA World Cup 2022. However, the exploitation of Nepalese migrant workers exposes the glitch of the Gulf, which is the extreme violation of human rights. Reports reveal that Nepalese migrants are dying at a rate of one in two days while doing a construction work in the Gulf. Hence, this paper is focused on providing a broad outline of the working conditions of Nepalese migrant workers from the perspective of human rights. Through an overall analysis of academic and non-academic journals, migrant Nepalese worker’s condition of the Gulf and UAE have been discussed.
